The Sharjah International Airport is set for a major upgrade to expand facilities and improve systems at the emirates major airport.

According to WAM, the 190,000m2 project is the largest phase of a series of expansion projects with a total cost of $650 million (AED2.4 billion), expected to be completed in 2027.

The terminal expansion project costs approximately $336 million (AED1.235 billion) and is expected to raise the airport’s capacity to handle 20 million passengers annually. The expansion will separate the arrivals from the departures, and renew systems and facilities.

New facilities at the airport will include more self-check-in machines, electronic boarding gates, waiting lounges, food courts, and a hotel for transit passengers.

Watch officials from Sharjah Sea Ports and Customs, Sharjah International Airport Authority, Department of Civil Aviation, and other government entities lay the foundation stone for the project at the site of the Sharjah airport.

Previously, Bechtel and Parsons were awarded contracts for masterplanning and pre-design, design and construction phases, as well as the delivery phase of the airport expansion project.

Phases of the Sharjah airport’s expansion project have subsequently come online over the years, such as an expansion of the east wing, a new entrance, and surrounding roads.
