This is hardly surprising as it is the official airline of the movie, and now this airline will also carry the branding of the movie on its aircraft, as it flies across the world. As it happens, the structure of the midfield has also been decorated with a similar theme to recognise its role in the movie. In fact, one of the film’s most thrilling and technically complex action scenes has been shot on the building’s 315-metre roof! Now it should be mentioned that we are talking about the seventh instalment of the movie which is Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One. This movie is releasing in cinemas on July 13 and will feature purpose-built sets at the airport and even the Etihad First Class Lounge.

In fact, there are also some scenes that have been shot in the Liwa Desert! At this point, it should be mentioned that it took 21 days of preparations and seven days of filming production to shoot the scenes at the Midfield Terminal. For this, 762 cast, crew, and suppliers were involved.
