Abu Dhabi Airports
Abu Dhabi Airports is a public joint-stock company, wholly owned by the Abu Dhabi Government and headquartered at its principal asset, Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH).
Abu Dhabi Airports is the owner and operator of five airports: Abu Dhabi International Airport, Al Ain International Airport, Al Bateen Executive Airport, Delma Island Airport and Sir Bani Yas Island Airport; as well as two check-in facilities: Abu Dhabi International Airport City Check-in, at the heart of the city, and the airport Expo Check-in at Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre.
Abu Dhabi International Airport is one of the fastest growing airport hubs in the world currently serving over 93 destinations in 54 countries, and within the next few years, over twenty million passengers are expected to use Abu Dhabi International Airport as their origin, destination or transit point for international and domestic flights. As part of Abu Dhabi’s Economic Vision 2030,Abu Dhabi Airports has been tasked with ensuring that the airport is able to provide world-class services which meet this demand over the coming years. To meet growing demand, in late 2012, Abu Dhabi Airports launched the construction works for the Midfield Terminal Building (MTB). The construction of the MTB is a key element of the Capital’s airport broader Infrastructure development program, which will include cargo and catering facilities, utilities and related infrastructure. In its first year of operation, the planned capacity of the facility is to reach 30 million passengers.
The MTB is destined to become the future home of Etihad Airways, the national airline of the UAE, and the primary gateway for its airline’ partners operating to Abu Dhabi. The MTB, which will be completed in the third quarter of 2017, will contribute to the long-term success of the aviation sector in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
