With winter lingering on, the idea of a touch of sunshine has never sounded more appealing, especially to far-flung corners of the globe such as Dubai.
Securing cheap holidays, especially on long-haul flights can be a logistical nightmare.
Fortunately for holidaymakers, the spring flight deals are now on the horizon.
Emirates, the predominant airline in Dubai have today launched their spring holiday deals.
Stretching across the UK, the airline is offering passengers the change to fly to Dubai with prices starting from £319.
Alongside flights to Dubai, the airline is offering discounts on flights to Vietnam, Malaysia and Australia.
Between April and June, customers can secure cheap flights from a wide variety of UK airports.
An economy class return ticket to Dubai from London Gatwick or Stansted starts at £319 when flying between 3 April and 14 June.
From either Manchester Birmingham, Newcastle or Glasgow, a flight to Dubai with Emirates starts from £339 for a return trip.
However, these flights must be booked before the 9 April (next Monday).
Passengers hoping for a touch of Australian sunshine this spring are in luck as a flight from London to Perth with the airline starts at £619 for a return ticket.
Emirates are also flying from Newcastle and Birmingham from a starting cost of £639.
This price rises to £659 when flying from either Manchester or Glasgow.
Flights to Kuala Lumpur, Ho Chi Minh, Bali and Hanoi are also available in the spring sale.
This news of cheap flights comes off the back of an announcement made last year that the airline would be introducing the new UK routes in a bid to boost the UK economy.
By Flying from London Gatwick, the airline now connects passengers to over 154 destinations across the globe.
As a response to the announced made last December Laurie Berryman, Emirates Vice President, UK, said: “The introduction of the new London Stansted-Dubai route not only signifies 10 daily flights between Dubai and three different London Airports but is also welcome news to businesses based in the Stansted catchment area who, before now, travelled to central London to fly to airports with global reach.
“The additional gateway will also prove useful to the new start-ups and existing SMEs, which form a growing section of the Cambridge business community.
“We pride ourselves as an airline in connecting people and economies and the addition of the Stansted gateway is the latest on our growing network.”
Ken O’Toole, London Stansted’s Chief Executive went on to add: “We’re delighted that Emirates has recognised the strength of London Stansted’s catchment and the opportunity that our available runway capacity gives them to continue growing in the South East of England over the next decade.”
