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 Madrid

In Madrid, the local and busiest Spanish airport is Madrid-Barajas Airport (MAD). It lies approximately 13 km from the city and has four well connected main terminals. As you may expect from a vibrant and bustling hub, Madrid-Barajas Airport offers travellers excellent shops, restaurants, business facilities, advice and tourist information points and comfortable lounges.

Airport Transportation in Madrid

In Madrid, frequent and well-organised transport networks ensure accessing the airport is relatively easy and comfortable. It is possible to take a bus to Madrid-Barajas Airport where all four terminals are serviced by buses and shuttles both on and off-site. The journey from the city to the airport takes around 30 minutes by road.

A taxi to Madrid-Barajas Airport is also easy to arrange although there is an additional charge for airport traffic. Madrid-Barajas Airport has a designated taxi area outside the terminal buildings, making finding a cab relatively easy. The train to Madrid-Barajas Airport is also an option by using the metro, which connects the airport and many city regions.

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