Passengers have been directed to the main airport or check-in facility at ADNEC
Abu Dhabi has closed its City Terminal check-in facility from this morning (Thursday, October 3).
In a statement, the airport said the closure “falls in line with Abu Dhabi International Airport’s commitment to providing passengers with a streamlined and comfortable experience that allows passengers departing from the airport easy access to their flights and onward destinations”.
Passengers were previously able to check in their luggage and get their boarding pass at City Terminal.
The statement added: “All passengers travelling from AUH are encouraged to depart directly from the airport, where they will be able to enjoy the full comfort and amenities offered to them by Abu Dhabi Airports’ staff, or to visit the conveniently located Abu Dhabi International Airport Expo check-in, located at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC), open seven days a week from 9am to 8pm local time.”
Abu Dhabi is due to open its $3 billion Midfield Terminal Complex, although no official date has been announced. The new building is expected to be capable of handling more than 8,500 people per hour.For all the latest transport news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
