Abu Dhabi airport gets new look
Abu Dhabi, February 27, 2008
Abu Dhabi Airport has given a new look to its Terminal One building with a range of posters and artwork to help welcome travellers to the emirate.
Based on the work developed by the Office of the Brand, Abu Dhabi, the installations reflect the core values which Abu Dhabi wants to project to visitors and residents alike – the value of respect.
Chairman of ADAC, the owner and operator of Abu Dhabi international airport, Khalifa M Al Mazrouei said this was a key step forward to ensure that the gateway to Abu Dhabi reflected the hospitality and respect that the UAE capital had in store for travellers, visitors and residents.
'It is important that the city’s airport reflects the city and emirate of Abu Dhabi and these installations start the process of doing that,' he noted.
'Too many airports in the world are anonymous and could be anywhere. I am delighted that we have been able to integrate the work of the brand office and interpret it in an interesting way which enhances the environment of the airport and helps us make our visitors feel welcome,” Al Mazrouei added.
Further phases of work are being planned in the coming months that will see signage and landscaping renewed around the airport and its approaches ahead of the opening of the new terminal three facility.
The Dh1 billion ($273 million) terminal will accommodate up to five million passengers per year and will primnarily be for the use of Etihad passengers.
It will feature premium class lounges and an enhanced duty free facility that is expected to host some of the world’s leading luxury brands.-TradeArabia News Service
