Abu Dhabi Airports says temporary move of several flights from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3 not related to coronavirus outbreak
Abu Dhabi Airports on Thursday announced the temporary move of several flights from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3 at Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH).
In a statement, the company said it had consolidated operations into two terminals after it closed Terminal 2 on Monday.
The airport is home to Etihad Airways, which operates out of terminal 3.
"The temporary terminal move reflects Abu Dhabi Airports’ commitment to delivering efficient operations and a seamless passenger experience," it said.
Abu Dhabi Airports added that it is currently working in close partnership with the respective airlines to ensure a smooth transition from Terminal 1 to Terminal 3.
The statement said that the recent terminal operational updates "do not reflect the current situation regarding the outbreak of coronavirus".
"It is fully in line with Abu Dhabi Airports’ dedication to delivering smoother connections for passengers and efficient operations for airline partners," it added.
Abu Dhabi Airports did not provide details of the selected flights, but recommended that passengers check the correct terminal with their respective airline before travelling to the airport.
