Cheap Flights from New York to Dubai
You'll find flying from New York to Dubai is an eye-opening cultural experience.
Options for Flying Out of New York
There are three major airports serving the NYC metropolitan area: John F. Kennedy (JFK), La Guardia (LGA), and Newark (EWR). Currently, there are no direct flights from New York to Dubai, but Emirates Airline will begin offering non-stop service to Dubai from JFK and Newark in November 2017. Otherwise, plan on your flight from New York to Dubai to have at least one stop.
John F. Kennedy International Airport is in Jamaica, Queens, 12 miles from Manhattan. At JFK, Emirates flies out of Terminal 4.
La Guardia is also located in Queens, and is about nine miles from Manhattan. La Guardia has four terminals. If you fly from La Guardia, you will need a connecting flight to get to Dubai.
Newark Liberty International Airport is in Newark, New Jersey, about 16 miles from Manhattan. Newark has three terminals. If you're flying Emirates, you'll depart from level 3 of terminal B.
Because flying from New York to Dubai is an international flight, you'll need to get to the airport at least three hours before your scheduled take-off time. You must have a passport that has been valid for at least six months. If your visit will be less than one month, you don't need a visa.
Arriving in Dubai
Dubai International Airport (DXB) is the main airport in Dubai. It is one of the busiest airports in the world. If you've flown Emirates, you'll fly into terminal 3. All other international flights use terminal 1. If you need to get between terminals, free 24-hour shuttles are available.
For ground transportation, the Metro train is a popular option. Trains run every 10 minutes from 5:50 am until midnight from terminals 1 and 3, although there is no service on Fridays until 1 pm. Taxis in Dubai are cream-colored. If you'd be more comfortable with a female taxi driver, look for a cab with pink trim. Buses leave from terminals 1,2, and 3. You can rent a car in Dubai, but be aware that traffic is crazy, and many auto accidents and fatalities occur each year.
The United Arab Emirates is a Muslim country. The culture of Dubai is likely different from what you're used to in New York. It's a good idea to dress modestly in public spaces, apart from your hotel. Alcohol is not served outside of hotels and clubs. Public displays of affection, including kissing and holding hands, are not allowed.
