This month the Red Bull Air Race is taking to the skies above Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates from 8-9 February for the first race of the season.

It will be the 12th time that Abu Dhabi has hosted the race and once again it’s set to be an action-packed opener for a brand new World Championship.

Taking place over the crystal-clear waters of the Arabian Gulf, fans can watch the action from the Corniche breakwater. It offers an eight-kilometre pristine beachfront with unrivalled views of the race and the UAE capital’s impressive skyline.

If you’re planning on watching the race, then both Abu Dhabi International (AUH/ OMAA), and Al Bateen Executive International (AZI/ OMAD) are good options and both are open 24 hours.
