When construction is complete in 2017, the new-look Abu Dhabi airport will be capable of handling almost 30 million passengers a year. Work on the expansion began in 2006, with Abu Dhabi Airports Company the preferred bidder for building the new Midfield Terminal.

The 700,000-square-metre Midfield Terminal is designed to accommodate up to 65 aircraft.

The check-in area will be capable of handling about 8,500 passengers an hour through 165 counters and 48 self-service kiosks.

The baggage system is designed to process more than 19,000 bags an hour.

Together with the development of the East Midfield site - a 200-hectare space for cargo handling, ground handling, in-flight catering and other support operations - the airport will grow to eight times its current size.
