Cheap flights to Abu Dhabi

The capital of the UAE, much of Abu Dhabi sits on an island in the Persian Gulf. With a skyline made up of gleaming towers and more cutting-edge developments than you can shake a stick at, the city is a fantastic destination for anyone interested in sunshine, shopping and skyscrapers.

When to book flights to Abu Dhabi

Surprisingly, the average temperature in the Gulf city does fluctuate fairly significantly during the year. Book your flights to Abu Dhabi from December to March and you’ll enjoy warm, manageable temperatures, clear skies and relatively low humidity. These pleasant conditions make the winter months peak season in the city.

Summertime in the UAE is hot and humid. The mercury regularly tops 40˚C and the desert sun beats down relentlessly on the city streets. Although these toasty temperatures can make sightseeing and even sunbathing a challenge, if you like the heat you should be able to find great deals on hotels and tickets to Abu Dhabi at this time of year.

For cooler temperatures and few crowds, travel to the city during the shoulder seasons. April, May, September and October can all be pleasant months in Abu Dhabi. What’s more with few other tourists flying to the Gulf state you should have many of the city’s attractions to yourself.

Abu Dhabi International Airport

Located around 19 miles east of the city centre, Abu Dhabi International is the main air hub serving the UAE capital. The airport is the base for Etihad, the country’s national carrier. This means that the majority of flights arriving and departing from the terminal are operated by Etihad and that passengers flying on a connecting Etihad services will likely change planes in Abu Dhabi.

If you do fly to Abu Dhabi with Etihad, you can take advantage of the airline’s luxury coach service. The coach takes passengers to both Dubai Travel Mall and Al Ain International Airport. Public buses, hotel shuttles and taxis are available to passengers travelling to other destinations.

Must-see attractions in Abu Dhabi

The most iconic sight in Abu Dhabi is the Sheikh Zayed Mosque. One of the largest in the world, it’s topped with 82 white domes and clad in Macedonian marble. Non-Muslims are allowed into all areas of the colossal building and guided tours are available.

If you’re a fan of Formula One, a trip to Ferrari World is a must. Home to a high speed roller coaster, a Junior GT track and a collection of classic Ferrari cars, it’s the perfect destination for an action packed day out.
