Flights to Dubai: practical information

Cheap airlines to Dubai

Dubai is a major hub for travellers on the way to Asia. The major airlines flying to Dubai are all from the East: Qatar Airways, Turkish Airlines, Aeroflot, Egyptair, Emirates, etc. Almost all flights land at Dubai International Airport (DXB) which is known around the world for its excellent duty-free shopping.

When to book flights to Dubai

Dubai is a scorcher. The summers are hot and sunny and the winters are well, hot and sunny. If you can't handle humidity, avoid booking flights during the summer months.

  • Peak season: Winter, from December to March.
  • Low season: Ramadan is strictly followed in the UAE. It usually takes place in October/November.

Flight duration

Direct flights from London to Dubai take 6h 50min.

Experience Dubai: what to do, what to see

Who hasn't dreamt of discovering the legendary charms of Dubai and the eccentricity of its skyscrapers, each taller than the next? Travellers spending their holidays in Dubai will find themselves riding piggy-back in a place teetering between modern and traditional.

Essentials in Dubai

Burj al-Arab: This building is all about sweeping heights and beating world records. It's an architectural feat. Just off of Jumeirah Beach, this building stands 321m tall and is covered in 145 square metres of gold leaf.

Dubai Museum: Al-Fahidi Fort, which houses the Dubai Museum was built in 1787 and is now completely restored. It's essentially one big history lesson of the United Arab Emirates packed into about an hour and a half.

Camel Racing at Nad al Sheba: Likely the most unusual tourist attraction in Dubai, but the locals are passionate for their camel racing which takes place between 7-8am. To reach the race place, you'll need a Dubai car hire.

Souks of Deira: For a taste of traditional Dubai, hit the souks of Deira. There the streets and marketplaces will transport you back in time and it's hard to get bored of the narrow winding streets and beautiful shops and stalls.
