Abu Dhabi International AUH Airport Overview
AUH Airport is located 32 miles from the center of Abu Dhabi, the capital city of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Three highways merge into E10 just before the airport approach: Highways 30, 2 and 8.
With two very long runways, and an estimated 15 million passengers served, Abu Dhabi International is hub for Etihad Airways, and is served by many other airlines, particularly Emirates, offering direct and connecting flights to all points of the globe.
New international flights: Currently Jetway operates 18 weekly direct flights to Mumbai. Kenya Airways offers 3 weekly flights to Nairobi.
