Booking a holiday in Dubai will not disappoint. From sun, sand and shops, to out-of-this-world entertainment and jaw-dropping architecture, you’ll be swept off your feet with things to do, see – and buy! This Middle Eastern Vegas is only a seven hour flight from most major and regional airports around the UK, and with affordable fares throughout the year, there’s no reason not to pay this stunning city a visit.
This is your holiday, so make sure everything is your choice. From airport to airline, you can choose the arrangements that suit you best. Fly from London, or Dublin, with Emirates or British Airways, choose economy class – or spoil yourself and upgrade those seats!
You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to choice of departure airport: both Gatwick and Heathrow run frequent flights to Dubai, as do Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle, Glasgow and Dublin. All the popular airlines offer great rates and regular schedules, with up to five flights daily from Heathrow. As well as British Airways and Emirates, Virgin Atlantic, Etihad, Qantas and Royal Brunei should be considered.
Although the flight to Dubai isn’t long, upgrading your cabin class can be a holiday in itself! The Emirates Airbus A380 takes luxury to a whole new level, while for those wanting the middle ground, many popular airlines offer a premium economy service which provides an enhanced level of comfort compared to economy class.
Once you arrive into Dubai International Airport, you’ll find dozens of transport links to get you to your final destination safely. From metered taxis to complimentary shuttle buses and the Metro, arrival is a breeze. Check with your airline or hotel if they offer a free or reduced rate transfer from the airport before you leave, to make your journey smoother.
Seven hours is all that’s standing between you and crystal clear waters, the best shopping in the world and charming Arabian hospitality. Seeing the Emirate has never been easier.
