Fly to Abu Dhabi for winter sun in less than seven hours

24th June 2019

A winter sun holiday in Abu Dhabi is an inspired idea for families this year. Direct flights from London, Manchester and Dublin to the UAE capital take just under seven hours; jet lag is not an issue and, on the all-important subject of sunshine, temperatures around 25˚ between November and February are perfect for the city’s beautiful beaches, but never too hot for kids.

Apart from guaranteeing warm winter weather without long and ultra-long haul flights, Abu Dhabi is also the most cultured and historic emirate, and the one with a noticeably laid-back atmosphere, along with a reputation for being remarkably family-friendly and thoroughly entertaining.

In other good news, Abu Dhabi has some of the world’s finest new architecture, the only Louvre Museum outside France, and an incredible choice of fabulous luxury resorts dedicated to delighting kids, pampering parents and creating unforgettable family holiday experiences.

Here’s what else Abu Dhabi tourist board think will convince you to avoid the southern hemisphere this winter and head to their home emirate instead.
