Passengers going on and returning from holidays to Dubai this week have been lucky enough not to be disrupted by the weather.

Arctic conditions have hit the UK of late, while many places in Europe have seen strong winds and torrential rain.

Despite this, a spokesperson for Dubai International Airport said services are running as normal from Europe.

Emirates Airlines and Air France also both reported that no disruption to flights is expected.

This is likely to be good news for people who have been visiting Dubai for the annual shopping festival, which began on January 15th and will run until this Sunday (February 15th).

Earlier this month, Dubai was named best destination for the Middle East and Africa at the recent Irish Travel Trade News Awards.

This shows its continuing popularity as both a destination for business travellers and holidaymakers alike, thanks to its cityscape on the one hand and idyllic beaches on the other.
