Dubai to Alicante Flights
Flying from Dubai International Airport
Flights from Dubai operate regularly and Dubai International Airport is close to the city, enabling easy access from surrounding areas. The most common mode of transport to the airport is by taxi. There is no shortage of cabs and, in particular, the cream-coloured Dubai Transport Corporation cars are widely recognised as being reliable and reasonably priced. There are also bus routes running directly from the city, and many hotels operate their own transport. The latest addition is the automated metro, which has stops across the city and was opened in 2009. For passengers who are on stopovers, there is a complimentary shuttle bus between the airport's terminals; this runs 24 hours a day.
There are three terminals at Dubai International Airport, one of which is exclusive to Emirates flights. As might be expected, in the United Arab Emirates terminal there is an extensive range of VIP services available at an additional cost that speed up the process between checking in and arriving at the lounge. The airport has a range of lounges, including two Quiet Lounges in Terminal 1, which allow passengers to rest before flights.
The airport has an extensive range of shopping and dining options, and features many global luxury brands. All tastes are catered for, from Indian cuisine to fish and chips, enabling passengers who are travelling on one of the flights Dubai offers to enjoy a relaxing meal. There is also a variety of services available, including banks, tour operators and hire car companies, should they be required.

Alicante Airport is the sixth-busiest in Spain, providing services for the Province of Alicante from a location about 5.6 miles from the south-western edge of the city. Both domestic and international flights operate through Alicante, provided by airlines such as Ryanair, Air Berlin, and easyJet.
Transportation from the Airport
Transportation into Alicante from the airport is provided by city bus and taxi. The C-6 bus to the city centre leaves the airport terminal every twenty minutes and costs €2.70. Taxi services are provided by Radio Taxi Elche, which provides service to Alicante for approximately €19, not counting any toll fees encountered along the way. The fare rises to €21 during the night on Sundays and during holidays. The official taxis can be identified by a green stripe and the city's coat of arms on the doors.
The Weather in Alicante
The weather in Alicante is typical for the Mediterranean region, with hot summers and mild winters. From November to April, the high temperature tends to average between 16°C and 20°C. During the summer months, temperatures can rise as high as 30°C. Dress should be light to moderate jackets during the winter and generally light clothing during the summer.
Things to Do in Alicante
Due to the mild winters, Alicante is comfortable year round. The best times to visit the city though, are during summer and early fall when temperatures are at their most hospitable. During the summer, visitors can enjoy the Alicante Summer Festival, which is held in July and August. The Las Hogueras de San Juan at the end of June also offers a good time for travellers, with street parties and firework displays taking place, as well as a parade. For cheaper accommodation, travellers should visit the city during winter. Flights to Alicante, as well as hotel rooms, can be reserved online using ebookers.
