What You Can Expect

Helicopter Flight in Dubai

See Dubai's impressive skyline from a helicopter!

Choose from a 15-minute or 25-minute Dubai helicopter tour when you book. Then, after a pickup from your central Dubai hotel, travel to the Atlantis The Palm hotel on the Palm Jumeirah to arrive at least 45 minutes before your flight start time.

Check in at the helipad and settle into the comfortable lounge. Sip on a complimentary soda, tea or coffee as you listen to a safety briefing, and when the time comes, meet your experienced pilot. 

Hop inside the state-of-the-art helicopter and sit next to the pilot or in the row of four seats behind. Then, enjoy the views as your helicopter whirrs skyward and flies high above Dubai and the Persian Gulf.

Soar over the coastline and drink in the sight of the Palm Jumeirah, the incredible Burj Khalifa and the Burj Al-Arab hotel.

Hover above the golden beaches and azure waters of the gulf, and have your camera poised as your pilot points out particular high-rises and attractions.

Then, keep your camera ready as you head out over the sea to The World, the stunning man-made archipelago shaped to resemble a world map.

Gaze down at the 300 or so sandy islets below and identify the different countries and continents, such as Lebanon and Greenland, as 
your pilot tells you about their private and hotelier owners.

After your 15-minute flight, touch back down at the Atlantis helipad and end your helicopter tour with a hotel drop-off. 

Alternatively, if you’ve upgraded to a 25-minute flight, enjoy an extra 10 minutes in the air. Fly over other areas of Dubai for bird’s-eye views of more of the city’s attractions. Then, return to the helipad and end your tour with a drop-off at your hotel.

Amazing trip booked for my husband's 50th birthday. It was very well organised and health and safety conscious.

From start to finish this is a flight to remember. The pilot was very welcoming and engaging.

The flight itself was very smooth and provided such a perfect view of the palm, Burj Khalifa, world islands etc. on a very clear day.

The staff took lots of photos of us boarding and disembarking from the flight, which was very useful.

Would highly recommend to anyone!
