Not sure if this posted before however some decent flight prices from London Gatwick to Dubai (DWC airport) which is approx 45 mins by car from Dubai International. This airport is only 20 mins to the Palm Jebel which gives an opportunity to be reasonably close to this area and hotels.There are various prices depending when you go but thought for £199 return (24/01- 01/02) its not too bad. Some later dates from Manchester pushing it up to £215. Of course still a bag to put in the hold so it will be more expensive to do that. Glasgow is £419 so quite a saving against our Northern friends.Might suit someone , somewhere !
