We would also like to extend a thank you to all passengers who took part in the survey for their positive feedback and trust in Abu Dhabi International Airport and its services.
“ADAC is on track with its plans for the development of the Emirate’s airports’ infrastructure to support Abu Dhabi Vision 2030, and deliver efficient and quality services that will exceed that of leading international airports. This accolade adds to ADAC’s accountability and commitment to deliver the iconic Mid-Field Terminal in 2017, positioning Abu Dhabi and the UAE as the air transport hub for the region.”
