In response to this growing trend, ADAC decided to launch a highly sophisticated and practical mobile website that would exceed customer expectations and enhance travellers experience at the Capital’s airport.”

To complement this new innovation, the mobile website has also introduced a personalised SMS and email alert to communicate any flight changes directly and quickly to passengers.

“The introduction of the mobile site is part of a wider strategy to improve passenger’s access to information through utilizing the most advanced tools and methods of communications, and comes as a second step following the recent launch of the brand new airport website www.abudhabiairport.ae. Both new websites introduce a range of innovative features designed to deliver a highly personalised and tailored experience to each and every passenger and visitor at Abu Dhabi International Airport,” Al Hashimi concluded.
