Dubai’s highly-connected infrastructure – both technological and physical – makes it easy to talk to and visit friends and family from all over the world.
A global transit hub
Dubai International (DXB) is one of the busiest airports in the world and connects more than 240 destinations through 140 airlines. The city’s second airport, Dubai World Central (DWC), is also growing. With hundreds of regular and low-cost airlines to choose from, Dubai ranks as one of the top cities in the world when it comes to connectivity. Perfectly positioned as a gateway to the globe, you can reach almost anywhere in Europe, Asia and Africa in under eight hours. Not only will this make the occasional trip home quick and easy, but it also opens up some exciting and exotic holiday destinations. A mini-break in the Maldives or long weekend in Goa are both just a four hour flight away.
The city also leads in terms of mobile connectivity with free public Wi-Fi and 5G to keep in touch with your family and friends all over the globe. In addition, the emirate is well on the way to achieving its goal of becoming the world’s smartest city by 2021, with essential everyday services such as paying utilities and getting a UAE driving license all easily done online. Use apps and online platforms like UAE Pass to centralise and handle all government-related payments in a smart and convenient manner.
