Flying from Dubai International Airport
Flights from Dubai operate regularly and Dubai International Airport is close to the city, enabling easy access from surrounding areas. The most common mode of transport to the airport is by taxi. There is no shortage of cabs and, in particular, the cream-coloured Dubai Transport Corporation cars are widely recognised as being reliable and reasonably priced. There are also bus routes running directly from the city, and many hotels operate their own transport. The latest addition is the automated metro, which has stops across the city and was opened in 2009. For passengers who are on stopovers, there is a complimentary shuttle bus between the airport's terminals; this runs 24 hours a day.
There are three terminals at Dubai International Airport, one of which is exclusive to Emirates flights. As might be expected, in the United Arab Emirates terminal there is an extensive range of VIP services available at an additional cost that speed up the process between checking in and arriving at the lounge. The airport has a range of lounges, including two Quiet Lounges in Terminal 1, which allow passengers to rest before flights.
The airport has an extensive range of shopping and dining options, and features many global luxury brands. All tastes are catered for, from Indian cuisine to fish and chips, enabling passengers who are travelling on one of the flights Dubai offers to enjoy a relaxing meal. There is also a variety of services available, including banks, tour operators and hire car companies, should they be required.
