Dubai International Airport is a key transit point for travellers flying between Africa and Europe, on the one hand, and the Asia Pacific, on the other.

With a population of 2.106 million people, Dubai is an increasingly popular travel destination in its own right.

Attractions include the Palm, a dramatic man-made island created in the shape of a dessert palm tree.

There is fantastic shopping, excellent leisure facilities, varied nightlife, and ultra-modern skyscrapers, including Burj Khalifa, a 830 metre tall tower than looks like a massive sailboat anchored in the sea.

Two other gulf airlines connect Africa and Europe with the Asia Pacific through their near-by hubs in the UAE.

Etihad Airway maintains a hub at Abu Dhabi International Airport. Qatar Airways maintains a hub at Hamad International Airport in Doha.
