Airlines that fly from Glasgow to Dubai

Emirates fly direct to Dubai from Glasgow-International. This is the airport's busiest international route so we recommend booking your flight as early as possible. There are currently no flights to Dubai from Glasgow-Prestwick.

Terminal Information – Departing

Glasgow-International Airport has one terminal. There's a good range of shops in the terminal, and as Dubai is outside the EU you can enjoy a duty free discount. Pick up some new electronics at Maplin, buy some luxury goods at World Duty Free, or find yourself a new outfit at The Fashion Place. You can grab some light reading for the journey in WHSmith, or get some last-minute toiletries in Boots.

If you're feeling hungry you can relax with a sit-down meal at Frankie & Benny's or The Sandpiper. Have a quick sandwich at EAT or Upper Crust, or just enjoy a coffee and a cake in Starbucks. Your little ones can run off some energy in the soft play area while you make the most of the 30 minutes free Wi-Fi. If you have quite a bit of work to finish before flying to Dubai you can check into the UpperDeck Lounge for a fee. Unlimited Wi-Fi, snacks and drinks add to the comfortable atmosphere.

Terminal Information – Arriving

Emirates flights land at Dubai-International Airport's exclusive Terminal 3. There's a taxi rank just outside: you can expect to pay about AED 52* (about £9.30) for the trip into Downtown Dubai. There are public bus stops just a short walk from the terminal building, and the Dubai Metro system serves the terminal.

Practical Information

You need a valid passport to fly from Glasgow to Dubai. Your passport needs to be valid for six months after your arrival date, even if you're just visiting for a short break. It's possible to visit Dubai if you've been to Israel and have a stamp on your passport, but you may not be permitted to work. People with British-Israeli dual nationality may be refused entry to the country. If you're a British national you will get a free 30 Day Visa upon arrival. If you want to stay for longer you can get a 30 day extension at a UAE immigration office: a fee is payable. If you're not a British national you will need to contact your local Emirati embassy. The UAE has tough restrictions on prescription drugs. If you're on medication you may need to get permission from the UAE Ministry of Health to import your drugs into the country. A full list of restricted drugs can be found online:
