Arriving in Colombo

Schedule your flights to Colombo with Etihad Airways and take a trip to a varied, multicultural city with an interesting history of different sovereign nations until Sri Lanka’s independence made it the financial centre of a new nation and it took on a personality of its own.

Plan Your Colombo Holiday

Travel to Colombo during the peak season of December to March if you want to be there for the best weather. It will be hot, but the lack of rain and humidity should make it pleasantly so rather than uncomfortable, and you should book your tickets to Colombo well in advance as this is the most popular time to visit the city. This is the best time for walking around the city and visiting museums and unique combinations of architecture from around the world. The fabulous elephant shows are also worth seeing.

Those looking for cheap hotels in Colombo may wish to consider a wetter holiday during the monsoon season when the city has far fewer local and international travellers. Whenever you are planning to travel be sure to check the popular Etihad Deals section for the best flight deals to Colombo all year round.

Flying from Moscow

Book your flights from Moscow to many global destinations with Etihad Airways and from your reservation to your return home you can be assured of exceptional service.

Major Airports in Moscow

You can travel to destinations worldwide from the comfortable, newly-renovated Domodedovo International Airport (DME) in Moscow. This airport accommodates over 22 million passengers yearly and operates domestic and international flights through two separate concourses from its single terminal building. It offers a host of amenities like a secure waiting area, a business centre, and great restaurants and cafes.

Sheremetyevo International Airport (SVO), with its three terminals, also operates domestic and international flights. While Terminal 1 serves domestic flights, Terminal 2 handles most of the international flights.

Transportation in Moscow

From the Paveletsky Rail Terminal in Central Moscow, you can take a train to Domodedovo International Airport. While the non-stop Aeroexpress takes 45 minutes, the less expensive suburban trains take about 70 minutes. Car rental is also an option and is available at counters in the arrival hall.

From the centre of Moscow, you can take a bus to Sheremetyevo International Airport. Alternately, you can also take the fixed price share taxi to Sheremetyevo International Airport or minivans from the city.

Choose Etihad Airways, the National Airline of the United Arab Emirates, for flights from Moscow to Colombo on which you will be travelling in comfort and style.
