All airlines now operating from Abu Dhabi's Terminal A


All 28 airlines operating from Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) have now fully transitioned to Terminal A, marking a significant ramp up in its capacity.

Terminal A is now the primary terminal serving AUH, with flights arriving to and departing from the emirate, set to use the cutting-edge facilities available.

The new travel hub is able to process up to 45 million travellers annually and handle 79 planes at once.

The leading facilities available at Terminal A include biometric technology to streamline the screening and boarding process, and 35,000 square metres of retail and F&B space.

In November as a whole, 7,669 flights are expected to operate from Terminal A with already 1,557 flights operating in the first two weeks of operations.

The number of flights operating is set to further increase in December to 12,220, as will the number of passengers using the new terminal projected to be 2.29 million.

"Bringing new state-of-the-art facilities and a major increase in aviation capacity, Terminal A will greatly enhance the passenger experience, whilst enabling international airlines to further increase their presence in Abu Dhabi," said Elena Sorlini, Managing Director and Interim Chief Executive Officer at Abu Dhabi Airports.
