Airports Serving Dubai

Dubai is accessible via three main airports: Dubai International Airport (DXB), Dubai World Central – Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC), and Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH). While Dubai International and Abu Dhabi International are served by the majority of carriers, there are no direct flights that arrive in Dubai World Central from the UK.

While it’s often easier to arrive in Dubai International, landing in Abu Dhabi’s International Airport and transferring to Dubai via a coach or bus is an incredible experience. The journey runs through sublime desert landscapes with majestic mountains in the backdrop, giving all visitors their first glimpse of the Middle East and its beauty.

All three airports have reliable and regular public transport links, as well as metered taxis waiting outside, ensuring that the final part of every passenger’s journey is safe and stress-free. As Dubai International and Abu Dhabi Airport have such great transport networks, it’s well worth finding a flight that lands at either of the two.
