Helicopter flight over Dubai – what do I need to know ?

When you search the Internet, you will get a lot of results. In this context, it is important to know that there are currently only 2 operators in Dubai that offer helicopter tours.

The pure flight time and the exact flight route are decisive when choosing your sightseeing flight. A helicopter flight is not that cheap, each additional flight minute costs more money accordingly.

Up to 5 passengers take a seat in a helicopter. If there are only two of you, you can book the “sharing option“. This means that there may be 3 other people flying with you. But you don’t have to worry about that. The organizer guarantees the flight.

How much is a helicopter flight to Dubai ?

Up

The price for a helicopter flight Dubai is calculated exclusively according to the flight time in minutes. If the sharing option is booked, it does not matter whether 1 or 5 participants are flying in the same helicopter – the price is set per person and the helicopter is shared.

If the helicopter is booked “privately”, there is a fixed price for the entire helicopter, regardless of how many participants fly (by helicopter).

Helicopter flight Dubai – where and how do I book the flight ?

Up

Your helicopter flight over Dubai can be booked online directly with us in Dubai with just one click. First, find out all the details on the page with the detailed description of the tour.

  1. Select your heli flight: duration and if you prefer a ‘sharing’ or ‘private’ flight
  2. Enter date, number of participants as well as name, telephone number, and email address

Please wait for our message. We will give you several flight times to choose from, if available. After your approval, the confirmation will be issued. Then you have time to pay for the flight up to 4 – 6 weeks before departure.

When should I book the Dubai helicopter flight ?

In your own interest, please book the helicopter flight as early as possible before your stay in Dubai. In summer you can already book for winter. No risk! You can cancel in writing by email at any time up to 48 hours before the start of the helicopter flight. In any case, you don’t pay directly when booking.

Helicopter sightseeing flights Dubai are booked worldwide. Due to low booking capacities (there are not so many options for sightseeing flights), short-term reservations can lead to bottlenecks and your desired date is no longer available or only available to a limited extent.

Your seat in the Helicopter Dubai

The seat in the helicopter is determined by the pilot. This is necessary for reasons of safety on board. The main reason is the correct weight distribution of the passengers during the flight. Therefore, a seat reservation cannot be made in advance when booking.

The two seats in the back row (middle) are also a very good choice, as you can look outside on both the left and right. The advantage of this variant is that you can also enjoy an excellent view to the front.

We are not aware of any case in which a passenger has ever felt disadvantaged because of the choice of seat.

First and foremost, the flight route decides whether the helicopter flight will be a highlight of your stay in Dubai. When planning your event, pay attention to (the description of the flight on a website) where the helicopter is moving in the air and relate this to the flight time. Even before the flight, every passenger has an idea of the sights he would like to see “from above”. Imagine a visual flight in your mind based on the route in combination with the flight time.

The more you know about the helicopter flight beforehand, the greater the anticipation will be. You should therefore read a long, detailed description of the helicopter flight carefully so that you know what to expect.

We offer flights with a flight time of 12, 17, 22, 30 and 40 minutes.
