Ukraine International Airlines is selling cheap flights to Dubai from various European countries, such as the Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Greece, the UK, France, and more. Prices start at merely €259. Only 7 kg of hand luggage are included, but booking the Standard fare (which includes 23 kg of luggage) doesn’t cost too much, increasing the price by roughly €50.
These flights seem to be available from November 2021 through May 2022, except during the winter break. Also, Ukraine International doesn’t fly to Dubai on Mondays, and you can’t fly back from Dubai on Mondays, Tuesdays, or Thursdays.
You can fly from the following cities:
- Prague: €259 (~CZK 6,600)
- Munich: €261
- Rome: €284
- Amsterdam: €287
- Vilnius: €288
- Athens: €298
- London: €300 (~£254)
- Paris: €302
You would first fly to Kyiv, from where you’d fly roughly 5 hours to Dubai. Both flights are usually operated using a Boeing 737.
We expect further shakeups in the airline industry over the following months. Some services might be cancelled, aircraft changed or downgraded. The schedule we describe may very well change.
Search & Book
According to the fare rules, tickets are on sale for flights without a specific travel period. The fare has no expiration date and can thus be withdrawn anytime. Furthermore, your stay cannot exceed 3 months. One free stopover in Kyiv is permitted.
Google Flights shows these flights being available from November 2021 through May 2022, but not during the winter break.
Ukraine International isn’t affiliated with any airline alliance, and thus these flights will not earn you any miles. In case you need to know (for whatever reason), the tickets are issued in booking class X.
