Dubai Arrivals Duty Free

We arrive on Sunday 29th June at 7.30am which coincides with day one of Ramadan.

We normally buy a bottle of bubbly or two and some beers for our room in the DAM in the Arrivals Duty Free.

Do you think they will be selling alcohol in there?

I know I could buy the champagne at Heathrow but I prefer to buy it on arrival to save carrying it on & off the plane.

The airport will be running as usual during Ramadan. Lounges will be serving food and you can buy alcohol.

Whenever traveling its best to purchase alcohol at your destination to avoid possible confiscation before boarding a plane. Some airlines have stricter rules with transporting liquids. Dubai definitely offers alcohol (champagne too)

Heres a link to alcohol in Dubai airport: https:/…8076

Buy at the duty free. Duty free works 24/7/365 (incl. alcohol).

You save lot's of money vs. buying at the DAM.

You can consume alcohol in your room at any time during the day.

The hotel will sell alcohol only after sunset.
