Cheap flights to the United Arab Emirates

Good luck narrowing down the top 10 best things to do in the United Arab Emirates – there is just so much on offer it would be impossible to choose. Many a reveller has been known to say that you can’t make it to this modern and dynamic country without succumbing to attending a camel race, and they might just be right, it does make sense to pencil in some time at the Al Wathba racetrack, even if it is just to see if the rumours that they use robot jockeys really is true. Don’t forget to drop into Sharjah, because this place is renowned for being the cultural capital of the world, so get your culture on and check it out. Student Flights can get you to the UAE with cheap flights that will see you get as much done for your Dirhams than you could ever possibly imagine. Plus, if you’re under 26, a student or teacher, you could visit the mountains and the Gulf of Oman in Fujairah for far less than you budgeted with our Black Market Flights.

A flight from Australia to the United Arab Emirates will generally arrive at the commercial and cultural centre of the country, Dubai, or the capital, Abu Dhabi. Dubai International Airport (DBX) is the busiest airport in the Middle East, while Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) is the fifth busiest. The other 5 emirates of the UAE also have international airports should you wish to arrive at an alternative location. Taxis, hotel shuttles and other ground transport is available to get you to your accommodation.

United Arab Emirates Flights

Australia is linked directly to Dubai from Perth in just 11 hours or from Sydney in just over 14 hours. Flights from other capital cities will require a domestic flight or a stopover in Singapore. Direct flights are available from Sydney, Melbourne and Perth to Abu Dhabi with an average flight time of just over 14 hours. From Brisbane or other capital cities, Student Flights can organise an alternative flight path through Singapore. For specific services, check out our airline guide.

About the United Arab Emirates

A modern and tantalising travel destination, the UAE is a remote, yet high-class destination with multimillion dollar real estate and sights upon a backdrop of rolling desert dunes. The UAE itself consists of 7 different emirates, and each have their own king - commonly referred to as a sheikh – so there are plenty of royals banging around to make your trip rather glitzy no matter where you end up. Make the most of the warm UAE climate and attend a cricket match, or even go skiing in one of Dubai’s indoor snow skiing facilities – a sight to behold. Head to the Dreamland water park or just shop until you drop at the Gold Souk or Dubai duty-free.

There is so much to do in the UAE you won’t know where to start, so ask our Student Flights travel consultants for the best tips and tricks and start your holiday planning here. At Student Flights, our travel consultants can offer you the best advice possible on the latest deals and info about flights, accommodation and tours.
