According to Skyscanner, the busiest day for travel this Eid is set to be Friday, June 14, with Monday, June 17 to Wednesday, June 19 looking like a public holiday. For those after a bit of holiday inspo, it has also revealed the top trending destinations that UAE residents are escaping to this June. The top 5 most popular destinations for Eid travel are New York, Tokyo, Athens, Dublin, and Malé.

When is Eid Al Adha?

Eid Al Adha is the second and the largest of the two holidays celebrated in Islam. It falls on Dhul Hijjah 10 to 12, which, according to astrological calculations, is likely to correspond to Monday, June 17 to Wednesday, June 19 as public holiday (but is dependent on the sighting of the moon). So, those who have a Saturday and Sunday weekend will have a five-day break with work resuming on Thursday, June 20.

With our next long weekend possibly being five days long, if you plan ahead of time, taking Thursday, June 20 and Friday, June 21 off as a holiday will give you a total of nine days of holiday.

Because the Islamic Calendar is based on lunar months — it means that for these dates to be confirmed in the Gregorian calendar (the traditional January to December version), there has to be a sighting of the moon in a very specific phase. We will have to wait for confirmation on these dates closer to the time from UAE officials.
