Connections and transfers in Abu Dhabi

A shuttle bus service will operate for guests transiting in Abu Dhabi on a confirmed transfer itinerary who may need to move between terminals. There’s no need to leave the airport.

If a connecting flight departs from a different terminal, guests need to board the airside shuttle bus with plenty of time to reach their gate. Buses depart from Gate F in Terminal A, and Gate 29 in Terminal 3.

Our team will be available at the Transfer Services desks for guests who need help or more information.
