Sharjah Airport: Connecting Communities Since 1932

Sharjah made aviation history in 1932, when the first flight to the emirate landed at the Al Mahatta runway. Since then Sharjah Airport has been proving itself a modern airport providing world class services through a series of ground-breaking initiatives.

Sharjah Airport’s strategic location, midway between the Fareast and Europe, its “Open Sky Policy” which permits all Airlines Traffic rights without any hindrance, the proximity to Dubai and the Northern Emirates, are the key USPs. Sharjah Airport boasts the most competitive rates in terms of landing and handling, has an un-congested ramp, supported with modern equipment and infrastructure to handle aircraft of all types, complemented by professional, efficient and courteous staff.

The Airport has the newest and one of the longest runways (4060 meters) in the region, this enables all aircraft, up to the A380, to land and take off with full load capacity during all weather conditions. The airport also offers the most competitive landing and handling rates in the region making it popular with both large and small operators.

Under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Mohammad Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah, Sharjah Airport Authority (SAA) has implemented a comprehensive airport expansion plan at a cost of AED 1.5 billion. The plan includes the expansion of the terminal building and increasing the airport’s capacity to 20 million passengers by 2025.
