Your guide to Ramadan 2018 at Skydive Dubai
Joy and blessings to you during this year's Ramadan. Given the significance of Ramadan in the UAE, those visiting our locations during this time are requested to read through our guide below to avoid any inconvenience and enjoy Ramadan in Dubai. What is Ramadan? Ramadan is the ninth month of the Hijri (Islamic) calendar and is a sacred time for Muslims around the world. It lasts for 29 to 30 days or one moon cycle. During this time Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset. This observance is considered one of the five pillars of Islam. Eid Al-Fitr, which translates to ‘festival of breaking the fast’, begins after the last day of Ramadan and is a three-day celebration that centers around family gatherings and feasting. Dubai transforms during Ramadan and provides visitors a unique cultural experience. To help you get the best experience we’ve drawn out a list of tips to follow during Ramadan. When to book a skydive If you are fasting and would like to book a tandem skydive we suggest booking one of the earlier slots in the day. Share a greeting Ramadan Kareem and Ramadan Mubarak are popular greetings used during the Holy Month to greet each other. Refrain from eating and drinking in public Do not eat, drink or smoke in public places during fasting hours. This includes the hangar, the outdoor gym area, the lawn at the entrance, and outside the main building. Café on premises Non-Muslims looking for a quick bite are welcome to visit our onsite cafés which will remain open during the hours of operation at both our locations. Dress conservatively If you are a tandem customer or are accompanying one to our locations, please make sure you are dressed appropriately. It is recommended to wear comfortable sportswear and avoid clothing that is sheer, too short, low-cut or tight-fighting. You are also advised to cover your shoulders and knees out of respect to those observing Ramadan. We do have bathrooms where you can change in and out of your sports clothes. Outdoor gym decorum If you are visiting the outdoor public gym on our premises you are requested to abide by the guidelines mentioned above and dress conservatively. You are welcome to use the changing rooms at the main Skydive Dubai building if required. Please also refrain from drinking water in public during fasting hours. Prayer room onsite Our Desert Campus DZ has an onsite mosque and our Palm DZ has a public prayer room located on the first floor of the main building. Hold back on PDA Any public display of affection is considered indecent, and even more so during Ramadan. This includes holding hands and hugging. Be charitable Ramadan is a time for reflection, gratitude, and charity. Skydive Dubai has teamed up with Alpine water company Monviso for its ‘Take Water. Give Life’ initiative that donates AED 1 to Al Jalila Foundation for every 1 liter sold by the program’s participants. You too can choose to be a part of this initiative by ordering water through the Monviso app. Avoid playing loud music Please refrain from dancing, playing music or singing in public as it may offend those who are fasting. If you’d like to listen to music while waiting for your planeload inside our hangar, you may use a pair of headphones with the volume on low. #whyiskydive Skydive Dubai will run its #whyiskydive online initiative during Ramadan. If you’d like to share why you are thankful to skydive don’t forget to use one (or more) of the following tags on your social media posts: #skydivedubai, #whyiskydive and #ramadankareem. Licensed skydivers briefing We always ask visiting licensed skydivers to contact our manifest staff before they plan their visit. This is to ensure a smooth manifest experience on arrival. For those looking to skydive during Ramadan in Dubai, both of our locations will be open for skydiving. Our Desert Campus location will open only on the weekend in May and will close for the summer on June 1. Skydive Dubai’s premium location the Palm DZ will remain open during the period of Ramadan and Eid and for the rest of the summer. The Skyhub Dubai Gyrocopter experience at our Palm DZ will be available in May, and potentially June. As always everyone (including families) is welcome to visit our dropzones and watch skydivers land from the viewing area outside our cafés even if you don’t have a skydive booked with us. You are, however, requested to adhere to the points mentioned above when you do. For those opting to skydive with us, an airconditioned tent has been set up at the loading area for customers and licensed skydivers as they wait to board the aircraft at the Palm DZ. Don't forget, we are offering a Year of Zayed promotion for our tandem skydives at the Palm DZ for AED 1,799. Our limited-time Year of Zayed promotion will be available until May 31. We appreciate your cooperation during this special time and look forward to skydiving with you. Ramadan Kareem!

Skydive Dubai schedule during Ramadan 2018
Skydive Dubai’s Palm DZ will remain open during Ramadan and Eid this year with slots available to book online now. Our Desert Campus location will be open only on the weekends in May and will be accessible exclusively to licensed skydivers. Sorry, but there will be no pre-booked tandem skydiving operations available at the Desert Campus dropzone in May. Everyone is always welcome to come to either location, when we are open, to watch skydivers land or to shop in our merchandise store. Just a reminder, our ‘Refer a Friend’ promotion will be applicable until the end of May. Those who’ve booked a tandem skydive with us at the Palm DZ from January 1 to May 31 are eligible for a discount on a second tandem skydive at the dropzone or pass it on to a friend or family member who now wants to skydive. Learn more about the promotion’s terms and conditions here. The special offer for licensed skydivers will also continue through the summer. Those who bring along or book-in a tandem customer at the Palm DZ will receive one free full-altitude jump ticket for the dropzone. Our Gyrocopter introductory flight will also continue in May. Those interested in taking off on an aerial adventure at 1500 ft can book their experience here. We're also pleased to announce that during Ramadan, Skydive Dubai will run a special ‘#whyiskydive’ campaign. Each day, we will share quotes and experiences from our customers about why they decided to skydive. These will be shared every day on Skydive Dubai’s official social media channels. To participate, make sure you tag us using #whyiskydive & #skydivedubai when you share your photos or videos on social media. We look forward to welcoming you to Skydive Dubai this summer. Ramadan Kareem. (more…)
