It's not all that far from the shores of Cyprus to the shimmering beaches of the Persian Gulf. Airlines big and small now operate both indirect and direct connections on the route each day, offering Larnaca to Dubai Emirate flights that are affordable and convenient. Taking them means leaving behind the rocky coves and sizzling halloumi for one of the Middle East's most buzzing cities, topped by the mighty Burj Khalifa and lined by lively Jumeirah Beach.
It's good news if you're looking to dodge the soaring temperatures of the UAE in the summer, because the best time to book cheap flights to Dubai Emirate from Larnaca is generally between January and March. Not only will airfares be around 20% less expensive then, but there's also milder weather and plenty of sun along the Persian Gulf coast. It’s always good to book tickets in advance, as the cost of seats can increase a few days before take-off.
While many people will arrive to catch their cheap flights from Larnaca to Dubai Emirate by rental car, you might want to make use of the countless bus connections that run throughout southern Cyprus to the departure halls. There are links from Larnaca town every hour, costing around EUR 2 for the ride. Other, longer, transfers from hotspot resorts like Limassol and cities like Nicosia are also available, costing around EUR 7 for the whole journey.
It's the UAE's own Emirates airline that offers the direct hops between Cyprus's southern beach town and Dubai. The journey tends to cost just a little more than the indirect options, offered by fliers like EgyptAir, Aeroflot and Royal Jordanian, but takes considerably less time, clocking up just under 4 hours in the air.
Dubai International Airport (DXB) is one of the biggest travel hubs in the Middle East, offering state-of-the-art transport options for freshly arrived travellers. This means that the journey from the arrivals hall to the centre of the city is just a matter of hopping aboard the designated Red Line of the Dubai Metro at Terminal 1 or Terminal 3. It goes all the way to Jumeirah Beach and beyond, and costs around AED 7 with a Nol transport card.
As soon as you hit the desert ground of the UAE after landing on one of the Larnaca-Dubai Emirate flights, you can start looking forward to exploring this sleek urban playground. The needle-like spire of the Burj Khalifa dominates the horizon, boasting lookout points at the top for panoramas of the shifting sand dunes and the vast cityscape. Below, the palm-threaded coastline offers beaches to bask on, cocktail bars to mingle in, as well as historic quarters like the atmospheric warren of the Bastakiya district. It provides an engrossing contrast to the uber-modern architecture elsewhere in Dubai.
