Abu Dhabi Airport completes T1 redevelopment

Abu Dhabi Airports Company (ADAC) has announced the completion of the Terminal 1 refurbishment at Abu Dhabi International Airport, which has expanded the passenger handling capacity to enhance the quality of service across the airport.

As part of the 12-month project, 12 new check-in counters have been introduced, new immigration counters have been added, and the security facilities have been increased by 20%.

Eng. Ahmed Al Haddabi, COO, ADAC, said: “At Abu Dhabi Airports Company we are constantly striving to elevate the travel experience and ensure clients, whether passengers or airlines, enjoy a unique journey. Driven from this ambition, T1 underwent a thorough and carefully designed upgrade plan to bring it in line with Terminal 3, and ensure that customers using any part of Abu Dhabi International Airport will have a refreshing and efficient start or end to their journey.

“The refurbishment works were carried out in phases, taking into consideration the peak seasons to ensure travellers’ safety, convenience and comfort over the last 12 months, and to provide ADAC with a short-term solution to cater for the expected traffic growth at the Capital’s airport in the coming few years.”
