Sheikh Zayed to be Honored with Abu Dhabi Airport Renaming

Abu Dhabi International Airport is set to undergo a significant name change in honor of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan. The President, His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, has issued directives to rename the airport as Zayed International Airport. The official name change is scheduled to take effect on February 9, 2024, coinciding with the official opening of the new Terminal A. This modern terminal commenced its operational phase on November 1.

Smooth Transition Period for Airlines

During the first two weeks, a transition period will be in effect, allowing all terminals, including A, 1, 2, and 3, to operate simultaneously. Starting from November 14, all airlines will exclusively operate from Terminal A. Etihad Airways will also gradually shift its flights to Terminal A, with full operation from the new terminal beginning at 11 a.m. on November 14.
