The long-awaited terminal at Abu Dhabi International Airport would significantly improve the airport’s capacity by up to 45 million passengers per year.

Initially supposed to open in 2017, Abu Dhabi’s new terminal will finally start operating on December 2, 2023, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) 's National Day.

Currently Terminal 3 is dedicated to Etihad Airways’ departures and arrivals, while Terminals 1 and 2 are used by all other airlines. Once the Midfield Terminal is launched, Terminals 1, 2 and 3 will be closed completely.

Originally the Midfield was meant to be the main hub for the Etihad to compete with Emirates and Qatar airlines. However, the strategy has been changed by the authorities and the opening was postponed several times. According to the reports the project stood at 97.6% completion in 2019.

The new Midfield Terminal would be equipped with the world’s most extensive baggage handling system and cutting-edge technologies.
