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 Al Muharraq

Bahrain International Airport (BAH) is located in Al Muharraq, 4 miles from the capital, Manama. Its modern and functional facilities offer a myriad of services, ranging from fine restaurants to a rest area, an area for families, and a business centre.

Airport Transportation in Al Muharraq

Taking a taxi to Bahrain International Airport is a quick and comfortable option, even though the prices are considerably higher at night. Another alternative, which is much more economical, is to take a bus to Bahrain International Airport. Please bear in mind, however, that it is not a regular bus service, but a service that utilizes minibuses, which is ideal for those who travel as a family or want to share transportation to reduce the cost. The main issue with the minibuses is that they tend to be hard to find. At present there is no train to Bahrain International Airport.

Choose Etihad Airways, the National Airline of the United Arab Emirates, for flights from Bahrain to Dubai on which you will be travelling in comfort and style.
