Finding affordable flights from Abu Dhabi is a lot easier when the trip is planned with a reservation service like ebookers. The primary airport in the city is Abu Dhabi International Airport, which is located roughly twenty miles from the centre of the city. The airport services over three dozen airlines flying to up to eighty cities across the world. Some of these include British Airways, Cathay Pacific, Etihad Airways, and Virgin Australia. With an annual traffic of ten million passengers, the airport is one of the fastest growing airports in the world.
Travellers who drive to the airport will find numerous parking options available to them. Next to the airport (within walking distance of Terminal 1 and Terminal 3) is an ultra-modern car park. Short-term parking is charged at AED 10 for the first hour and then AED 10 for every additional hour. Cars are only allowed a maximum of seventy-two hours in the short-term parking lot. Travellers who intend on being away for more than three days but less than a week can use the mid-term parking zone, which costs a maximum of AED 1,190 for seven days. Long-term parking costs AED 120 per day for a maximum of sixty days.
The airport connects to the city via several options. Travellers can choose to take either metered taxis or limousines. If you plan to use a limousine service, a good tip is to make prior reservations before your trip using an online booking service like ebookers. Air-conditioned buses also scoot between the airport and the city, and they arrive at forty-minute intervals at all three terminals. It costs AED 3 for a one-way trip.
While waiting for your flight, the airport offers a wide range of beverage and international food outlets that you can stop at for a meal. You can stop for a quick bite and coffee at numerous cafes (including Starbucks), grab a burger at MacDonald's, or enjoy a local Abu Dhabi meal at a restaurant.
