The Midfield Terminal Building (MTB) project is hoped to make Abu Dhabi International one of the world’s largest airports.

Stretching over 742,000 square metres, the MTB will be the largest in the emirate of Abu Dhabi and will be visible from more than 1.5 kilometres away. It will house 65 aircraft gates, eight exclusively earmarked for Airbus A380 aircraft, and have 3,500 square metres of duty-free zones. The new terminal will have the capability of handling 8,500 passengers and 19,000 bags per hour and over 4,300 CCTV cameras for security.

Abu Dhabi Airports’ chairman, H.E Sheikh Mohammed Bin Hamad Bin Tahnoon Al Nahyan, said: “The Midfield Terminal is one of the region’s most significant aviation infrastructure projects, and it is only fitting that it will now be home to one of the region’s most successful international conglomerates. Lulu Group will make a significant contribution to our long-term retail strategy, and we look forward to working closely with them in the coming months and years.”

Lulu chairman, Yusuff Ali M.A., continued: “We are really excited and proud to have been awarded retail space in the upcoming world-class new Midfield Terminal at Abu Dhabi International Airport. Our legacy of more than 4 decades in the retail industry across UAE, GCC & other parts of world will surely hold us in great esteem to come up with a trend-setting retail ambiance both in terms of design and product offerings.”
