Flights and Cruises to the UAE just got cheaper!

Budget travel agent Thomson has announced their new flight route from Cardiff in the UK direct to Dubai!

The flights are set to begin in January and February of  2017, but people can begin booking the flights by November this year.

Now here’s the catch, the direct flight will only be serving Thomson Cruises customers, who will arrive in Dubai and then get straight on one of Thomson’s Celebration cruise ships which will begin operating in Dubai next winter.

That doesn’t mean that residents of the emirate can’t get involved too, the cruise has two itineraries that will take you to 6 destinations including Khasab and Muscat in Oman, Manama in Bahrain, Doha in Qatar, Abu Dhabi and Khor Fakkan in UAE.

Managing director for Thomson Cruises Helen Caron added: "As Dubai becomes more and more popular for winter sun and incredible excursions, we know our customers will be as excited as we are to welcome this destination to our programme.”

Flights will depart Cardiff Airport on January 23 and February 20, 2017.
