The Fast Track Flight Connections initiative enables transfer passengers travelling aboard flights originating from partner airports in Europe, the United States, and Canada to take advantage of the new, streamlined security screening processes within Abu Dhabi International Airport. Under the new procedure, the flow of passengers and their baggage to their onward destination will be expedited.

 

This initiative was developed and implemented in collaboration with the General Civil Aviation Authority, the Department of Municipalities and Transport, the General Administration of Customs, Abu Dhabi Airports, Etihad Airways, and international airport partners.

 

Sheikh Mohammed bin Hamad bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan, chairman of Abu Dhabi Airports, said: “The development and implementation of the new Fast Track Flight Connections initiative at Abu Dhabi International Airport comes as a part of our wider efforts to support the growth of air travel and transport in the post-pandemic era. By facilitating faster and more efficient transfers, the new procedure also further positions Abu Dhabi as a global hub, bridging the East and West.”

 

Shareef Al Hashmi, chief executive officer of Abu Dhabi Airports, said: “The new Fast Track Flight Connections initiative will enable select transfer passengers to benefit from faster connections, which will reduce the overall length of their trips, help them avoid missing connecting flights, and provide them with additional time to enjoy all the amenities we have on offer at Abu Dhabi International Airport.

 

“This significant enhancement to the travel experience of our transfer passengers, and our extensive precautionary measures across Abu Dhabi International Airport, are a reflection of our commitment to putting our customers first and ensuring their health, safety and comfort throughout their journey through the UAE’s capital,” added Al Hashmi.
