Avoid the trip south to London, and fly to Dubai from Manchester. Easy transport links, a variety of carriers, and direct flights can be found almost on your doorstep. Fares are similar to prices when flying from London – although if you book during the off-peak season, they can be cheaper.
With direct Emirates flights running three times a day, flying from Manchester to Dubai has never been easier. Flights take around seven hours and depart morning, lunchtime and evening.
Manchester Airport has its own transport hub, with access to numerous rail, bus and coach services. Alternatively, driving is easy. Meet & Greet and long-stay parking options are available, with transfer links running every ten minutes from the car park to the airport. The journey takes around five to ten minutes, and is free. Car parking charges can be reduced through booking online in advance.
