Arriving in Almaty

Take one of Etihad Airways’ flights to Almaty and discover a city of fountains and lakes. This city will surprise you with its modern character and natural landscapes that are so beautiful that they take your breath away.

Plan Your Almaty Holiday

Travel to Almaty and discover a world that for a long time remained hidden from the European traveller. In the Tengri Umai Gallery you'll find an amazing selection of Soviet and local artists’ work, in the Central State Museum you will learn the history of Kazakhstan, and in the exclusive Arasan Baths you will be able to balance your mind and body through either Turkish, Finnish, or Russian methods.

If you purchase tickets to Almaty during the summer, you can explore the stunning Trans-Ili Alatau on horseback and refresh yourself in Alpine Lakes. If you take advantage of the off-peak season flight deals to Almaty, you can see these same areas under a beautiful blanket of snow and also enjoy winter sports. As this country has not yet been exposed to international tourism, it will be relatively easy to find cheap hotels in Almaty, except in the month of September, which is the busiest month of the year.

Flying from Queenstown

Book your flights from Queenstown to a number of destinations around the world with Etihad Airways and enjoy the pleasure of a luxurious trip and quick and easy reservation process.

Major Airports in Queenstown

The nearest airport to Queenstown is Queenstown Airport (ZQN) which is located in nearby Otago, a mere 8km from the city centre. When landing in or departing from Queenstown, keep a sharp eye out for the beautiful snow-capped mountains for which the area is known.

Airport Transportation in Queenstown

Taking a taxi to Queenstown Airport from the town centre is fast and painless at any time of the day. Alternatively, the Connectabus service provides a bus to Queenstown Airport from a number of hotels and key meeting points around the city. Unfortunately there is no train to Queenstown Airport, but one can arrange an airport shuttle, limousine or rental car. Renting a car is a fantastic option if you plan on exploring the countryside and want freedom while on holiday.

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