Abu Dhabi International (AUH) Airport

Abu Dhabi International AUH Airport Overview

Abu Dhabi International Airport AUH - gateway to the Emirate of Abu Dhabi - the capital of the United Emirates - 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 & 2014.

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 16 million passengers served yearly,  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.
