Abu Dhabi Airports, the operator for Abu Dhabi International Airport in the UAE, has launched a number of initiatives to help prepare for the influx of passengers flying to and from King Abdulaziz International Airport in Saudi Arabia for the Hajj season.

Abu Dhabi Airports and Abu Dhabi Health Services (SEHA) will provide extra manpower to ensure that the health and safety needs of travelers are met from the start of their holy journey to Mecca. The airport is also working closely with all its stakeholders such as airport police, immigration and customs, to deliver a hassle-free experience to all passengers.

Pilgrims traveling from Abu Dhabi International Airport will have the opportunity to enjoy food and beverage vouchers while waiting for their flights to Saudi Arabia. There will also be a fully equipped dedicated Hajj clinic at the airport in case of emergencies.

Ahmed Al Haddabi, chief operations officer at Abu Dhabi Airports, said, “We are honored to support pilgrims as they embark on their journey from Abu Dhabi International Airport to Saudi Arabia and we hope they find these initiatives useful. Hajj is a highly significant and demanding occasion so it’s very important for measures to be in place to help travelers minimize stress during their trips. We wish them a safe and peaceful pilgrimage to the holy city and look forward to welcoming them on their return.”
