Taxi is the best option for traveling from Dubai International Airport to central city if you arrive at odd hours. All the taxis serving in the airport area are registered under the government-operated Dubai Taxi Corporation (DTC).
The taxis will surely take you anywhere you want to go. However, you’ll have to specify your destination based on a nearby hotel, landmark, or an intersection as Dubai addresses do not include building numbers.
Travel time: 13 to 15 minutes
Cost: You have to pay a flat AED 25 ($6.81) fee for getting into a taxi from the airport. Then, the charge for each subsequent kilometer will be AED 1.96 ($0.53). A trip from Dubai Airport to Burj Khalifa in Downtown Dubai can cost approximately AED 53 ($14.43).
Service hours: 24 hours
