When will we fly directly to Dubai from Gdańsk?

Recently, thanks to an article on, a discussion about direct air connections from Gdańsk to Dubai has reignited, which is an important point in the development strategy of the Gdańsk airport.

The president of the Gdańsk airport, Mr. Tomasz Kloskowski, has been actively striving to expand the network of connections with strategic destinations for years.

These include not only prestigious British Airways flights to London Heathrow or connections to Paris to Charles de Gaulle Airport, but also low-cost direct flights to the United Arab Emirates, and in particular to Dubai.

The latter destination has been enjoying ever-increasing interest for years, being a symbol of luxury and modernity, but also, as we know, it is an excellent tourist destination and an almost ideal transit point when thinking about flights to Asia, the Middle East and Australia.

Additionally, there has been a lot of talk about talks with Turkish Airlines, which would open up new opportunities on the Polish-Turkish communication axis. However, the implementation of these plans encounters regulatory obstacles related to the Polish-Turkish aviation agreement of 1967, which adds additional complexity to the negotiation process.

Despite these challenges, President Kloskowski and his team do not stop trying to ensure that Gdańsk gains a new, important route on the map of global air connections, which would further open the region to the world.

When will we fly to the Arabian Peninsula from Gdańsk?

Today, more than ever, we are close to the possibility of purchasing tickets for direct flights from Gdańsk to the Arabian Peninsula. The Gdańsk Airport, under the management of Tomasz Kloskowski, is intensively negotiating with several airlines.

Although the details are still unknown, there is a real prospect of launching these connections in the near future, possible options are the winter schedule of this year or the summer schedule of next year.

Discussions with airlines indicate potential destinations such as Sharjah, Dubai and Abu Dhabi, each of which offers unique opportunities for travelers from Gdańsk. The development of this connection would be a significant step for the airport, highlighting its growing role in the international aviation arena.

As a user of the forum, we have been talking for years about the possibilities, advantages and hopes related to such a connection, emphasizing its importance for the development of regional and international tourist and business traffic.

Why are direct flights from Gdańsk to Dubai so important?

Direct flights from Gdansk to Dubai are crucial from many perspectives. Firstly, they increase the accessibility and comfort of travel, eliminating the need for transfers and shortening travel time. This makes traveling more attractive, especially for tourists and businessmen looking for efficient and convenient options.

Secondly, direct flights to Dubai can significantly increase the number of tourists visiting the Tricity, contributing to the growth of the local economy. In the case of low-cost flights, lower ticket prices may attract even larger groups of travelers, opening the Tricity to new markets and opportunities.

Direct connections also favor business tourism, which translates into increased income for local hotels, restaurants and other services. They increase the investment attractiveness of the region, attracting new investments.

A perfect example of this is Zakopane, which has experienced an increase in the number of tourists from the Middle East, mainly thanks to direct air connections from Krakow. Visitors from Arab countries constituted a significant percentage of hotel guests, and their presence was noticeable without special promotional campaigns in the region.

This trend was fueled by positive feedback and posts on social media. These tourists showed interest in local culture and attractions, which encouraged some restaurants to introduce special menus tailored to their needs.
