Abu Dhabi International Airport

Airport in Abu Dhabi

About 30km southeast of the city centre, this ever-expanding airport has three terminals, including Etihad's exclusive base, Terminal 3. The airport is compact and efficient, meaning that you can sometimes get from the plane to the street in under half an hour.

Abu Dhabi International is often recognised (by Sky Tracks) as the best airport in the Middle East, and it won the best staff service award in 2014. There's also free wi-fi throughout.
