Arriving in Beirut

Book your flights to Beirut with Etihad Airways and discover the charms of the city that has come to be regarded as "the Switzerland of the Middle East." Beaches for relaxation, a lively nightlife, and the traces of the past are combined to form a single picture.

Plan Your Beirut Visit

To travel to Beirut is to plunge into ancient history: at the National Museum you can get a close look at Phoenician culture, in the Cilicia Museum you will learn about Armenian customs, and on Serail Hill you will find monuments inspired by Ottoman architecture. Beirut is not just about history, however, because it also has a myriad of bars, cafes, and pubs in Gemmayzeh.

Buying tickets to Beirut also will allow you to practice your swing on the golf courses, shop at the more than 200 stalls of its souk, and take a photo of the incredible Pigeons’ Rock, two huge rocks that emerge from the depths of the Mediterranean. If you decide to take advantage of the flight deals to Beirut during the summer, you also can enjoy the weekly One Big Sunday beach concerts. Make your reservations early to find cheap hotels in Beirut for these dates.

Flying from Sri Lanka

You can take flights from Sri Lanka to many destinations around the world with Etihad Airways and enjoy the advantages of a high quality flying experience from the time you make your reservation until you arrive at your chosen destination.

Major Airports in Sri Lanka

Reserve your flights from Sri Lanka and fly from Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA). The airport is in the city of Hambantota and is 35km from the city of Colombo. Both Terminals 1 and 2 serve international passengers, while the third terminal operates exclusively for domestic services. As the main airport in Sri Lanka, Bandaranaike Airport has excellent road and rail links. Ratmalana International Airport (RML) also offers international flights from Colombo itself.

Airport Transportation in Sri Lanka

Trains to Bandaranaike Airport can be accessed using the Airport Express Rail, which runs directly from the centre of Colombo. You can catch a shuttle bus to Bandaranaike Airport from some hotels so be sure to enquire when you book. The extensive public bus system in Colombo does run to the airports, but you may prefer to hire a taxi to Bandaranaike Airport, which will take only 13 minutes from Colombo city centre via the new, high-speed Katunayake Expressway.
