People flying into Abu Dhabi will be landing at an amazing new terminal.

Travellers planning to take flights to Abu Dhabi in the future could be left feeling very impressed by their stay before they have even left the airport.

The Abu Dhabi Government has approved the construction of the new Midfield Terminal Complex, which has a futuristic design.

Abu Dhabi Airports Company announced it had received news that the new terminal can be constructed, which will become the primary gateway into Abu Dhabi and the new home of national airline Etihad Airways.

It is expected the airport will be ready to use from the first half of 2017.

On completion, the site will be the largest airport in Abu Dhabi, covering 630,000 and 702,369 square metres in size, as well as being visible from more than 1.5 km away.

A range of improvements to transport are being planned which will benefit people who took flights to Abu Dhabi, with tram lines also to be laid across the emirate.
