Both Emirates Airlines and Qantas Airways fly direct from these airports, but if you are flying from anywhere else or with any other airline you will have at least one stopover in your trip.
- A large number of bus lines serve Dubai International Airport and can take you to different locations in the city. You can board buses from outside Terminals 1, 2 and 3, however please note that you must purchase a NOL card beforehand as you can’t pay cash on board.

If you can’t find one easily, head to the Information Zone or ask a ‘May I Help You’ staff member for directions. For slightly older children there is a play area in Terminal 3, located close to Gates B7 and B8.
- Luggage storage is available in the Arrivals area of Terminals 1 and 3, with the cost depending on the bag’s size. Luggage wrapping is also available in all terminals but does vary from location to location.
- If you need some peace and quiet after your flight to Dubai, you can use one of the multiple lounges available to all passengers. Marhaba Lounges are located in all three terminals; you can pay at the door, buy a pre-paid pass or access them using a lounge membership card. There are also well-ventilated smoking lounges in all three terminals.

We attempt to get accurate prices, however, prices are not guaranteed.
We’re not the seller.
At KAYAK we don’t set the prices, so it’s not possible for us to guarantee what other companies are selling.
We compile tonnes of data for you
Our service lets you quickly and easily compare results from hundreds of travel sites at once. In this sense, KAYAK is a search engine and we can't guarantee prices we find.
Why aren’t prices accurate 100% of the time?
Prices on airline seats, hotel rooms and car hires can change frequently. Several people may also be trying to buy the same travel option simultaneously. As a result, you may find, on occasion, that certain prices are no longer available.
