DialAFlight Reveal Top Reasons to Escape to Dubai This Christmas

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Dec. 19, 2011) - Dubai is becoming an increasingly popular destination for British holidaymakers over the Christmas break. Leading travel operator DialAFlight explains their theory behind the trend, as they brace for an influx of bookings from families looking for cheap flights to Dubai for the festive season.

Particularly at this time of year, Dubai has a host of cultural and sporting events that can add that certain extra flavour to a joyous Christmas holiday.

The Gulf Oil Super Sixes is the biggest corporate cricketing event in Dubai. Held over fifteen days at the Dubai Sports City Cricket Stadium, local quarter finalists play alongside cricket legends for the Gulf Oil Super Sixes Cup, with the winning team being awarded AED 50,000. The games are short, sharp, punchy and exciting. There is no admission fee for this event.

For the creative and film loving, the Dubai International Film festival is the proverbial spearhead of Arab cinema in the region. Tickets are often limited and in high demand, so booking ahead in order to secure seats at the gala and premieres is recommended. Fans of the festival can buy tickets over the phone, at selected box offices, or online.

A spokesperson for DialAFlight said today:

"Events and attractions aside, British tourists fly to Dubai for the simple motive of change. Even in the winter months, Dubai offers a climate substantially warmer than the United Kingdom, with an average monthly temperature of 26 centigrade and 9 hours of sunshine a day. As Christmas is not widely celebrated in Dubai, tourists can escape the recurring stress and rush that occurs in the UK, whilst still being able to enjoy the festivities in the UAE, a widely English-speaking region."
