Sharjah made aviation history in 1932 when the emirate’s first flight landed on the Al Mahatta runway. Sharjah Airport opened 45 years later – and it has never looked back. With a runway that is capable of accommodating the largest aircraft in the world, we have quickly expanded to become a world-class, state-of-the-art international airport.
Home to an increasing number of international carriers and regional airlines, we have an open sky policy that allows airline traffic from across the world hassle-free access to the airport. We also have the longest runway in the region at 4,060m, which is Code F and has Cat II capabilities. All aircraft up to the A380 can land and take off with full load capacity during all weather conditions.
We offer the most competitive landing and handling rates in the region, making us popular with both global and local operators.
Furthermore, we have emerged as an important air cargo hub for many of the world’s major carriers.
In terms of location, we are just 10 km from Sharjah city centre, a 20-minute drive from Dubai, and within easy reach of the Northern Emirates.
