Dubai flight FAQs

Which airports does British Airways fly to Dubai from?

When's the best time to visit Dubai? 

Dubai is warm all year round. October to March are great months to visit with temperatures at a comfortable 24°C to 28°C during the day and low humidity. 

From April it starts to warm up with June, July and August seeing temperatures reach 40°C, but Dubai is built for the heat. With climate-controlled malls, hotels, transport and attractions this is still a great time to visit. You’ll also find accomodation prices are lower and there are fewer tourists during the summer months.

What are the best things to do in Dubai?

Sun worshippers are spoiled for choice, from family-friendly La Mer beach to Jumeirah’s world-famous white sands. Many of Dubai’s top resorts also provide awe-inspiring private beaches.

Both the Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Fountain are must-sees, whilst a day trip to the red desert dunes is a truly unforgettable experience by 4x4, quad bike or camel ride.

The Dubai Mall is a great day-out, showcasing everything from designer brands to ice skating and an aquarium. And when you need to cool off, head for the Atlantis Aquaventure Waterpark or even go skiing in the Mall of the Emirates.

Though the daily average temperature is still 30°C in October, Dubai starts to cool down in November. By December, temperatures in the city sit comfortably around 20°C and the sea remains warm. After the New Year, things start heating up. With its comfortable climate, March is a particularly lovely month to visit the city: temperatures begin to increase, while the humidity remains low.

Have you considered visiting Dubai in summer?

You'll save money on your Dubai summer holiday, as this is low season for tourists. Whilst it’s true that in summer Dubai sees temperatures soar skyscraper-high, you’ll actually find that the city is well prepared for the heat. Sunset is the ideal time for a beach stroll and a dip in the warm sea. Plus, whatever the season, the desert is always cool at night.
