ABU DHABI // Passengers departing from or transiting through airports in the emirate of Abu Dhabi are to be charged a Dh35 service fee.

The fee will be introduced from June 30, reported Aletihad, the Arabic-language sister paper of The National, quoting the Official Gazette.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, has issued an Executive Council resolution to approve the fee.

Children under the age of two, transit passengers travelling on the same flight number and airline crew will be exempt from paying.

Abu Dhabi Airports Company will collect the fee from the airlines, which will charge it to customers through their flight tickets.

Dubai announced in March that it would start charging a Dh35 departure tax for all flights taking off after June 30. Sharjah followed suit with a similar announcement in April.
