UAE: Airport announces two-month closure

For more than two months, Abu Dhabi’s Al Bateen Executive Airport will be closed for runway upgrades.

The extension, which will take place from May 11 to July 20, would allow the airport to accommodate larger planes, according to Abu Dhabi Airports.

During the renovation, only helicopters are permitted to use the airport.

According to authorities, full operation at the airport, which primarily handles private jets, is anticipated to return on July 21.

In the Middle East and North Africa region, Al Bateen Executive Airport is the first dedicated private jet airport (Mena).

Until Abu Dhabi International Airport opened in 1982, the airport served as the capital’s first principal airport. Al Bateen was converted into a military airbase in 1983, and it remained that way until the end of 2008 when ADAC took over control of the airport’s operations and renovated it into a world-class executive airport.

The airport currently features a stand that can accommodate up to 50 private planes, with quick turnarounds and low taxi durations. Al Jaber Aviation, Falcon Aviation Services, and Rotana Jet are among the airlines that already fly out of the airport. KMB/Expat Media
