Flights to Dubai in March

I am looking for cheap flights to Dubai for 2 adults and 1 infant for 10 days in Dubai. Does anybody know of any good deals at the moment? I'd appreciate any help I can get, I'm on a tight budget.


  • You might want to consider flying to Abu Dhabi and getting a cab to Dubai. Flights to Abu Dhabi are generally cheaper than to Dubai and it is only about 45 minutes by taxi from Abu Dhabi to most of the Jumeriah strip hotels.

    There is a fairly new airline called Etihad based in Abu Dhabi who fly to Heathrow and Gatwick and seem to have reasonably cheap fares (by cheap I mean around £230 return) compared to over £330 to Dubai for direct non-stop flights.

    If you want to fly with British Airways it's cheaper to go to Abu Dhabi by about £40 per person.

    Another tip is to maximise your time on holiday fly outbound on the night flight leaving London at around 2100 and return on the night flight leaving UAE at 0200. This gives you an extra 2 day's holiday.

    Hope this helps
