Airports Kinesis Consulting (AKC) has prepared for the client a complete masterplan evaluation and design for the expansion of Sharjah Airport our study was for the purpose of initiating the discussion on the potential utilization of Sharjah International Airport as an economic motor for the development of the Emirate of Sharjah.
Based on independent research and information gathered through the ACI, IATA and ICAO organizations and references obtained, our company has made a complete evaluation on the forecast traffic in order to see if the existing terminal is capable to handle the actual traffic and support the upcoming traffic.
Our evaluation of traffic forecasts as well as a complete evaluation of available data for the Emirate of Sharjah confirms that the current facilities of Sharjah International was not only are not capable of handling future traffic growth but are limiting the development of the economic benefit that the airport could have on economic and social growth of the Emirate of Sharjah.
The results of this forecast have presented a strong case for the future development of Sharjah International Airport and we have undertaken initial studies to present this case.
The result of our studies and our evaluation was very clear about the fact that an expansion of the existing airport is necessary and should occur in a systematic and Phased approach which guarantees competitiveness of the airport within the UAE.
The evaluation also concluded that to remain competitive and take advantage of the opportunities available a new terminal development to the north of existing facilities would be economical and advantageous.
