Abu Dhabi International Airport (Arabic: مطار أبو ظبي الدولي) (IATA: AUH, ICAO: OMAA) is an airport in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates. It is one of the fastest growing airports in the world in passengers (+34% in Q1:2008), new airline operators, and infrastructure development. The airport is now undergoing a AED 25 billion (US$6.8 billion) expansion. As of January 2012, 53 airlines offered service to 85 destinations in 49 countries.
The airport, 16.5 nautical miles (30.6 km; 19.0 mi) southeast of Abu Dhabi city, is the second largest in the UAE, serving over 12 million passengers in 2010. It has three operational passenger terminals—Terminal 1 (divided into Terminals 1A and 1B), Terminal 2, Terminal 3. Abu Dhabi International Airport is spread over an area of 60 square kilometres (15,000 acres). Its terminal spaces are dominated by Etihad Airways, which is the United Arab Emirates’ second largest air carrier after Emirates.
The new Terminal 3, a AED 1 billion (US$270 million) interim facility, was designed to allow for the airport’s passenger growth before the planned opening of the new Midfield Terminal on July 17, 2017. Used predominantly by Etihad Airways, the terminal boosted the airport’s seven million passenger per year capacity to 12 million. It also added 10 new gates, two of which are Airbus A380 compatible.
