Your journey


Begin your trip to Riyadh at Dubai’s award-winning airport, only a 15 minute journey from the city’s centre. Book a taxi, hop on a bus or park your own car at one of Terminal 2’s many short or long term parking spots. If you’d prefer to take the Dubai Metro, speed to Terminal 1 or 3 and then catch a shuttle or taxi to Terminal 2.

At flydubai, we’re continuously striving to make your journey efficient - so when it comes to checking in, there’s multiple options to choose from. Save time at the airport by checking in online, otherwise self-service kiosks and check-in counters are available at the airport. If you’re travelling with bags, you’ll just need to go to counters 1, 2 or 3 and drop them with our friendly team.

Sail through security and head into the terminal’s departure lounge, where you can enjoy free Wi-Fi, grab a coffee and enjoy food from a range of eateries before your flight takes off.

You’ll touch down at Riyadh King Khalid International Airport, which is just north of the city centre. Your transfer to the capital’s heart is only 30 minutes away – catch a taxi from one of the stands outside of the terminal building or hire a car from one of the many desks inside the airport.
