Dubai International Airport

This airport (Map pp56–7) is the busiest in the
Middle East, with over 30 million passengers
passing through it in 2007. The major international airlines, including Emirates, use Terminal 1, the main terminal. Smaller airlines,
mostly en route to East Africa or the countries
of the former Soviet Union, use the dismal
Terminal 2. The opening of Terminal 3 and
three new concourses in 2008 is expected to
increase its capacity to 75 million passengers
a year, and the Al-Maktoum International
Airport in Jebel Ali, which is set to become
the largest airport in the world upon its completion, will boost Dubai’s ability to receive
visitors even further.

AIR
There are direct flights to Dubai from most
European countries and hubs in Africa and
Asia. The Americas are increasingly well con-
nected, with Emirates and Etihad (from Abu
Dhabi) both flying from New York and To-
ronto, and Delta flying direct from Atlanta.
At research, the only direct flights from South
America are from Sao Paulo on Emirates. Du-
bai’s expanding airport is increasingly the
major stopover hub between Europe and Asia.

visit the website at www.dubaiairport.com.
Emirates (www.emirates.com)
, wholly owned by
the Dubai government, remains the major
player in the region, flying to more than 90
destinations globally. Secondary carriers in-
clude the Bahraini carrier
Gulf Air (www.gulfairco
.com) and Etihad, the UAE’s national airline –
by virtue of the fact that it’s based in the capi-
tal, Abu Dhabi. While Emirates’ famed service
appears to have wilted (especially in economy
class), it has a perfect safety record, which is
more than you can say about Gulf Air.
In 2007 Jazeera Airways (www.jazeeraairways.com), a
Kuwaiti airline, became the first budget airline
to fly to and from Dubai airport. It offers very
competitive prices – it’s sometimes possible
to find return flights to Beirut or Amman for
under Dh400 including taxes. The first low-
cost airline in the Middle East,
Air Arabia (www
.airarabia.com) uses Sharjah’s airport as its base
and covers many destinations in the Middle
East and the Indian subcontinent, with return
fares typically around Dh1000.
High season for air travel varies between
airlines. Generally, it is from late May or early
June to the end of August, and from the begin-
ning of December to the end of January. Low
season is generally any other time. The tax
added to a ticket can also vary wildly depend-
ing on the airline, so it pays to shop around.
