Abu Dhabi International Airport is the second biggest in the United Arab Emirates, after Dubai International.
It was also the first airport in the Middle East to receive regulatory approval for enhanced low-visibility operators. This classification is expected to minimise delays as a result of fog and sand storms, and has only been given to a select number of airports across the world.
There are currently three terminals at Abu Dhabi International Airport. Terminals 1 and 2 handle most of the traffic, and Terminal 3 is the more luxurious Etihad Terminal. Thanks to a direct highway that feeds into the city, transfers into Abu Dhabi are generally quick and painless, even in the heat and traffic congestion of a busy summer’s day.
Abu Dhabi International Airport is an often chaotic introduction to the modern metropolis of Abu Dhabi and its many attractions, although with the development of Terminal 3, Etihad passengers (at least) are assured a most comfortable experience.
