I am traveling from Beirut, Lebanon to Incheon, South Korea via Abu Dhabi. The itinerary says that I have to go from T1 to T3 for my transit. The maps I have downloaded say I have to go through security checks twice: once at T1 and another at T3. Is this true or will I be allowed to go without a second check?
All international passengers arriving at Abu Dhabi airport have to go through security once. After that you can check your next airline on the screen or printed boarding pass which terminal to go.
There would be only 1 security when you will be entering and after passing there would be no additional security again
I recently travelled Ahmedabad to Los Angeles. They did 3 security check ins on Abu Dhabi airport - don't know why. :)
I have to also clear CBP Customs for US also in the Abu Dhabi Airport. I wish this could be less time wasting but we don't want to negotiate with security too, as good cosmopolitan.
From the official website of the airport:
In order to ensure the highest levels of passenger security, each terminal has a security check area at each point of entry, so you will need to go through security again if you have moved between terminals.
