How to get from Abu Dhabi Airport to City Centre
There are two transfer options available from Abu Dhabi Airport (AUH) to the city centre of Abu Dhabi. The first, quickest and most comfortable option for transport is by hiring an Abu Dhabi airport taxi. There are two types of taxis available at the airport; luxury or standard vehicles which differ in services and flag-fall fares. A standard taxi will cost around 19€ (80AED) to get you into the city centre and the journey should only take around 24 minutes. Public transport buses are available also at a much cheaper cost. There are two different bus options taking you to slightly different parts of the city centre, but they will both cost around 1€ (4AED) and take at least an hour to get you to the city as they have multiple stops.
