Abu Dhabi airport marks Pakistan, India Independence Days

ABU DHABI, August 15, 2017

Passengers travelling to or coming from Pakistan or India this week were treated to terminal-wide festivities at Abu Dhabi International Airport, marking the Pakistan Independence Day on August 14, and the India Independence Day on August 15.

The celebrations included a flash mob that surprised passengers arriving from various destinations in both countries. Passengers also had the opportunity to take photos in front of the famous “Wagah Border”, which is a tradition that reflects the close relations between the two communities. Both Terminal 1 and 3 were carrying the flags and colours of both countries in a tribute to those nations.

Abu Dhabi Duty Free and several of its concessionaires also joined in with many offers and discounts over the two days, including Sharaf DG, Pure Gold, and the airport’ lounges operated by Plaza Premium. In addition, the VIP Terminal chose 50 lucky passengers and gave them the opportunity to experiment the luxury travel experience they have on offer.

Acting chief executive officer, Abdul Majeed Al Khoori said: “Abu Dhabi Airports is honoured to take part in the national celebrations of these two dear nations. India and Pakistan have been strong travel markets for Abu Dhabi International Airport, being one of the top regions from the Capital’s airport, and generating together on average 22 per cent of its annual passengers.” - TradeArabia News Service
