Travelling between Dubai and Abu Dhabi International Airpot has never been easier

Flying out of the UAE capital soon? There’s a brand new shuttle service to take you from Dubai straight to Abu Dhabi Airport. The just-launched AUH Express transports passengers between Ibn Battuta bus station and the capital’s airport for a wallet-friendly Dhs35. Advanced booking is not required.

The coaches will operate 24/7 on an hourly basis until the end of the year, and are complete with passenger luggage facilities for those travelling with heavy baggage.

RTA will provide the parking spaces and infrastructure needed for the new bus route, while Capital Express will provide the coach buses.
