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.

Flying from Senegal

Book your flights from Senegal to hundreds of destinations worldwide with Etihad Airways and relax in the knowledge that you’re going to be travelling with the best service, on the most up-to-date aircraft available.

Major Airports in Senegal

Senegal’s main and only major international airport is located in the capital: Dakar-Yoff-Léopold Sédar Senghor International Airport (DKR). Renamed in 1996 for the first president of Senegal, it serves upwards of 1.5 million travellers a year and is often used as a stopover point for flights to South Africa as well as having served historically as an important cargo depot.

Airport Transportation in Senegal

Taxis to Dakar International Airport should be readily available throughout the city and will take around 20 minutes, though it is important to be careful to use a trustworthy service. This shouldn’t be too expensive and can even be bargained down to a lower price. Cost and travel time will vary based on what part of the city you are staying in. There are also bus links to Dakar International Airport from the city centre, which leave regularly and should take no more than an hour. At the present time there is no train to Dakar International 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.
