Sheikh Faisal bin Saud Al Qasimi, director of Sharjah Airport Authority, and Dr Oleksandr Khomyak, Consul of Ukraine in Dubai, were also present on the occasion.

Ramy Aziz, CEO of (Tees Tour) Group in the UAE and a number of officials from strategic partners at Sharjah Airport also attended the event.

“We welcome Bees Airlines to Sharjah Airport and appreciate their choice in selecting Sharjah as a base and destination to add more traveling options for travellers between the two destinations. An elevated travel experience with our added range of integrated services provided by the airport, including a wider network of regional and international destinations, as well as opportunities to discover tourist and recreational attractions reflect our cultural heritage in the Emirate of Sharjah,” said Ali Salim Al Midfa.

“With our airport’s continuous efforts in infrastructure development, Sharjah Airport is now considered one of the major hubs within the global travel and tourism map. The airport continues to work to enhance its leading position by strengthening its relationship with existing partners and attracting new partners. We strive to provide a safe, smooth, and enjoyable experience for customers during all stages of their journey,” he added.

Promoting tourism activity

Ramy Aziz of Tez Tour, said his company will continue cooperation with its partners at Sharjah Airport, and their continuous support to enhance tourism activity in the Emirate by attracting more visitors from all over the world, especially from Ukraine, whose citizens consider the UAE one of the main destinations to visit in the region.

“We will work to provide opportunities for more Ukrainian tourists to visit the UAE, and in return enable citizens and residents of the country to visit Ukraine, through regular flights that will depart to and from the two countries through Sharjah Airport,” he added.

The company seeks to take advantage of the increasing route demands and will be operating a Boeing 737-800 on a twice a week schedule every Monday and Saturday at 3 pm.

Bees Air has chosen Sharjah Airport due to its strategic location, services provided in accordance with the highest international standards, and quality infrastructure, which helps the aviation company continue its plans of expansion in the region. Additionally, the advanced tourism system, cultural, and entertainment components showcases the diversity that Sharjah enjoys as a tourist destination.

Sharjah Airport continues to provide the best services and facilities to all companies operating in it, to ensure a smooth flow of operations. This step reflects the upward path that the airport has started to achieve, both in terms of passenger numbers and air cargo movement.
