The Abu Dhabi International Airport has started operations of its newly built VIP terminal that was built in partnership with National Aviation Services (NAS).
The airport said that the terminal will offer passengers using the international airport a world-class experience.
The new 924m² facility will help the airport increase its capacity. The NAS will operate the terminal that currently provides 'Golden Class' services in Terminals 1 and 3.
The terminal can be used by all passengers, regardless of their ticket class or destination and airline by paying a pre-set fee. It will have special facilities that will be separated from the facilities at the other terminals.
It will also offer immigration, police and baggage handling facilities. Passengers will be ferried in Mercedes Benz limousines to and from the terminal and aircraft and will be chaperoned by a special services agent.
Abu Dhabi Airports chairman Ali Majed Al Mansoori said: "The main objective behind this new proposition is to enhance the service level offered at Abu Dhabi International Airport to passengers from all travelling classes.
"Through the new VIP Terminal, Abu Dhabi Airports aims to provide the ultimate in privacy, luxury and security through unique personalised services."
NAS CEO Hassan El-Houry said: "The VIP Terminal will enhance the level of service at the existing Abu Dhabi International Airport and will also provide style and sophistication for travellers, on par with other leading airports around the world.
"With its seamless immigration process, baggage handling services and private limousine services directly to and from the aircraft, the VIP Terminal is set to take 'travel in style' to the next level. It is a moment of pride for everyone involved in the dynamic growth of Abu Dhabi International Airport."
