Abu Dhabi City Terminal check in charges

Abu Dhabi airport is one of the few airports in the world which offers check in via a city terminal in Abu Dhabi city for its major airlines which is also known as Remote check in. This service makes life easier for passengers to check in their luggage early over here and make their way free and conveniently to the airport. The city check in terminal usually opens 24hours before the flight and closes the check in 5 hours before your flight departure. The Abu Dhabi city check in terminal also provides baggage services such as sealing, wrapping and packaging to all the passengers using the service.

Please note that this city terminal check in or remote access check in does not accommodate US bound travelers, guests with special needs, reduced mobility, minors who are unaccompanied, travelling on wait-listed flight tickets and passengers travelling on airline staff tickets or staff discounts.
