The airport handled 22,210 flights, an increase of 5.64 percent while the volume of air freight through Sharjah exceeded 32,220 tonnes.
The increase in passenger numbers was driven primarily by the new destinations and flights added by airlines, particularly Air Arabia, plus the development of services such as smart gates.
“This has strengthened the airport’s standing in terms of incoming and outgoing flights in the UAE. This also reflects the success and efficiency of Sharjah Airport’s procedures, which have attracted new airlines and boosted interest in travelling through the airport and benefitting from its services.”
