Airports in Dubai
The airport is three miles (5km) from Dubai city centre and 105 miles (170km) from Abu Dhabi.
Getting to the city
Dubai Metro runs two air-conditioned train lines roughly every 10 minutes from Terminals 1 and 3 to many major stops in the city. The service runs daily from 5.30am to midnight, excluding Friday mornings when service starts at 1pm. Dubai International Airport Buses and public buses leave regularly for the city centre; the bus stations are located opposite the terminals. The bus routes are extensive and may be confusing for new travellers. Tickets must be bought in advance as bus drivers do not sell tickets.
