The city of Abu Dhabi sits at the head of a T-shaped island jutting into the Gulf off the central western coast of the UAE. The Emirate of Abu Dhabi represents over 85% of the total area of the UAE.
The airport is on the mainland, about 30km (18.6mi) north-east of the centre. The main business district is barely 1 sq km (0.4 sq mi), bounded by Shaikh Khalifa bin Zayed and Istiglal Sts to the north, Zayed the Second St to the south, Khalid bin al-Walid St to the west and As Salam St to the east.
