Linking the old land of the pharaohs with the UAE's shiny megacity, Cairo to Dubai Emirate flights are perfect if you're looking to put together a whistle-stop tour of North Africa and the Middle East. You could find yourself gazing at the great pyramids and winding River Nile in the morning, and admiring the soaring spire of the Burj Khalifa on the edge of the Persian Gulf by nightfall, all thanks to the direct and indirect hops on this route.
The cost of tickets on this popular route tends to swell with the major holidaying periods of the year: Easter, midsummer and Christmas. It’s good to avoid those key dates to book cheap flights to Dubai Emirate from Cairo, opting instead for a trip in May, November or early December. Another tip is to ensure you buy at least 20 days before leaving, so you can bag the biggest possible discounts on the price of Cairo-Dubai Emirate tickets.
The best way to get to and from the airport at Cairo is to ride the dedicated airport shuttle bus that runs loops between the major tourist districts of the city and the departure halls. You can get on at hotspots like Giza, Heliopolis and the downtown, and group discounts are also available for the air-conditioned ride. Alternatively, you can haggle for a taxi – a fair price from the downtown of Cairo is around EGP 120 in a cab.
Both Emirates and EgyptAir offer regular nonstop departures on this route throughout the week. The 1,500-mile trip can be completed in under 3.5 hours when going direct, even if prices tend to be double that of connections with a stopover. If you'd prefer the cheaper choice, then consider the likes of Royal Jordanian and Qatar Airways.
Modern, comfortable buses and metro links are what's on offer in terms of ground transport in Dubai International Airport (DXB). The buses boast air conditioning, which is great if you're not used to the desert heat, and depart from the airport very frequently both day and night. For connections on the Dubai Metro, you can simply ride the Red Line all the way into town. Fares are around AED 7 and the journey takes about 40 minutes.
Once you've landed between the shifting sands and the sparkling sea after a cheap flight from Cairo to Dubai Emirate, it's time to get stuck into the various pleasures of this shimmering, steel-clad city in the desert. You could hit the sandy beachfronts and gaze up at the Burj Al Arab, or head into the clouds with a trip to the observation decks of the Burj Khalifa. Or, there’s always the chance to go for retail therapy in the Mall of the Emirates, topping that off with a little skiing in Ski Dubai and fine dining around Burj Park.
