Abu Dhabi International (AUH) Airport
Abu Dhabi International AUH Airport Overview
Abu Dhabi International Airport AUH - gateway to the Emirate of Abu Dhabi - is one of the world's fastest-growing airports in terms of passenger count and development of its infrastructure. The Airport's advanced CAT IIIB classification allows for safe landings during periods of dense fog. Skytrax has given Abu Dhabi Airport a 3-star rating, and World Airports awarded it "Best Middle East Airport " in 2012 & 2013.
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.
New Domestic Flights: RAK Airways offers domestic flights to Ras Al Khaimah (RKT) Airport, while Rotana Jet offers flights to Al Ain (AAN) Airport.
The on-Airport Abu Dhabi Airport Hotel' (tel. 971 (0)2 5757377; /fax 458) with 30 rooms & a small mosque is located inside Terminal 1 (right side, just after Departure Immigration Hall). Booking can be done at T1 or T2 ticket counters. Advantage: no need to go through passport control when transiting later to another flight. Disadvantage: no hourly rates & fills up quickly.
(The Premier Inn Hotel just started ground breaking work across from Terminal 3 and is to open in March 2013).
The passenger terminal complex at Abu Dhabi International at present consists of three passenger terminals - T1, T2 & T3.
Future Airport Developments: The new Terminal 3 is intended to be an interim terminal until the Midfield Terminal Complex (MTC), which is to become the Airport's center-piece and built between two runways, will be operational by 2017. The broader Midfield Complex will include cargo & catering facilities, utilities & related infrastructure.
