FlyDubai is now flying to Finland on the daily, and that's our festive travel plans sorted
Don’t get us wrong, we love it here in Dubai. The sunshine, the sandy beaches, the beautiful melting pot of fascinating people. Dubai is certainly hard to hate on. But there is one teeny-weeny thing that leaves us desperate to jet away – we miss the snow.
What we’re aching for is a Christmas card-esque setting for the festive season.
Which is why we’re delighted that the excellent FlyDubai has added Helsinki to its wide range of daily destinations. In fact, they’re the only carrier to operate flights to Finland from the UAE all year round.
You can either stay and explore the wonderful city of Helsinki or venture out a little further to the festive wonderment of Lapland. Yes, even adults will be grinning from ear to ear in the home of Chris Cringle. You’ll also get a chance to see the Northern Lights in all their splendour.
Basically, what we’re saying is that FlyDubai’s timely new route means that you can really make the most of the festive season.
And with prices starting from AED1,545 including taxes, you’re kind of out of excuses not to plan a visit.
And if relaxation is the aim of the game, treat yourself to tickets in the Business Cabin (from AED7,550), recline into the flatbed seats featured in FlyDubai’s luxe new aircraft and wake up in a winter wonderland. It’s time to buy some warmer clothes....
