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.
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.
The holiday airline SmartLynx Airlines is one of the leading charter and ACMI providers in Europe. Founded in 1992 as LatCharter, the Latvian airline has been operating under its current name since 2008 and has a fleet of 15 Airbus A320s, seven Airbus A321s and five Airbus A330s.
