The sky's the limit for Skydive Dubai

Re-launch includes new runway, lounge and restaurant

Knowledge story, The Knowledge

Thrill seekers will be pleased to hear that the skydiving spot in Dubai Marina has re-launched after summer with a bigger runway and a brand spanking new restaurant and lounge (managed by Jumeirah) appropriately named Zero Gravity. Yet the ambitious chaps at Skydive Dubai aren’t hanging up their parachutes with the new facilities, revealing plans to add a swimming pool to the complex in the near future. The improved runway is nearly double the length of its predecessor, stretching a whopping 850 metres, with the capacity to accommodate two new planes that have been added to the team’s fleet. With pop superstar Katy Perry headlining last year’s World Parachuting Championship closing ceremony at Meydan, Dubai is becoming a skydiving hub. Skydive Dubai has been reaping the benefits of the city’s year-on-year growth in tourism, having blossomed from a team of 35 staff to a company of now more than 300 employees.
