Arriving in Doha

Book your flights to Doha with Etihad Airways and experience the Arabian desert in a novel and unique way, exploring a city which is every bit cosmopolitan and yet still remains close to its roots.

Plan Your Doha Holiday

Doha is a traveller’s paradise. You can travel to Doha and take a desert safari and cruise along its glorious sand dunes. If you enjoy exploring the seas then board a traditional dhow boat or hire a yacht and have a view of the Corniche riding the waves. You can also spend some time at the Barzan Olympic Park to have an unusual recreation and relaxation experience.

Doha is located in the middle of the Arabian Peninsula desert and has long scorching summers. Cheap hotels in Doha are readily available during the peak summer months. The best time for you to visit the city is between October and May. The winter months are more comfortable and activities are more readily available. If you are contemplating a visit during the holy month of Ramadan to experience the festivities, you must book your tickets to Doha early. Finding the best flight deals to Doha is easy on the Deals section of our website.

Flying from Port Elizabeth

Trekking around the world is easy when you book your flights with Etihad Airways. From the time travelers make their reservations to when they board at Port Elizabeth and pick up their bags at their final destination, the service is fabulous.

Major Airports in Port Elizabeth

Port Elizabeth Airport (PLZ) accommodates the city’s outgoing cargo, as well as passengers. Formerly known as H. F. Verwoerd Airport, the airport is located roughly 2 miles south of the city's central business district. This has earned it the name "Ten Minute Airport," as it is no more than a ten minute drive from most locations in Port Elizabeth. PLZ is also extremely busy, serving approximately 1,500,000 passengers flying in and out of the city every year.

Transportation Out of Port Elizabeth Airport

Port Elizabeth Airport is easily accessible, as it is so close to downtown. It can be easily reached by car from Cape Town, as well as from Johannesburg. People can also depend on public buses to get to the airport. Since the World Cup 2010, the bus system has been renovated. A passenger should never have to wait more than 15 minutes at a bus stop. A traveler can also depend on a taxi to get to the airport. More accessible in the daytime than at night, the Toyota Hiaces and VW Caravelles taxicabs are modified to cram in as many passengers as possible.
