How to Get from Dubai Marina to Dubai Airport and Other Destinations
Marina is a district established in 2003. This place is very popular with tourists and is included almost in every excursion around the city. After long walks around this unique and bright district, travelers head to other parts of Dubai or go right to the air hub. For that, they use public transport, a taxi, or a transfer.
Taxi from Dubai Marina
One can order a taxi here by phone, online, or on the street. If you choose the third option, note that depending on the time they all might be booked. Taxi tariffs in the city are the following: the starting fare is around 6.8 dollars and the price for 1 km is around 0.5 dollars. So a taxi from Dubai Marina to Dubai Airport (which is about 40 km away from it) will cost around 27 dollars. And keep in mind that many drivers do not often have change, so it is better to have small bills with you.
Transfer from Dubai Marina
If you prefer planning travel in advance and want to be guaranteed to reach your destination fast, a Kiwitaxi transfer will be the best choice. Once you make an order, the price will remain fixed. Thus, a transfer to the airport for 4 passengers will cost 38 dollars. Our driver will be waiting for you in the appointed place on the time indicated by you. In case you are traveling with a group, you can choose one of our minibuses. Besides, you may order a transfer to another part of the city or some location in another city.
Public transport from Dubai Marina
You can get from Marina to the airport by metro (Red Line). This trip will take about 50 minutes and will cost around 1.5 dollars. Trains run every 10 minutes. Another way to reach the air hub is by RTA bus. It runs every 30 minutes, and its fare is around 4 dollars. The journey takes about 1 hour and 30 minutes.
Other districts of the city (Deira, Bur, etc.) are also easily accessible by metro. But keep in mind that this mode of transport does not operate at night.
Marina is one of the most prestigious districts of the city. The main peculiarity of this place is an artificial canal in the center of it which is 15 m wide and 4 km long. Along the whole of the waterfront, tourists can find lots of shops, boutiques, cafes, restaurants, and clubs. In one of the yacht clubs, one can rent a catamaran, scooter, or yacht. There are several hundred skyscrapers in this place which are especially amazing at night when they are illuminated. Also, it is famous for its large mall.
