Passenger traffic building momentum in Abu Dhabi


Abu Dhabi International Airport is expecting a busy next few months with passenger numbers boosted by Eid Al Adha and the upcoming summer holiday season.

Around 2.8 million passengers are expected to pass through Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) during July and August this year, of which 414,000 are specific to the Eid Al Adha travel season between July 7-15, 2022.

“We are excited to keep the momentum going as the industry continues to recover and consumer confidence rebounds,” says Abu Dhabi Airports’ chief commercial officer, Francois Bourienne.

“Traffic during this upcoming peak season will ultimately have a positive impact on our 2022 traffic estimates of over 13 million passengers passing through Abu Dhabi International by the end of this year.”

Passengers flying from AUH are encouraged to benefit from the online/remote check-in, baggage drop-off points and other services provided by airlines to ensure a smooth airport experience and avoid potential delays.

The airport’s PCR Test facility also remains available as an optional service at AED40 for passengers who would like to activate their Green Pass on Al Hosn App, which is mandatory to enter public places, tourist attractions, commercial centres and other facilities in the emirate of Abu Dhabi.
