Sharjah International 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 International Airport has been proving itself a modern airport providing world class services through a series of groundbreaking initiatives.

Sharjah International Airport believes in building bridges on the ground and in the air. As such, it has an open sky policy, which allows airline traffic from all over the world hassle-free access to the airport.

In addition, the airport inaugurated its newest runway in 2014. It is one of the region's longest at 4060 meters with Cat II capabilities. This enables all aircraft, including the double-decker, wide body Airbus A380, to land and take offwith 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.

Furthermore, SIA has also emerged as an important air cargo hub for many of the world's major carriers. Strategically located, SIA has a unique location which is just 10 km away from Sharjah city centre and about 20 minutes drive from nearby Emirates and also within easy reach ofthe Northern Emirates.

SIA provides access to the main ports of the Gulf with direct road links to both the seaports of Sharjah.

The airport also plays a significant role in the Sharjah economy; and it has been instrumental in developing the emirate as a centre of trade and commerce. The airport has established a reputation for providing quality services and a competitive value proposition that has continued to attract a growing number of passengers, as well as airline and cargo shipment clients, eachyear

Under the directives of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan Bin Mohammad Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah,Sharjah International Airport launched an expansion plan in 2017 due for co mpletion in 2027,increasing passengercapacityto 25 million.

Sharjah Airport Authority (SAA) is committed to manage Sharjah International Airport (SIA) in a highly professional mannerthat seeks to achieve a high level of safety and customer satisfaction in the delivery of all its service products through the application of continuous improvement programmes & the implementation of a formal Integrated Management System (IMS).

Environment Initiatives

Sharjah International Airport maintains stringent environmental standards to ensure that its carbon footprint is maintained at a minimum. This includes minimizing pollution, using energy and other resources efficiently, implementing “recycle and reuse” policies, and continually improving its operational performance standards.

SIA already has a well-established, certified ISO14001-2015 Environmental Management System.

The importance of reducing greenhouse gas emissions along with a sustainable operational model is of paramount importance; and the airport consistently seeks initi at i ves to  broaden its environmentally-friendlyoperations.

This includes the Airport Carbon Accreditation Programme,a n internationally recognized accolade awarded to Sharjah International Airport for mapping its carbon footprint as well as securing its commitment to reduce carbon emissions under the auspices of the Airports Council International (ACI).

The airport, in fact, is the second in the entire region to achieve the Airport Carbon  Accreditation ' Level-2 Reduction' bythe ACI in April 2016.
