Getting to the airport

After a perfect holiday in Dubai, you will be reluctant for your break to draw to a close. Sadly, all good things must come to an end, but when the time arrives to return home, leaving Dubai is an easy, straightforward affair that takes some of the sting out of the looming post-holiday blues.

Getting to the Airport

Most major hotels offer a transfer service to Dubai International Airport, which you can arrange through the reception or concierge. Some holiday package bookings also include airport transfer, and if you are travelling business class the airline will usually provide a chauffeur pick-up.

Dubai Metro’s Red Line has stops at Terminal 1 and Terminal 3, and trains run frequently from stops across the city. The Green Line connects more city locations to the airport. Metro fares start from AED1.80, and trains run from 05:00 to 00:30 daily. Walkways connect the Terminal 1 and Terminal 3 stations to the airport for convenience.

Taxis are another option for easy travel to the airport. If you are staying at a hotel, the concierge can book a taxi to collect you at a specific time, and most hotels also have a queue of waiting taxis outside their main entrance. Alternatively you can order one yourself by calling 04 2080808 or booking a time online. Unlike getting a taxi from the airport, there is no extra charge for cabs travelling to the airport, although there is a callout charge of Dhs.7 for taxis that are pre-booked. You will also pay slightly more for a larger Airport Van taxi, which you may need if you have a lot of luggage (the charge is Dhs.1.75 per kilometre rather than Dhs.1 per kilometre in a standard taxi). These can be requested when you book the cab.

If you hired a car from the airport when you arrived, you can drop the vehicle off again at the airport. You’ll need to contact the car hire firm to let them know of your arrival time, and they will direct you to the drop off point and inform you of any charges or procedures. It’s best to plan to arrive an extra half hour earlier than you would normally, as the formalities of handing over the keys and tying up paperwork can take a little time. You may also have to leave your payment details to pay off any outstanding Salik charges or traffic fines when they are registered – check with the individual company about its policy.
