Directions for your Al Maktoum DWC airport transfer

As the newer airport of Dubai, Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC), also known as Dubai World Central, is currently the main host for lower-cost airlines, taking significant pressure off Dubai’s main airport. Al Maktoum airport is located south-west of the city, 52 kilometres away from the downtown area. Taking a taxi from Al Maktoum International airport shouldn’t take more than 40 minutes under normal traffic conditions. The journey into the city centre of Dubai starts by heading north from the airport compound and then turning right onto Sheikh Zayed Avenue. This avenue passes straight through the heart of the city, so from here, your driver will use the local roads to reach your hotel.

Why choose a Dubai World Central taxi?

Dubai is a very busy city with many different public transport networks. Although their trains and buses are efficient, none of these services will be able to guarantee the safety of your personal belongings during your transfer, nor will they drop you off directly at the door of your hotel. For this level of service, you will need to choose an Al Maktoum airport taxi.

Cost of a taxi from Al Maktoum International airport

Unfortunately, the local drivers at Al Maktoum airport don’t give a set-rate fee for the journey into Dubai. They will charge you using a taximeter based on distance. Although costs for things such as luggage and late-night driving may be added, the average cost for this DWC airport taxi ride is €37. To enjoy the peace of mind of a set-rate fee, we suggest booking your Al Maktoum airport taxi transfer in advance with Welcome Pickups. 

The benefits of booking a Welcome Airport Taxi

Once you’ve booked your Dubai DWC airport transfer, you open up a world of travel extras and fully customisable in-destination travel experiences with Welcome. You can take advantage of things such as our skip the line tickets for some of the most popular attractions in Dubai, like the Red Dune Safari and the Abu Dhabi Sheikh Zayed Mosque. Book your tickets in advance with us and your driver will hand-deliver them to you on the day of your pickup, so you don’t have to waste a moment of your time in Dubai starting in line at the ticket counters. With all your travel needs taken care of by Welcome, you can concentrate on enjoying every second of your vacation. 

Frequently asked questions

Where do I meet my driver?

To ensure a smooth pickup, one day before you fly to Dubai Al Maktoum airport, you will receive an email containing your driver’s name, a photo and their number. Then, on the day of your DWC airport transfer, you will find your driver waiting just outside of the arrivals hall.

What do I do if my flight is delayed?

At Welcome, we provide all of our drivers with live updates on any changes to your flight’s schedule. So, even if you’re heavily delayed, your driver will be there to meet you right on time.

Is the cost of a Dubai World Central taxi per person?

No. All of our prices are per vehicle, never per person. You will get one set-rate cost for either our minivan or sedan Al Maktoum airport taxis and there will be no hidden extras.
