A full scale emergency exercise will take place at Abu Dhabi International Airport on Wednesday.

The simulation will measure the preparedness, emergency response capabilities, and implementation of all strategies by those participating, according to Abu Dhabi Airports.

Starting at 2.30pm, it will last for approximately two-and-a-half hours, with airport operations continuing as normal.

Abu Dhabi Airports said the exercise is "in accordance with Civil Aviation regulations issued by the General Civil Aviation Authority, and in compliance with standards and recommendations as stipulated by the International Civil Aviation Organisation".

A similar exercise was carried out at Al Bateen Executive Airport in the capital in December, while Abu Dhabi International Airport conducted a one-hour evacuation exercise in September.
