The Authority was keen to participate this year, in order to highlight its latest services for partners, customers and passengers, along with the expansion projects that will increase the Airport’s capacity so that it can accommodate more passengers and aviation companies during the upcoming season.
Regarding the travel show, Ali Salim Al Midfa, Chairman of the Sharjah Airport Authority, said, “MITT is one of the most important exhibitions, and Sharjah Airport is excited to participate every year. It is a great opportunity to meet and communicate with travel and tourism companies from around the world, especially those from the Russian travel market, at a time when Russian tourists are increasingly interested in visiting Sharjah.
“The SAA’s participation in these exhibitions and in other local and international events is part of joint efforts to promote the Emirate of Sharjah as an ideal destination for tourism, business and culture, and to showcase Sharjah Airport’s services and facilities for current and potential customers,” he added.
