Burj Khalifa - Do We Have Time?

I will be staying overnight in Dubai at an airport hotel after a 14 hour flight. Wondering if I would have time to visit Burj Khalifa in the morning, return to the hotel to pick up baggage in time to be at the airport around noon on a Friday? Would appreciate comments. I could book tickets in advance but will wait for comments. Thanks!

The visitors platform opens at 08.30 a.m, the ride from the Burj to the airport should not take more than 10 to 15 minutes on a Friday morning. This should give you plenty of time to go up there, stay for about an hour and go back to the hotel/airport.

Try to check in baggage to final destination if possible from your point of departure. If not, and if you are flying Emirates, you can do early check in when you land in Dubai. This saves the luggage hassle. For the Burj, yes you can do it easily. If you want to go on top, try to book in advance as it saves about 65%
