Air Freight

Air freight to and from Abu Dhabi has been growing rapidly. This growth is expected to continue, resulting from the growth in airline services to and from Abu Dhabi and the rising value-added domestic economic activity in the Emirate.
In order to maintain and advance Abu Dhabi’s position within the air freight market, world class infrastructure provision is required.
Air freight activity is currently centered on Abu Dhabi International Airport. A new Mid-Field Terminal is to be developed at the Airport and the Airport Master Plan includes provision for a new freight terminal to replace the current capacity constrained facility. Al Ain International Airport is also looking to build its aviation activities to include aircraft maintenance and manufacture, which will potentially attract greater levels of air freight. Further airport development is intended for Al Gharbia to increase connectivity for some of the more remote communities and includes two airports in Al Hamra and Liwa.
