You can’t miss this opportunity as the air trip is the source of unforgettable impressions. We are inviting you to take an incredible air journey around Dubai. It’s a perfect alternative to tiring walks in the megalopolis. An air route will show you a new Dubai!
Dubai is the city of futuristic skyscrapers and modern buildings surrounded by human-made islands. You can admire the grandeur of the second biggest emirate only from a height, and a window of a helicopter will suit perfectly for that.
The air tours taking off from Atlantis the Palm Jumeirah Island (Helicopter Tour Helipad) - we will have a special permission to enter the island as only the guests of the Atlantis Hotel can freely go there. Also there is helipad at Jumeirah Dubai Police Academy (the Helidubai Jumeirah Heliport).
Then we are going to check in (you need to have your passport with you), go through instructions and weighing. A helicopter can accommodate up to 6 passengers with total weight of 450 kg, so an average weight is 85 kg (during COVID-19 up to 4 passengers).
And finally, we are in the helicopter, putting on the headphones and getting ready for the flight. Taking off! A magnificent panoramic view of Dubai with its skyscrapers and towers is opening up. You will see that Dubai is a megalopolis in the middle of the desert, an impressive combination of super modern roads and overpasses, tall buildings and luxurious villas. We are going to fly over the most recognized Atlantis Hotel, Jumeirah Embankment.
We are going to see in details a real wonder of the world - the Palm Islands and the World archipelago created by a human. We are also going to see the sea port which lies in the basis of economic development of the region. And of course, you won’t be able to take your eyes off the landmarks of the city - the Burj Arab Hotel in the shape of a sail and Burj Khalifa Tower.
