How to fly to Dubai for £291 return

Every so often, Jack Sheldon from Jack’s Flight Club selects a flight deal from the UK for Independent readers that you can’t afford to miss. This week: return flights to Dubai for £291.

Although there’s a lot of competition on routes to Dubai from London, getting a good price to fly from regional airports is typically a lot tougher.

That isn’t the case right now though – Emirates is having a rare sale on its routes to Dubai, from airports in Scotland, northern England and the Midlands.

How to book

Head to Google Flights and enter your preferred departure airport along with Dubai as the destination. You may want to add a “Emirates” filter to the airlines to help find the dates included in this deal.

Use Google Flights’ handy calendar tool to help you highlight the best travel dates (they’ll show up in green).

You can book directly with the airline for slighly more flexibility to make changes later (ie lower date/time change fees) or, to save an additional £30 or so, head over to Skyscanner, re-enter your itinerary, and book with the online travel agent offering the lowest fares.

Pro tip

Grabbing a meal in Dubai is notoriously expensive. If you’re after something both cheap and delicious, check out the Al Souq Al Kabeer neighbourhood in the old town for some South Asian restaurants. Pak Liyari does a top no-frills biryani.
