That is true, ADH is blessed with having virtually no constraints. But in my opinion the Midfield Terminal exterior looks better than the latest proposals for DWC.

Solar-powered plane attempts first round-the-world flight



Quote:
(CNN)The Solar Impulse 2 took off from Abu Dhabi on Monday on the first leg of its quest to be the first plane to fly around the world fueled only by the sun's rays.

The solar-powered plane is expected to take 12 hours to reach its first pit stop, in Muscat, Oman, before flying to India, Myanmar, China and on to the U.S.

The 400-kilometer (250 mile) first-leg flight is part of a marathon 35,000-kilometer journey, which is expected to take as long as five months.

The potentially historic flight had been due to take off on March 1 but was delayed by concerns about the weather. Strong dust storms created hazy conditions but by Monday morning the skies had cleared sufficiently for takeoff.

"We have had a lot of sandstorms in Abu Dhabi, and also a lot of wind, sea breezes, higher than the limit," said the team's meterologist Luc Truellemans in an interview posted on Twitter and YouTube.

DXB was always space constrained but in terms of location, DXB is perfect - right in the center of the city.

Well there are constraints. Like there is no room for a third runway, although both runways are parallel so AUH won't need a third runway for a long time.

Good to know the Terminal 1 segregation tunnel will open this month. It was something which has been required for years.

FYI I just changed the thread title to AUH | Abu Dhabi International Airport so that any news and discussions related to that airport can be posted here.
