The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is one of the world's fastest growing tourist destinations. With golden beaches, year-round sunshine, shopping and sporting activities, you can also enjoy the welcoming Arabian experience.

Flights to United Arab Emirates deliver tourists into a world unlike any other. Keep your heart and mind open and prepare to fall in love...


The UAE is a Middle Eastern state on the Arabian Peninsula. There are seven states, or emirates, within the UAE, including Dubai, Ajman, Umm al-Quwain, Sharjah, Fujairah, Abu Dhabi and Ras al-Khaimah. Flights to United Arab Emirates are available to all seven states.

There are two airports that operate as a gateway to all seven states. United Arab Emirates flights are available to Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) from London Heathrow (LHR) and Manchester (MAH). Dubai International Airport (DXB) is accessible from major UK airports, including London (LGW, LHR), Manchester (MAN) and Birmingham (BHX). Alternatively, fly indirectly into Sharjah International Airport (SHJ) or Fujairah (FJR).

The UAE is hot during summer and warm during winter, and it rarely rains.

You can find traditional souqs (markets) in the UAE, many of which sell traditional handmade goods such as carpets and pottery and fresh produce. There are also souqs that specialise in gold and jewellery and you may want to consider bargaining if you feel that the prices are too high. The Gold Souq in Dubai is what gave it the name of City of Gold and today this is popular attraction where you can purchase loose precious stones and have jewellery custom made.

Other activities in the UAE include desert jeep tours, kayaking in mangroves and camel riding. You may also wish to traverse Dubai Creek on a ferry (abra) or view the landscape from Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world.
