Travel Information


Sharjah International Airport is situated ten minutes away from the centre of the city and has recently undergone a major expansion to keep pace with the increasing number of passengers and growing cargo business.

In 2003, Air Arabia was ranked the first low-cost airline to be launched in the Middle East and North Africa region and now flies to over 60 destinations. In early 2009 Air Arabia Maroc began operations from Casablanca airport providing services domestically in Morocco and throughout Europe.

In line with its aim of ensuring customer satisfaction, the Airport provides facilities and services to the passengers that are in keeping with the highest standards. There is the extremely good attraction of “duty free” shopping within the airport.

The duty free boasts world class brand names, at prices, which are extremely reasonable as compared with most other outlets in the world. To cope with the dramatic increase in traffic, Sharjah International Airport has embarked on a four-fold expansion project both airside and land side to ensure the excellence of service quality provided to airlines and passengers using Sharjah International Airport.
