Travelling to and from the airports

Flights from London

Whatever you think you know about London, you will find there is more to be discovered; from raucous pubs to boutique shopping, magnificent palaces and parks, it's little surprise that an endless surge of countless visitors pass through its airports each year. Heathrow is the largest airport with five terminals and is one of the busiest airports in the world, used by over 80 airlines that fly to over 185 destinations in 84 countries worldwide. Flights from London to Dubai are one of the most popular routes. Flights to Dubai also run from Gatwick, Stansted and London City airports. London City is the smallest with only one runway.

Travel to London airport

Flight time from London to Dubai is around seven hours, if it's a direct flight. Flights usually operate between London and Dubai from either London Heathrow (west), Gatwick (south), Stansted (north east) or London City (city centre). Public transport by train is quick and easy from the city centre to all four airports. For Heathrow, take the Heathrow Express to Paddington Station (15-20 minutes) or the Piccadilly Line (about 40 minutes). For Gatwick, take the Gatwick Express or local Thameslink services from London Victoria (around 30-40 minutes). For Stansted, there is a direct train from Liverpool Street station (about 40 minutes). London City, in the centre of the city, is linked by the DLR.

Arriving in Dubai

Dubai is one of the fastest growing cities of the 21st century, a dynamic playground and glamorous gateway between eastern and western cultures; offering top class dining options, exclusive nightlife, dazzling malls and white sandy beaches. Nowhere else in the world can you start the day with a round of golf, follow it with an exhilarating 4-wheel adventure ride through the Arabian desert dunes and then cap it off by hurtling down the snowy slopes of Dubai's indoor ski resort in the Mall of the Emirates. Traditional Arabian culture is still present in the bustling souks selling textiles and gold, on desert safaris and at camel racing events at the Dubai Racecourse.

Travelling to the city centre

There are two airports operating flights from London to Dubai, Dubai International Airport and Al Maktoum International Airport. Currently most flights arrive into Dubai International Airport. The metro runs frequently from Terminals 1 and 3, with no service after midnight or Friday mornings. Regular bus services leave from Terminal 1, 2 and 3 and a 24-hour shuttle bus service runs between terminals 1 and 3. Taxis are the most popular way to travel to the city. If you are travelling from Maktoum International Airport, the nearest metro station is at the Ibn Battuta Mall, connected with the airport by the F55 bus or taxi. You can also take the F55A to Satwa Bus Station.
