Since 1932, Sharjah International Airport has been the gateway of travel through the UAE, servicing traffic from regional and international destinations.
Today, the airport has grown to accommodate an increasing number of international carriers as well as regional airlines. In 2003, it became the official hub of Air Arabia, the Middle East’s first low-cost carrier, which helped fuel the airport’s traffic as it ventured into new and untapped territories within a five -hour flying radius.
A dynamic, modern and convenient hub, Sharjah International Airport handles arrival and departure formalities completed in just 20 minutes.
The airport is conveniently located just 10 kilometres from Sharjah’s city centre and 15 kilometres from the emirate of Dubai. It is also a few kilometres away from the Northern Emirates of Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, Ras Al-Khaimah and Fujairah.
The airport provides access to the main ports of the Gulf with direct road links to both seaports in Sharjah. It also connects directly to other emirates through the UAE’s modern highways, a convenient commute to city centres, airports and seaports.
