When to book your Dubai airfare
Tickets to Dubai are popular throughout the year thanks to its warm weather and world-class shopping. However, you'll find tickets are especially in demand during the high season months of November to April when the weather is at its best. During the winter, there are also plenty of events that draw in tourists. Shoulder season is from May to June and September to October. Low season is from July to August; tourists try to avoid Dubai during the summer because it can get extremely hot and humid. It rarely rains in Dubai; what little rain there is falls during the winter.
