Abu Dhabi is a long-haul destination – but only just. It takes around seven hours to reach the UAE on a direct flight from the UK, with regular connections between London and Abu Dhabi International Airport. Deal hunters should consider cheap Abu Dhabi flights with a stopover or look at flying to Dubai and travelling overland from there.

There are two airlines offering direct flights between London and Abu Dhabi: British Airways and Etihad Airways. Both depart from Heathrow and fly the route on a daily basis with a flight time of seven hours 15 minutes.

With only a limited number of direct Abu Dhabi flights on offer, many travellers choose to work in a stopover. London Heathrow is once again the best place to start – one of the quickest and cheapest Abu Dhabi routes is offered by Oman Air with a quick stopover in Muscat. KLM via Amsterdam and Gulf Air via Bahrain are worth checking out too.
