Saudia: Milan to Dubai for €1,114 in Business Class

Saudia Business Class

SkyTeam member Saudia is currently selling cheap business-class tickets from Milan to Dubai. Prices start as low as €1,114 for a round trip with good flight times and around 5-6 hours in lie-flat seats in each direction. The availability is fantastic all year long.

Our calendar displays all available dates for trips of 3-15 days with good flight times. You can either book via Skyscanner for around €1,115 or pay roughly €70 more on Saudia’s website.

If you don’t mind (very) long layovers, sometimes even having to spend a night in Saudi Arabia, you can also fly to Doha for €1,250 or Abu Dhabi for €1,328. But make sure you check Saudi Arabia’s transit visa requirements first. Overall, we don’t really recommend these options, unless you’re dead set on flying to e.g. Qatar instead of Dubai.

In Milan, you will board a Saudia A330 and fly 5 hours to Jeddah, seated in lie-flat seats. From there, an Airbus A320 family plane will fly you to Dubai. On these 3-hour flights, you won’t have lie-flat seats, but rather seats that resemble a premium economy. The way back is similar, only that you’ll fly via Ryadh. The first flight then takes under 2 hours, while the lie-flat flight takes 6 hours.

By the way, if Milan is not a good starting point for you, one of these deals may be a better option:
