About Sharjah

Sharjah Aviation Services is one of the largest air service providers in the region, offering ground, passenger, cargo handling and distribution to all clients operating from Sharjah, online and offline. As handling agent we operate the cargo terminal with a floor area of over 24’000 square meters for cargo handling with the right mix of technology as well as over 8’800 square meters of forwarders and agents’ warehouse floor.

Freighter aircraft parking bays are conveniently located just a few meters away from the facilities, enabling availability timings from on-block to on-the-road of about 60 minutes, which especially for express operators and integrators has proved to be invaluable.

Our Road Feeder Services are continuously being enhanced, providing currently 12 owned rollerbed trucks with a capacity of each 4 x 10Ft Q7 ULD which includes monitored temperature controlled units.

The RFS services are provided scheduled and ad-hoc to the main GCC hubs:

  • Amman (AMM), Dammam (DMM), Jeddah (JED),
  • Kuwait (KWI), Muscat (MCT), Riyadh (RUH);
  • Abu Dhabi (AUH), Dubai (DXB & DWC) as shuttle services
  • Ras Al Khaimah (RKT) linking Air Arabia hubs.

We are committed to investment and continuous improvement of our freight center and services while boosting capacity to keep abreast with fast-moving developments.

With large amounts  recently invested and further large quantities being allocated throughout 2015 – 2018 in an ambitious plan to develop Sharjah as a true Next Generation Hub, Sharjah is positioning itself not only as the regional alternative but also as a forerunner and trendsetter, with regional novelties in products and services.  

As part of this development, Sharjah Aviation Services became the first GHA in the Middle East and Africa to be awarded IATA’s CEIV Pharma certificate for its airside ramp and warehousing activities, pioneering once more the quality handling and innovation in the region, setting the bar high for others to follow.

The new infrastructure contributes and will contribute and enhance competence in line with the growing diversity of clients and cargo handled at the airport. Presently it serves over 250 companies and airlines and to quote a few prominent online operators are Lufthansa Cargo, AeroLogic, DHL, Singapore Airlines, Etihad Cargo, Atlas Air, Ethiopian Airlines, Saudi Arabian Airlines, Cargolux, Egypt Air, Southern Airlines are among the many international freighter airlines operating from Sharjah International Airport to various key destinations also connecting them regionally with our reliable RFS services.

Additionally, most international operators serving other airports in the region entrust Sharjah Aviation Services with the handling of their offline cargo as well as RFS activities.

Sharjah is also home base for several freighter charter operators such as RUS Aviation, Unique Air, Aerotrans Cargo ATC, Eagle Air, AHS, etc.

As Air Arabia's home-base we provide bespoke hub handling and expertise supporting the further development of Air Arabia's cargo services.
