Default Dubai to Abu Dhabi Airport..

Hi,

I'm picking up a friend from AD airport in the morning, and have no idea where it is! I've been told its not that close to AD, am I right?

I've actually never driven to AD before, but I'm thinking if I head in that direction on SZ Road, then I will eventually see signs to the airport.

Am I wrong and going to get horribly lost?

I've tried looking for maps online, but my work computer blocks most sites and pictures

Thanks

Head down SZR towards Abu Dhabi, it's a straight road all the way.

Once you get into Abu Dhabi speed cameras are set to 160kph (you can tell you are in Abu Dhabi as speed cameras face away from you).

Airport is sign posted once you get closer to Abu Dhabi. Shouldn't take longer than an hour.

From DIC it takes me an hour and a half maximum to get to Etisalat (near to Corniche), that is going through the city rather than coast road.

A friend here at Christmas had limo service from Abu Dhabi airport to Al Qasr in less than an hour.
