History of Abu Dhabi International Airport

Abu Dhabi is the capital of the UAE, and Abu Dhabi International airport is its main airport. The airport was the brainchild of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. The construction of the airport was started in 1979, and the airport was Inaugurated in 1982. The airport has a check-in facility located in downtown Abu Dhabi which resembles an airline terminal, and it is called the City terminal. Passengers can check-in at this remote facility and arrive an hour before their departure to the airport via a train. Abu Dhabi International Airport is one of the very few airports in the world, and the only one in the Middle-East to have a United States border pre-clearance approval.
