  • How can I find cheap flights to the Middle East?

    Try to book your tickets well in advance of your travel dates, when flights are generally cheaper. When searching for flights, try to include other cities and airports near your destination, as these may be cheaper.

Finally, check low-cost airlines through KAYAK, such as Ryanair, Wizz Air and easyJet, as they tend to provide cheaper services.

    The countries that you are visiting will determine whether you need a visa. For UK citizens, the only countries where you will need to apply for a travel visa are Iran, Syria and Yemen.

Always check the relevant countries' consulate websites for current regulations.

Top tips for finding cheap flights to Middle East

  • Enter your preferred departure airport and travel dates into the search form above to unlock the latest Middle East flight deals.
  • When flying to the Middle East, be mindful that flight prices can rise significantly during the period of Ramadan. So, if you want to find cheaper flights, it’s worth checking the calendar and trying to be flexible on your travel dates; booking outside this period should save you some money.
  • If you’re travelling on a budget and looking to fly to Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates, you can find some cheaper flights from London Stansted Airport (STN) with Pegasus Airlines to Sharjah Airport (SHJ). This route usually includes one layover at Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen Airport (SAW), whilst Sharjah Airport is only about a 20min drive from Dubai International Airport (DXB).
  • For flights to Istanbul from the UK, search for flights to Istanbul Sabiha Gokcen Airport; flights to this airport are generally cheaper on average than those to Istanbul Airport (IST).
  • If you want to find cheaper flights to Qatar and nearby Bahrain, we recommend booking a flight with a layover. Direct flights can be expensive to this region, and there are some airlines, such as Turkish Airlines, Pegasus Airlines and AnadoluJet, that can provide much cheaper routes with a layover in Istanbul, from London Stansted Airport or Manchester Airport (MAN), to both Manama Bahrain Airport (BAH) and Doha International Airport (DOH).
  • If you’re planning on visiting Israel, Jordan and Lebanon in one trip, flying into Tel Aviv Ben Gurion International Airport (TLV) is a good place to start, as flying to Beirut or Amman is usually more expensive. You can find various low-cost airlines like Ryanair, Wizz Air and easyJet from airports such as London Gatwick Airport (LGW), London Luton Airport (LTN) and Manchester Airport.

Absolutely terrible delays for 3 hours changed seats after we paid an upgrade on both legs. It appears it’s up to us to request a refund after they down graded our seat. Never again !!

Absolutely terrible delays for 3 hours changed seats after we paid an upgrade on both legs. It appears it’s up to us to request a refund after they down graded our seat. Never again !!

The crew manager let the staff down by not ensuring special dietary requirements meal were coming in drips . The poor cabin crew did not stop . If organised the cabin could take a short break ..The cabin crew were AWESOME UNLIKE THIER TWO MANAGES!

They had superb boarding (started an hour before flight time). Timely pushback from them gate and an early arrival. Flight and service was very comfortable. I wanted to move my flight to an earlier one, only thing was there was no one at emirates in Heathrow to help. Had to call the call the center and pay to change. There were ample seats on the flight though

More leg room and comfortable seats at least for long flights

Very bad !! My confirmed ticket got canceled with out notifying me in hyd airport , crew didn’t help us out !! They were very rude!! They made me pay for the confirmed ticket again !! Can you please let us know how I can get the refund for the ticket I paid

Check-in counter at the airport took more than an hour of standing in queue with online checkin. And after entering the gate the flight delayed more than 30 mins.

Had the salad which tasted awfully spat it out but still got food poisoning 1 after running to toilet crew would not let me sit near toilets I was stuck in window seat

Lovely experience. I feel like travelling in Emirates.. The flights are always superb.Vegan food served was really good..

Cabin crew were not welcoming.was expecting excellent after traveling in Emirates from Houston to Dubai.

The flight was delayed in Jhb and I could have had some help in Dubai trying to get to my connecting flight to London

No separate queue for business class/platinum passengers. I had to stay in the long queue to board. I requested breakfast before landing, but the crew didn't offer, except a coffee with milk. No tea with milk was available. Had asked for cookies, but didn't receive them. The crew in the business class was not good in terms of service..

Excellent will be flying again in May with Qatar. to Botswana.

Crews are very rude and unhelpful. Cramped seats in economy. Foods are useless

The 2nd flight from Doha to Mumbai was not of international level expected while booking with Qatar

They ran out of some of the popular food items. 😞

The overall experience for the price we paid was mediocre. Nothing outstanding! Check in process was standard. Flight attendants could have been more well mannered. I found it rude when the attendant nudged me with the snack box to grab my attention when not looking. She could have said ,’excuse me’ instead. My son’s in flight entertainment was not working. The food was not great either. The snack options were not so great with kids in mind. Overall, might not travel qatar again.

Lovely aircraft and I flight entertainment. Good leg room. Full flight crew struggled a bit

You're like a poor man's Emirates Airlines. The Asian vegetarian food was awful. The entertainment selection was very limited and not contemporary at all. The seats were cramped. There was no plug for charging my phone (I refuse to plug into a USB port - A security risk). The plane itself was aged.

I liked the food and services provided. I think the seating should be updated cause it’s to congested for economic class.

Seats were not comfortable and touch free remote wasn’t working.

I wonder why checking carry on bags while the checking process was done by Moroccan security. Is it question of trust or Morocco security system is not qualified enough?

J’ai mon carte de fidélité Sky team gold À Dubaï je me sui présenté avec mon carte je sui rentré dans le louange Maintenant arrivé à Riyadh on m’a refusé que je rentre que parce que c’est la carte de Air France Et pourtant il y’a le partenariat bon brefs Tout ça c’est du racisme parce que je suis un africain

Food could be better. Bread should be warm served with butter. Bread quality is bad and cold served.

Thw pla e was freezing by dar the cildest flight i’ve been on. The seats are comfortable the leg room is spacious and the seat is in leather very confy. Unfortunately old plane so no plugs the entertainment is limited the inflight internet is very expensive 20$ per hour for 50mb on a 17h you will take 2 times to contact your family and work. At this cost it goes very quick very high. The food is very mediocre A breakfast tastless A snack A meal super spicy A lot of improvement are to be made

Good variety could have been better; crew not as friendly

Since it leaves at 2:00am you sleep through most of it.

Flight was delayed, but there was no explanation why. Seats were comfortable and service was good. Food was good and there were more snacks than I expected.

The best way to fly is saudia airlines flight Every thing is better (Number one 🫶) Thank you

My baggage was not with the same flight I travelled

There was not enough meals to serve in business class. The crew was busy and not very accommodating. They talked to each other more than attending to the passengers needs. Not professional at all and not properly supervised at all.

I used the airline 5-6 times for the last year and every flight have had perfect timing and I like it. Despite catastrophic absence of space for my legs 😁

The crew was utterly non helping and non courteous.I asked for a water. The air hostess could have said it's paid . She informed me that I will come later after serving but never turned up. The seats were never comfortable.My first and last flight with Pegasus.I am not taking again

The plane left Istanbul 1 hour late and the AC was not really working great it was so hot inside and no air. This was my worst flight in a long time since I had a flight with Ryanair.

Cheap and cheerful. It’s a super cheap, no frills flight. Very professional and as it’s an A320 relatively spacious. Seats do not recline. Happy with the service. You get what you pay for. Can’t complain

I had 4 flights for less than a week and there were no delays and issues. Thanks to the crews and for perfectly organised service.

There is no usb for charging the phone you should provide the water

Pegasus is a clean safe and most importantly CHEAP way to travel. If you travel a lot on a budget, it can be a great option

Didn't enforce passengers to wear medical grade masks nor that they even properly wear their masks throughout the flight. So it was lots of people of unknown vaccination status all around me without masks on the whole flight.

I liked that we could pre order and pay for meals. Crew was super efficient and got everything exactly right and of course we didn’t even have to ask it was all super seamless I wish other airlines would do this.

Pros: "The flight from Istanbul to Prague was fairly basic but everything worked well and was comfortable. The flight was on time. The bags were delivered quickly. There were no problems on the flight as it was relatively quiet. Overall, no complaints."
Cons: "The boarding in Istanbul was via bus, which is not only uncomfortable but impossible to socially distance on. In Prague we deplaned via a jetway. In Istanbul the gate control person was overly vigilant in checking documents. It was very disturbing :("

It was truly amazing. I will do it again! Excellent!

Pre flight food options were not working and made the flight not enjoyable. Post experiences of British airways have been positive, but this is enough to stop me using British airways again

Flight cancelled and i was rebooked on delta. Delta business class is not the same as British

It was nice and smooth from boarding to landing. Flight crew was wonderful and very professional.

Boarding could be smoother. But the flight crew was excellence. Very professional, friendly and helpful.

The crew was great but we sat in the plane for over an hour before takeoff combined with a 4 hour delay on our previous flight caused us to miss planned scheduled meetings in Geneva.

Everything was fine except my screen wasn’t working and I was unable to watch any movies or TV. Staff tried 3 times to reboot it, without success.

Not as bad as from Newark to London ,but that doesn’t mean I will book with them again

Positive boarding experience, easy access to seat with plenty of luggage space

Too many passengers are bringing two large bags, neither fit under the seat so space is limited and the crew ask for many people to check bags
