As Sharjah Airport passed the 12-million passenger mark last year – a rise of 6% y/y, authorities are accelerating the construction of a second terminal.
Last year, Sharjah’s home carrier Air Arabia added seven new destinations: Bodrum, Izmir, Grozny, Qabala (Azerbaijan), Sulaymaniyah (Iraq) and Prague. New airlines flying to Sharjah in 2018 included Pegasus Airlines, Pakistan International Airlines, Cham Wings Airlines (Syria) and Jordan Aviation.
Approval was recently given for the airport’s expansion; the first phase includes two departure halls and two passport control areas to maintain passenger flow. The project will be nished in the third quarter of 2022. Sharjah Airport Authority (SAA) will expand the terminal building to provide capacity for 20 million passengers by 2025.
