Star Alliance member Turkish Airlines has issued a great fare, selling tickets from Warsaw, Ljubljana, Budapest, and Prague to Dubai with a stop in Istanbul for as little as €318. 30 kg of luggage and the airline’s famously good board service are included in this price. You can find these flights almost all year long.
Our availability calendar highlights all possible flight dates at the lowest price. Once you’ve selected your preferred route and dates, we can either redirect you to our flight search, where you’ll be shown the cheapest online travel agency (OTA), or to Turkish Airlines’s website, where you’d pay around €20 more.
You can depart from the following cities:
- From Warsaw: €318 (~PLN 1,378)
- From Budapest: €326 (~HUF 124,491)
- From Prague: €326 (~CZK 7,934)
- From Ljubljana: €342
After flying to Istanbul, you’ll board a Boeing 787 or a Boeing 777 for the 4-hour flight to Dubai. You’ll be served free food and drinks on all flights.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?
More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:
Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.
If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward information like flight changes instead of receiving them directly from the airline. In many cases, you may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.
This especially applies to premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.
Baggage and Other Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are industry standard by now. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.
This also applies to other things like food services, insurances or priority treatment. In almost all cases, you pay less for additional amenities when booking on the airlines’ website.
Turkish Airlines issues these tickets in booking class U, one of the most unfavourable booking classes in modern-day aviation. Your earnings are limited to around 1,425 miles on Turkish Airlines’ own program, Miles&Smiles.
Information & Tips for Dubai

Thanks to Emirates, there are non-stop flights to many destinations worldwide, from Europe you can reach Dubai within 5-6 hours even with cheap flights.
The Best Time to Visit
Dubai reaches temperatures of up to 45° in summer, and even in winter, the weather is hot. The best time to travel is from November to March when temperatures are comparatively low.
From the airport to the city
A taxi from the airport to Jumeirah Beach (where many hotels are located) costs around €13 – €17. By metro, the journey to Burj Khalifa takes about 20 minutes and costs only €1.
