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.
