UNITED ARAB EMIRATES - ABU DHABI
Global Traveler|July 2021
Abu Dhabi, both the name of an island city and the emirate surrounding it, is the capital and center of government for the United Arab Emirates.

As home to just less than 1.5 million people, the emirate’s oil wealth helped rapidly transform Abu Dhabi into the modern, leading and cosmopolitan metropolis it is today.

GETTING THERE & AROUND

Award-winning Abu Dhabi International Airport serves the emirate with direct flights to a number of destinations on a variety of airlines. Etihad, the flag carrier, offers first- and business-class passengers free Etihad Chauffeur Service to and from the airport. Air-conditioned, reliable and affordable bus service is available from all three terminals, making all stops into the city. A 45-minute, one-way trip costs about $1.15. Rental cars, rideshares and taxis are also on offer. Get around the emirate easily with those same options: car, rideshare, taxis and buses.
