Sharjah Airport has become a major destination on the international air freight map and, in 2009, the airport was the second largest Middle East air freight hub in cargo tonnage. The airport’s air freight centre is equipped to provide world-class services and facilities to air cargo agents – and it continues to grow.
The airport’s competitive strengths in air cargo operations include Sharjah’s central location within the UAE, thriving economy and aggressive free-trade policies. This is boosted by the airport’s open sky policy, transparency, and competitive landing, handling and ancillary charges. Located next to the Sharjah Airport Free Zone (SAIF Zone), and well-connected to shipper and consignee warehouses in neighbouring emirates, the airport’s freight centre is ideally placed as a distribution point for goods in the region.
