Airline recommendation

We’re delighted to recommend Emirates as the airline to fly to and from Dubai. Here’s their website should you wish to book flights with them.


Airport Meet and Greet

‘Marhaba’ or ‘Welcome’ in Arabic is an exclusive meet and greet service that assists you on arrival / departure at Dubai International Airport. From speedy clearance through arrivals or departures, to helping with transfers, baggage and family travel, they provide a swift and safe passage through the airport. Marhaba also have their own lounges, reserved for their customers. For more information or to book their service directly visit their website.



Taxis are a very popular way to get around Dubai. They are efficient, metered and reasonably-priced. Find out more here.
