Emirates Airlines, whose partnership with the club is one of the most recognizable and long-standing in sport, will be flying the team to Dubai.

Mikel Arteta will use the training camp to bring the squad together in a warmer climate as part of preparations for the fixture against Newcastle United on February 16, the Europa League clash against Olympiacos four days later and the run-in that follows.

“As we prepare for several key fixtures, we are looking forward to a change of routine with some warm-weather training,” Arteta said.
