The 2013 winner of the best Middle Eastern airport for the third year in a row, Abu Dhabi International Airport is a favoured destination of many carriers flying from the UK. Etihad’s main base, Abu Dhabi International is an easy and picturesque way to start any holiday to the Middle East or Abu Dhabi.
Apart from flying to Abu Dhabi International with the airport’s main carrier, Etihad, British Airways also fly here. Many flights from the UK will include a connection, but Etihad and British Airways both fly directly from Heathrow.
Public transport at the airport is easy to use, with set-price taxis available at any time of day. These taxis have very reasonable fares, and are the simplest way to get from the airport to your accommodation. There are also a number of chauffeur services and car rental firms to choose from.
Over 25 airlines fly to and from Abu Dhabi International, from 85 cities in almost 50 countries, meaning this bustling hub has every food outlet, information stand and duty-free shop you can imagine. Like the majority of buildings and businesses throughout the Middle East, the airport delivers a 5-star experience for every traveller. From traditional Arabian elements to cutting edge architecture, the facility is modern with an ancient charm: perfect as an introduction to the Emirate.
