FAQs - booking Middle East flights

  • How can I find great flight deals from Australia to the Middle East?

    Planning at least two months ahead is key to finding a good deal on flights to the Middle East. This will give you access to good prices on direct and one-stop itineraries. If you’re keen to save even more money, consider flights with more stops or longer layovers. If travelling to Dubai from Sydney, for example, you could secure a low-cost flight by relaxing in Manila for a day between each leg of your flight.

  • Which visa do Australian citizens need to fly to the Middle East?

    Australian travellers must have a passport with at least six months of validity and enough blank pages for the trip. Depending on the countries you visit and your length of stay, you may not need a visa. Australians may, for example, visit Israel for up to 90 days without a visa and the United Arab Emirates for up to 30 days. If you wish to visit countries like Jordan, Oman or ​​Saudi Arabia, however, you will need to arrange a visa. Be sure to check the specific entry requirements of every nation you wish to visit in the Middle East.

  • What direct flights are there to the Middle East from Australia?

    If you’re looking for direct flights to the Middle East, focus your search on Australian and Middle Eastern airlines. If you're heading to the UAE, for example, Qantas and Emirates offer direct flights from Melbourne and Sydney to Dubai, while Etihad offers direct flights to Abu Dhabi. Similarly, if you’ll be visiting Doha, Qatar Airways offers direct flights from major Australian hubs like Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane.

  • Which airlines offer shorter flight times between Australia and the Middle East?

    If you’re travelling from Australia to Jordan, Lebanon, or another country to which direct flights are not available, you can still find short, one-stop itineraries with carriers like Qatar Airways, Emirates and Qantas. Flights with Qatar Airways from Sydney to Amman Airport, for example, can come with one quick stop of just over an hour.

  • How long is the flight to Middle East?

    An average direct flight from Australia to Middle East takes 23h 52m, covering a distance of 19938 km. The most popular route is Sydney - Dubai with an average flight time of 14h 10m.

Top tips for finding cheap flights to Middle East

  • Enter your preferred departure airport and travel dates into the search form above to unlock the latest Middle East flight deals.
  • If you’re planning on exploring a number of countries on your visit to the Middle East, you’ll find better flight deals by starting in major international hubs like the United Arab Emirates and Qatar.
  • If Mecca is on your itinerary, a close and convenient airport is Jeddah’s King Abdulaziz International Airport (JED). You will find one- and two-stop itineraries from major Australian cities to Jeddah. Alternatively, you may wish to fly into Saudi Arabia’s main hub, King Khalid International Airport (RUH), and spend some time in the capital of Riyadh.
  • If you’ve been visiting all the Ancient Wonders of the World and Petra is next on your list, consider flying into Aqaba’s King Hussein International Airport (AQJ) rather than Jordan’s main Queen Alia International Airport (AMM).
  • For visiting smaller Middle Eastern nations like Bahrain and Cyprus, keep in mind that you’ll need to factor in at least one stop into your itinerary. Since you’ll be stopping anyway, consider taking the opportunity to explore cities like Dubai, Muscat or Doha.
  • Heading to Israel to explore the Old City of Jerusalem and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre? While Ben Gurion Airport (TLV) is on the outskirts of Tel Aviv, it is also less than an hour’s drive from Jerusalem, making it the ideal airport to fly into.

Didn’t like it at all. Cabin crew unfriendly. Very bad experience.

Didn’t like it at all. Cabin crew unfriendly. Very bad experience.

Flight from Dubai to Zagreb very bad cabin crew. Bad food

Absolutely terrible delays for 3 hours changed seats after we paid an upgrade on both legs. It appears it’s up to us to request a refund after they down graded our seat. Never again !!

Good but needs to improve cleanliness Coffee serve cold Needs to raise standard serving food Otherwise good

Seat and leg space is much better than the Qatar airline. The crew I would like to say is not meeting the requirements of emirates airlines cause it almost 20 years I am flying with emirates this time I really feel that crew is not behaving well someone asked for water waited more than 30 minutes and there are more incidents in this flight.

Superb experience. I hope they bring back the fast track option at Heathrow immigration.

Newly reconfigured 380 I assume. Has a new ife with usb c ports and Bluetooth connections

Inexperienced e crew, no personal greeting for gold member, not the same emirates service that I know. I take this flight almost weekly

The individual attention the crew gives to passengers is commendable and I find them positively helpful.

More space all around is practically essential on long international fights, and Emirates definitely delivers. But food selection and taste was only average. Otherwise, the flight was smooth and the cabin crew service was fine.

Wuhan - Dubai. Old plane: 1. Only USB charger. No power outlet to plug in.. 2. Super narrow seat layout 3. Toilet cover consistently fell down and hit my back when sitting on it.. :( 4. Entertainment system touch screen not sensitive, and need to press hard or use finger tips to hit. Crew were very nice and accommodating though.

1. I got very poor check in experience with the counter lady . This is the first airline I ever experienced that no combine check in weight allow . Even we have 4 of us but weight counter by piece . So we wasted lot of time argue and repack . This is super crazy 2. Next I left my Samsung tablet on the plane . And I started to escalate and finally spoke to southern airline lost and found in Malaysia and the amazing answer she give is : system nothing found and please try to call southern airline in china 🧐 . I have been flying many other airlines but this is my first encounterment with such irresponsible airline response and no empathy given to customer . My feeling is nobody bother whether how customer like me feel and I’m just too small for the management to take note .

During flight, some passengers perform stomping leg exercises which disturb the comfort (I.e. sleep) of other passengers.

No good but was short flight. Both of our China Southern flights were on time. No surprises.

The flight was okay it was the kayak customer service that was poor, I have been trying to change my name on my flight ticket 3 days before my flight and nothing got done about it even tho I messaged so many times and phoned, all I got in return was that is was being processed and still to this day nothing has been done about it, I think it’s disgusting and un needed stress to the trip.

The food was perfect. The boarding process is a bit long. Given the late boarding time, I felt very tired by the time I was seated.

Quality flight from start to finish. Customer service is evidently very important to this company. The staff really exceeded expectations.

Traveling with the Chinese airlines , their service superior to the US Airlines , they are much more friendly and the seats are comfortable , In the past I flew with United , now ,United Airline will become history for me .

Pros: "see SH to GZ prior flight. The same."
Cons: "Same problems. Get KFC or McDonalds to cater. No one enjoys the airline's food which I suspect is prepared on a very small budget. Even a sandwich with a pre-packaged drink would elevate the foodservice."
Pros: "No..no redeeming features.."
Cons: "Coffee was the worst I've ever had. The 2+1 powdered mil and coffee stick. Truly awful. But i suppose there aren't many people on the flight who would order coffee..I would even pay extra for a coffee if they had a quality option. Food is comparable to a school canteen. I would probably pay 20rmb for this in Shanghai. Frozen butter for the half-frozen bread. They really couldn't do worse..."

It was good no problems made it on time for the next flight overseas!

they give hard time at checking, they not allow computer bag or purse

I found it weird that the quality of the flight different from Australia to Doha than the Doha to Berlin leg. The quality of the toiletries pack (was in a box from Australia) and then a proper bag from Doha. The biggest variation was the inflight entertainment, which had a significantly shorter amount of content compared to the Doha flight. My QSuite seat was also broken and did not recline all the way flat. Wasn’t the best and I wouldn’t be happy if I’d paid cash for the flight.

They shld provide food. Between food they are giving 10 hours gap which is toooo much

From home to the airport, you must mention the terminal ready.

Food and entertainment was very very bad. Also, Doha airport is very bad. Entertainment was same for last 1 month....no change. Old movies. Food quality was sub par.

Asian Veng meal have Non Veg items which is not ok. Pure veg meals option are too less and they have inclusion of Vedgan and Lactos etc... which is taste less

Overall good but staff in the place looked extremely tired after 8hrs in 14 hrs journey and then service was cut short and response time for calls increased in later part of flight. Food was ok not astonishing

Very very bad.. more than 48 hr I didn’t received my baggage yet

The 2nd flight from Doha to Mumbai was not of international level expected while booking with Qatar

Qantas are unable to service and unfit for purpose, they cannot transport Australians on time to overseas destinations. On top of the inflated ticketing, the Sydney flight to Santiago was impacted because the plane was delayed arriving and then further bungling by Qantas admitting the ground new ground crew in charge of cleaning were not trained. The impact on passengers with connecting flights was tremendous and long ques of frustrated passengers waiting for rescheduling. **Qantas has become the Australian Spirit of disappointment**

The staff we fantastic and seemed to work very well with each other

Business lounge in Melbourne mediocre. Look at Emirates or Qatar, Qantas! Great friendly crew. Food was good but Emirates is a level above. Business seat good. But can’t compare to Qatar. Main reason for booking Qantas is loyalty and terrific connection via Perth to LHR.

I was pleasantly surprised with my flight to LA with Qantas. Although seats were not the roomies, service was excellent.

The service and smooth landing. Food was delicious and the staff was friendly. We arrived earlier than scheduled.

Wonderful crew, good food. Absolutely loved the wine spritz and wish I could buy it!

Don’t like last minute airline change. Not able to choose seat earlier.

It's only a short trip from Sydney to Melbourne, which i have done many times. The trip met my expectations

I really appreciated the fact that when I checked my bags at the Quantas counter after arriving from an international flight an hour early, the agent noticed I had a very long layover. He then found an earlier flight that allowed me to get to Cairns several hours earlier than I planned. That was amazing because I had already traveled over 20 hours and wasn’t looking forward to such a long layover. It allowed me to see my daughter and grandchildren much earlier (it had been two years since I visited last).

Qantas cancelled my flight for no good reason and rebooked me into a middle seat.

1st time with. Etihad Airways and it was amazing from check in to crew. Great flight.

Good range of movies but lacking decent tv shows. Wifi was really expensive on this flight, considering flights under 7 hours have a $9.99 USD charge for streaming, to jump up to $24.99 for a 7 hour 40 flight seemed a little bit of a rip off. Staff are inattentive, and really need to improve on the customer experience. The new airport is fantastic, as is the new lounge, a huge upgrade from the old airport and lounge!

Eine Toilette der Business Class war gesperrt und somit nicht benutzbar.

I WOULD ADVISE NOT TO BOOK YOUR FLIGHT ON KAYAK. THEY SHOW BETTER FARES AND AFTER I BOOKED MINE, I FIND OUT THAT IT DID NOT INCLUDE LUGGAGE. i HAD TO PAY $800 TO CHECK IN MY BAGS.

Etihad broke my suitcase Also over charged me for luggage

Very unfriendly team. It was very difficult to get a cup of coffee. Legroom was extremely small. Old, dilapidated plane.

Ripped off and broken seats in Business class. Seats stink and need to request the staff for additional bedsheets. Crew if very friendly though

Food was very good. Again tray could use a non-skid mat. I had a regular seat - comfortable - able to sleep undisturbed. Boarding was uneventful.

Boarding was quick and efficient. Ground staff were pleasant and courteous. Food was tasty, portions were good for me. Food containers kept slipping on the tray. Tray would look better with an anti-skid tray mat. I had the bulkhead seat which was very uncomfortable for couple of reasons. Aircraft is designed with no throughput to move across aisle to aisle. Passengers kept jumping over my legs to get from one side to the other to use the toilet. Secondly I had a mother and 9 month baby next to me. Mom had to hold baby for 12 hours in her lap as he did not fit into the bassinet. Half the baby was on my lap during the flight. Aircraft temperature was very cold - light attendant said it was the central cooling and nothing could be done about it. Movie selection was very poor old and outdated.
