Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates: Etisalat, one of the Middle East's leading telecommunications operators, has opened a 24/7 kiosk in the Arrivals Hall at Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH).

Passengers landing in the UAE's capital will be able to buy a local Etisalat SIM card from the kiosk, which will also offer a range of pre-paid and post-paid products, smart devices and e-Life (home) packages. Existing Etisalat customers can benefit from the installed smart payment machine to settle their bills, or to re-register their accounts.

A specially designed 'Visitor Line' SIM card by Etisalat will be available at the kiosk for arriving passengers for as low as AED100. The 'Visitor Line' has a validity of just 60 days, and customers who purchase this option can subscribe to any of Etisalat's Visitor Line Packs, which are valid for 14 days and can be used to talk, surf and text. The Visitor Line and Visitor Packs can also be recharged multiple times from any Etisalat outlet and authorized retailers across the UAE, through Etisalat's self-care mobile application - Etisalat UAE or by dialing 101 or sending an SMS to 1012.

"Abu Dhabi International Airport is the gateway to the UAE capital and it is our mandate to provide our guests with the highest quality services. The Etisalat outlet is another great facility for passengers arriving into the UAE and a welcome addition to the many premium services we offer here at AUH to enhance the passenger experience," said Daniel Cappell, Abu Dhabi Airports' Acting Chief Commercial Officer.

Suhail Awadi, Vice President Retail Sales' consumer at Etisalat said, "We understand the importance of staying connected with family, friends and work for the millions of visitors who travel to the UAE every year. Etisalat's presence at the Arrivals Hall in the UAE is a great facility not just for visitors arriving in the UAE, but also for returning residents, all of whom now have access to our products and services 24 hours a day, seven days a week, making their stay or return to the country convenient, pleasant and hassle-free."
