Abu Dhabi connects

A transfer passenger screening facility at Abu Dhabi International Airport has opened as part of the airport’s continued Capacity Enhancement Program (CEP).

The programme, which was launched in 2010, is gradually increasing the passenger handling capability at Abu Dhabi reaching a larger throughput potential of the airport from the current 16m to over 18m passengers per annum.  The new facility includes 16 new x-ray machines that will enhance transfer passengers’ processing and movement from the arrival areas to the duty free and other departure facilities at the airport.
Ahmad Al Haddabi, Chief Operations Officer at Abu Dhabi Airports, said: “The Capacity Enhancement Program at our existing Terminals 1 and 3 is progressing well and cements our commitment to offering our passengers a world class travelling experience while construction of the new Midfield Terminal Complex continues at a rapid rate.  Last year we witnessed record growth figures for the airport, with more than 16.5m passengers using our facilities, demonstrating the need for this programme to be delivered as quickly as possible in the interim.”
Abu Dhabi International Airport is now able to channel transfer traffic into two separate screening facilities, which will drastically reduce congestion at these facilities during peak traffic times.  www.abudhabiairport.ae
