What to Expect
After pickup at your central Dubai hotel, you’ll travel to the Atlantis hotel on the Palm Jumeirah to arrive before your flight departure. Check in at the helipad and enjoy a soda, tea, or coffee as you meet your pilot and get a safety briefing. Then, settle into the state-of-the-art helicopter, either next to the pilot or in one of the four seats behind, and take to the skies. Fly over the Palm Jumeirah, and admire the Burj Khalifa and Burj Al-Arab as your pilot points out the landmarks. Then trace the coastline and soar above the map-shaped archipelago known as the World. After about 15 minutes of flying, you’ll touch down at the Atlantis and end your experience with hotel drop-off. Alternatively, if you’ve chosen a 25-minute flight, hover over other areas of Dubai before landing at the helipad and finishing with a transfer to your hotel.

Amazing view, but the tranfer did not pick me up from hotel. So I took a taxi to go there. And for the adress, I had to call them. It was a little bit stressy for me.

First time flying in a helicopter and what better place to do it than Dubai? The tour company was prompt in confirming hotel pickup, and there were no problems getting to the Atlantis helipad. You're not allowed to take pictures on the helipad itself, but...More
