Flight Stopovers in Dubai

Dubai is rapidly becoming the gateway to the world. Its position between Africa, Asia and Europe makes it a convenient hub for airlines, but one that provides a great opportunity for travellers to explore a new destination without the cost of an extra plane ticket.

And there is plenty to explore! There is no place on earth quite like Dubai. A city that has grown from the desert, that is bigger and bolder each time you visit, but that hasn’t lost touch with its traditions and culture.

A stopover in Dubai is a superb addition to any holiday. With FREEDOM you can choose from one of our hassle free, three and four day packages or pick your preferred Dubai hotels and experiences and let us create a stopover package for you.

Which airlines fly to Dubai?

The UEA’s national airline is Emirates who offer regular direct flights to Dubai from London, Birmingham, Manchester, Newcastle and Glasgow, then on to Asia, Africa, Australia and New Zealand.

British Airways also fly direct to Dubai from London Heathrow. KLM offer flights from Norwich and Bristol to Dubai, touching down in Amsterdam en route.

Etihad fly from Manchester and London to Abu Dhabi, an easy bus or private transfer to Dubai. From Abu Dhabi you can fly direct to Sydney, Melbourne, Singapore and Bangkok, among other destinations.

How long is the flight to Dubai?

The direct London to Dubai flight takes 7 hours, and from regional UK airports around 15 or 30 minutes longer.

Flight times for popular onward routes include:

  • Dubai to Sydney – 13 hours 30 minutes
  • Dubai to Perth – 10 hours 35 minutes
  • Dubai to Auckland – 15 hours 45 minutes
  • Dubai to Bangkok – 6 hours
  • Dubai to Singapore – 7 hours 25 minutes
  • Dubai to Bali – 9 hours 5 minutes
  • Dubai to the Seychelles – 4 hours 30 minutes
  • Dubai to Mauritius – 6 hours 40 minutes
  • Dubai to Nairobi – 5 hours 10 minutes
  • Dubai to Johannesburg – 8 hours 25 minutes

How long should I stopover in Dubai?

Two or three days in Dubai gives you time to both explore the city and head out into the dunes for a little adventure or to experience more traditional Emirati life, such as on an overnight desert safari.

With four days you could enjoy some time on the beach or visit one of Dubai’s fabulous waterparks, such as Aquaventure at Atlantis, The Palm. You could also take a day tour to Abu Dhabi.

Make sure to book your Dubai excursions and experiences in advance. Tickets for At The Top, the Burj Khalifa observation deck, and La Perle, a musical extravaganza, sell out fast.
