Eid Adha 2022 flights

Apart from being a day of religious observances, Eid Adha is also synonymous with an extended holiday period. UAE travellers often take full advantage of the extended downtime by packing their bags and jetting off somewhere to appease their wanderlust.   

This year, Eid Adha will traditionally be celebrated for three straight days in the UAE, but by also taking into account Arafat Day, which is also considered a public holiday, UAE residents are in store for a long stretch of holiday. Expect four to six days of holidays, from 9 to 12 July.

Singapore

Why visit Singapore? Well, because it will surprise you that’s why.

To put it simply, Singapore may well break your expectation of what a modern metropolis would look and feel like with its green tropical parks, shopping malls, as well as its New York-style skyscrapers.

Travellers may only enter Singapore if they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and are able to produce digital or physical copies of their vaccination status.

When to book your Eid Adha 2022 flight?

As with pretty much all other major holidays, airfares will most certainly experience a rise as Eid Adha approaches. To get the best prices, it’s recommended you book your desired flight tickets as soon as they are available to purchase because more often than not, the prices will likely be the lowest prices you will find.

For example, the cheapest Dubai to Bali round-trip tickets for 8 to 11 July are currently priced at AED 3,068. It’s highly unlikely you’ll find a better deal for that window if you decide to book your flight within a week of your planned departure. Airlines will have no trouble filling up their seats approaching major holidays, which is precisely the reason why prices will inevitably soar.

So if you’ve any inclination of travelling during Eid Adha, we recommend booking your tickets now or at least three weeks before Eid Adha.
