New $2.9bn Midfield Terminal Building to open in 2017

The new Midfield Terminal Complex at Abu Dhabi Airport is one of the most eagerly-anticipated projects being undertaken in the Emirate for years.

Abu Dhabi Airports CEO Tony Douglas says that very shortly the AED10.9bn ($2.9bn) Midfield Terminal Building (MTB) at Abu Dhabi International Airport is about to go from “being one of the better-kept secrets to a spectator sport”.

The MTB will be massive when complete in 2017. Reaching 700,000m2 in area, it will be about one-and-a-half times bigger than Terminal 3 at Dubai International Airport and also Heathrow Airport’s Terminal 5.


It will be the largest single building in Abu Dhabi and be visible from more than 1.5km away; a striking steel structure between the airport’s northern and southern runways.
