Sharjah International Airport was opened on January 1st 1977 and is located 10 km (6.21 miles) south-east of the center of the city and about 15 km (9.31 miles) from Dubai. The airport is located opposite to the Sharjah University and is positioned at latitude 25 19 N, longitude 55 30 E. Sharjah was the first emirate to contain an airfield, which was build in 1932 by Imperial Airways (British Airways) as a stopover for flights to India and Australia. The airfield was handed over to the Sharjah government when the British influence left the area in 1968.

Sharjah Intl. Airport has only one runway which extends 4km (2.5 miles), 1 passenger terminal, 4 cargo terminals, 25 aircraft stands, and 8 departure gates. The passenger terminal contains prayer areas, a travel agency, internet facilities, restaurants, postal services, money exchanges, a medical clinic, and duty free shopping. The airport also started providing a special attention service from 2001 called Hala Services. Though the airport handles passenger aircrafts, the airport is known more for its air cargo facilities.
