Arriving in Dubai

Book your flights to Dubai with Etihad Airways and get ready to enjoy the exciting local fusion of tourist paradise and commercial hub.

Plan Your Dubai Holiday

The reasons to travel to Dubai are myriad and focus on primarily commerce and relaxation. People come for the desert, the extravagant collection of shopping malls, the souks, the golden beaches, the museums, the contemporary attractions and for Dubai’s reputation as “place to do business” in the Arabian Gulf. In 2010 Dubai was the 7th most visited city in the world.

The climate in Dubai is a subtropical desert with scattered humidity throughout the year. During the off-peak season, especially in July and August, temperatures swell and at times can exceed 45 degrees. Travellers seeking cheap hotels in Dubai should attempt to arrive during the off-peak season, but should be prepared for very warm temperatures. If you wish to experience the full range of diverse activities that are available, we recommend that you book your tickets to Dubai as soon as you can and travel in the peak season. We additionally advise that you consult our Deals section to find the best flight deals to Dubai all year-round.

Major Airports in Ireland

Ireland features four international airports and seven regional airports, though the relatively modest size of the Isle limits the need for domestic air travel. Of Ireland’s approximately 4.5 million inhabitants, roughly a third live within the city of Dublin and the surrounding areas, so it comes as no surprise that Dublin Airport (DUB) is the primary airport for international and domestic air travel. Opened in 1940, Dublin Airport’s two terminals service in excess of 19 million passengers each year.

Airport Transportation in Ireland

Dublin Airport is located just 10 kilometres from Dublin city centre, and is serviced by over 1,000 buses and coaches each day. Travellers can take the bus to Dublin Airport and into the city for a modest ticket price. The trip takes approximately half an hour, depending on traffic. A taxi to Dublin Airport is also available, though at greater cost with no real change in travel time. At the present time, there are no direct trains to Dublin Airport.

Interested in Dubai? Consider Bangkok

Book flights to Bangkok with Etihad Airways and discover its secrets. Impressive temples, modern skyscrapers, and neighbourhoods where almost nothing has changed in the last 200 years will welcome you.

Plan Your Bangkok Holiday

Travel to Bangkok and go on an adventure of discovery. You'll find extraordinary and bizarre buildings like a colossal museum in the form of a three-headed elephant, a building identical to a robot, and a 17-story tower surrounded by a huge dragon. If you decide to buy tickets to Bangkok, there will be a surprise around every corner. Only here will you be able to encounter a stunning temple like Wat Arun, and then after crossing a river, find a modern shopping mall like Siam Paragon or MBK.

This city of contrasts seems fast-paced to tourists at first, but behind its skyscrapers a little more exploring will reveal, on the side west of the River, traditional houses and merchants who still sail in their boats full of fruits. With the flight deals to Bangkok offered by Etihad Airways, you will be able to see both sides of this city, but for cheap hotels in Bangkok remember that the low season is from May to August.
