The largest UAE national carrier, Emirates, is selling reasonably priced tickets for flights from London Gatwick to several cities in Australia. Admittedly, 712€ for a rountrip might not be the lowest fare that we’ve ever presented to you for a trip to Down-Under. But the fact that you’ll only have one stop on your way makes this deal very interesting. Also, one piece of checked luggage is included.
No matter which city you prefer, you will always have a short layover in Dubai before Emirates will bring you to your final destination. In most cases, Emirates will operate the Airbus A380 on all flights making this a great chance to be on board of the largest passenger aircraft before it’s being phased out.
Search & Book
According to the fare rules, this offer will be available until April 18th for flights within the following travel periods:
- April 7th through July 11th and
- August 11th through December 7th
You have to wait for at least 3 days before returning to Europe and can’t stay in Australia for longer than 12 months if you want to get this deal.
Availability is good for most routes. We recommend using Google Flights (instructions) to find the dates that suit you best. Then you can book your tickets directly on Emirates’ website or use our Travel Dealz flight search tool to get an even better price.
All tickets will be issued in booking class T. Since this is the lowest Economy Class fare, you can’t hope for too many miles. With Emirates frequent flyer program Skywards you should see a plus of around 3.000 miles (depending on your destination and tier, of course) on your account. Partner programs will reward you with 50% of the actual miles flown.
Information & Tips for United Arab Emirates
Visa & Entry
Most European citizens may enter the United Arab Emirates without a visa and with their passports only to stay there as tourists as well as for business(without work) or visiting purposes for a maximum period of 90 days within 180 days.
Best Time to Visit
In April and May, the temperatures in the UAE are around 30 °C and can even climb to just close to 40 °C. You usually don’t have to expect less than 25°C, so you can always bring your bathing suit. In June, July and August, 40°C are standard. The most pleasant travel months are December, January, and February when temperatures rarely climb above 25°C.
You should know that the United Arab Emirates is a Muslim country. This means that Ramadan, the month of fasting, is strictly celebrated. There usually are no drinks and no food during the day, at least not in public. When booking offers during this period, you should keep that in mind.
