10 July 2018
Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) has launched a number of services that include transit visas on arrival, modern passenger processing systems, flight updates via social media, and Wi-Fi connectivity. As part of the enhancements, a new transit visa counter has been set up in association with Abu Dhabi’s Department of Culture and Tourism, Etihad Airways and the General Directorate of Residence and Foreigners Affairs in Abu Dhabi. Located at the T3 transit area at AUH, the visa counter can provide transit and arriving passengers with visas to Abu Dhabi within 30 min. The service supports the activation of the new four-day or 96-hr transit visa for all nationalities travelling through the airport. Abu Dhabi Airports CEO, Abdul Majeed Al Khoori, said: “Abu Dhabi Airports prioritises passenger safety above all else. We have worked hard to add the element of utmost convenience to this, to ensure that all passengers passing through Abu Dhabi International Airport have a truly world-class experience.” The airport also launched an automated flight information service known as BizTweet, which will enable incoming and outgoing travellers to receive real-time flight updates on topics such as gate departure and arrival times to their Twitter and Facebook accounts. At the same time, the airport introduced a new service at the baggage wrapping facility that allows travellers to store their luggage at the departures level.
