| BEST WAY DOWNTOWN:
The airport is located 20 miles (32 km) east of the center of Abu Dhabi. A tourist information desk located in the lobby is open 24 hours a day.
Taxi fare to the center of the city will cost about 60 dirham ($16) and the trip will take about 35 minutes. To avoid unpleasant surprises, confirm the fare with the driver before you accept the ride. Airport taxis are orange and white, while the taxis you hail in the city are gold and white.
Car rental companies such as Alghazal will arrange to have you driven from the airport to the city. The ride is far more comfortable than in a taxi, but you'll pay for the extra comfortabout 110 dirham ($30).
Alghazal, Avis, Budget, Europcar, Hertz, and other local companies have offices at the airport.
