Abu Dhabi International Airport

Abu Dhabi International Airport

Operated by Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC), Abu Dhabi International Airport serves the city of Abu Dhabi, capital of the United Arab Emirates. It is the second largest airport in the UAE. In 2008, its passenger traffic achieved a record 9.02 million passengers, up by 30.2 per cent from 6.9 million passengers in 2007.

In January 2009, Abu Dhabi international was the first airport in the Middle East region to receive regulatory approval for enhanced low visibility operations. This classification, also known as CAT III B, allows for aircraft to land safely and maneuver in low visibility conditions. The upgrading of the airport’s original runway allows it to be operational unless visibility falls below 125m. Widely expected to help reduce delays associated with weather conditions, such as heavy fog, the new classification puts Abu Dhabi International Airport among a select number of airports in the world.

To meet further growing demand, ADAC has begun development work on a major new passenger terminal, to be situated between the two parallel runways and known as the Midfield Terminal Complex (MTC). The construction of the Midfield Terminal is a key element of the broader Midfield Complex, which will include cargo and catering facilities, utilities and related infrastructure. In its first year of operation, the planned capacity of this facility is expected to reach 20 million passengers, gradually increasing to 40 million passengers per annum.

The airport is an award-winning facility that is increasingly being recognized as the airport of choice offering passengers a unique combination of functional advantages and convivial travel experience. A host of initiatives recently introduced are confirming the airport’s image as a passenger centric facility.
