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

Flying out of the UAE capital soon? There’s a shuttle service to take you from Dubai straight to Abu Dhabi Airport. The 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 operate 24/7 on an hourly basis and are complete with passenger luggage facilities for those travelling with heavy baggage.

In September 2022, Dubai’s Road and Transport Authority (RTA) signed an agreement with Capital Express for the AUH Express Bus service, which will offer drop-offs at Abu Dhabi Airport Terminal 1, 2 and 3. RTA will provide the parking spaces and infrastructure needed for the new bus route, while Capital Express will provide the coach buses.
