Getting to and from the airport

Flights departing from London

London is one of the most enchanting cities in the world and it is known for its ancient buildings and contemporary architecture. It is served by airports such as Luton, Gatwick, Heathrow and others. Heathrow is the most internationally recognised airport associated with London, closely followed by Gatwick.

Flights from London to Dubai begin at one of the six commercial airports in the city. London City Airport is located in the heart of the city and is the most easily accessible airport when in the centre of London. Luton Airport is much farther away but very used by low cost carriers and therefore regularly visited by savvy travellers.

Getting to London airport

To take London to Dubai flights, passengers first have to confirm the name of the departure airport in London. If you have to reach Heathrow, just take the Heathrow Express from Paddington Station. From Victoria Station, you can catch the Gatwick Express to Gatwick Airport. To get to Luton, Southend and Stansted, just get to one of the railway stations in central London and catch the respective trains to these airports. If you have to go to London City Airport, just get a taxi to reach in time. Taxis are expensive, and it may not be advisable to take them to the other five airports as they are farther away.

Arriving to Dubai

Dubai started as a fishing village but, today, it is an international centre for shopping and partying. This city is situated in the middle of a desert and has plenty to offer in terms of nature too. Go ahead and take a ride along the dunes and spend time at a peaceful oasis. Head toward one of the traditional coffee houses where you can interact with locals and make new friends. Dubai Creek is a great place to admire the surreal beauty of this enchanting Arab city. Furthermore, experience the best of international cuisine at one of the many Michelin-starred restaurants in Dubai.

How to get to the city centre

Flights to Dubai from London take around seven hours to land at Dubai Airport, which is just five kilometres from downtown Dubai. The airport is easily accessible to different parts of the city and you will have no problem reaching your destination. If you wish to go to Burj Khalifa in the heart of Dubai, all you need to do is hop on the Red Line from Terminal 1 and 3 stations and get off at the Burj Khalifa Station. To get to Dubai Creek or Deira, Terminal 2 station provides easy connectivity via the Green Line. You could also take an RTA bus to Deira or just call a cab or taxi.
