Abu Dhabi International Airport

The airport was first opened in 1968 under the name Al Bateen Airport (AZI/OMAD) and was located in Abu Dhabi island/city, which can be seen here. Due to the development of the city, the airport was moved and re-opened in 1982 under its current name, the Abu Dhabi International Airport (ADIA). The new airport is located 32km (20 miles) south-east of the city, positioned at latitude 24º 41 (N), longitude 54º 67 (E).

The modern airport has one passenger terminal which is satellite (donut) shaped with telescopic boarding walkways, which eliminates the need to walk through long airport corridors. The inside of the passenger terminal is covered with blue-tiled atrium and contains the Abu Dhabi Duty Free, which has twice won the best travel retailer in the Middle East twice. The airport also contains 1 runway that is 4.1km (2.55 miles) long, 2 cargo terminals, 12 gates, 5 baggage claim belts, and 24 aircraft stands. The airport currently accommodates 40 passenger airlines, which serve a total of 90 destinations. The airport also contains 36 check-in counters and an 18-hole sand golf course. The meet and assist services provided by the airport are handled by Golden Class.
The Abu Dhabi Intl. Airport is managed by Abu Dhabi Civil Aviation Department and maintained by Abu Dhabi Airport Services. The airport opened a check-in facility in the Abu Dhabi city known as the City Terminal on June 21st 1999. The City Terminal allows passengers to check-in their luggage and obtain a boarding pass, which reduces the time an individual would wait at the airport. This service is free for first and business classes.
