Non-stop from BER to Dubai

Jet off to the city of superlatives: Starting now, you can fly non-stop to Dubai from BER. Initially, the United Arab Emirates route will be flown twice a week by Latvian airline SmartLynx Airlines as part of a joint venture with package tour operator FTI. The airline will fly to the Persoan Gulf metropolis every Monday and Thursday. A third weekly connection will be added for Saturdays, starting on December 18, 2021, just in time for Christmas. Now, for the first time since March 2020, the capital region is once again connected non-stop with the United Arab Emirates. The new connection is another step towards a return to normal air traffic.

Flight availability

The route to the heart of the Middle East will be flown by an Airbus A321. Flights from BER take off late in the evening with a flight time of around 6.5 hours. That means travellers can start their first full day of vacation as soon as they arrive. Departures leave BER at 10 p.m. and arrive at Dubai International Airport (DXB) early in morning at 6.15 a.m. local time. Return flights leave at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesdays and Fridays from Dubai Airport and arrive at BER at 12:45 p.m.

Flights can also be booked individually or as flight-only via FTI Touristik, as well as through the sites of popular online travel agencies and platforms. XL seats can also be booked for an additional fee, as well as available centre seats, and on-board menus, snacks and drinks.

Dubai and EXPO 2020

The new route begins right on time for EXPO 2020, which had to be postponed for a year due to the pandemic and will provide exciting insights into the issues of sustainability and mobility over the next six months under the motto “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future”. The EXPO site is also well connected to the airport.
