Construction of Abu Dhabi Airport Terminal to Start Next Year

Reading Time: 1 minute


In a mission to compete with the other regional hubs for a bigger share in the air travel market, the much awaited terminal building in Abu Dhabi, home of Etihad Airways and the main gateway of the capital, the government has given the green light to begin its construction come next year. With the development and expansion plan underway, progress on the Immense Terminal Building is expected to take place in the second quarter of 2012, where it will make its grand opening to the public in 2017. Graced with a central space enough to fit three football fields, a luxury hotel, a spa and a ceiling-span of 52 metres, the creation of such an advanced infrastructure is imperative for Abu Dhabi Airport Company (ADAC) should it wish to remain in league with the rest of the emirates.

Abu Dhabi has been observed to have quietly invested in the expansion of its infrastructure sector in order to house the growing number of travellers coming through this key UAE hub, and hopes to strengthen its grip as the capital of the UAE to draw in more customers with its lucrative transfer traffic options. The terminal received six bids for its construction, among them a joint venture between UAE’s Al Habtoor, South Africa’s Murray and Roberts and Germany’s Hochtief.
