We have been flying across the Emirates for a decade and have seen some of the best aerial photos of Dubai during this time. We have looked through our collection and selected the very best - from the Burj Khalifa, Palm Jumeirah, World Islands and Burj Al Arab. Take a look through and see if you can recognise world-famous icons.
Here are some of the best aerial photos of Dubai from our scenic flights:
Burj Al Arab: This iconic hotel designed in the shape of a sail is a standout subject for pictures capturing the beautiful Jumeirah coastline. We love how the Burj is framed in this image!
Burj Khalifa: Do you see the way the wing tip 'touches' the world’s tallest tower in the heart of Dubai? This is a very cool shot of the Downtown area from the sky.
Dubai Water Canal: Winding through Business Bay, the water canal is a common passage for water taxis, ferries and private charters. The canal is lined with walkways so you can also explore it from the ground.
World Islands: Lying 4 km offshore the only way to appreciate this ambitious project is from the sky! Stretching across 9 km this project is still in progress. This is shot from up front right next to the pilot!
Emirates Hills: This neatly organised neighbourhood of villas, lakes and golf links just off the back of Dubai Marina looks gorgeous when you’re 1500 ft. high.
Sheik Zayed Road: Dubai’s main highway lined with skyscrapers makes for a majestic sight from the air.
Dubai Frame: Perfectly positioned to be a window between old and new Dubai, this new attraction is sure to be a hit with locals and visitors.
Ain Dubai: Standing tall in Bluewaters Islands the Ain Dubai is set to be the world’s tallest observation wheel at 210 metres high when completed in 2018.
We hope our best aerial photos of Dubai have inspired you to take a flight with us.
