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.
