Sharjah Airport on Tuesday said it has completed all preparations to receive stranded UAE residents from abroad, taking all precautionary measures to guarantee the health and safety of travellers, customers and employees.

"Along with our partners and other entities, the airport has completed all the necessary preparations to receive residents who have been stranded abroad during the Covid-19 pandemic. All organisational and operational procedures to ensure the safety of passengers and staff will be adhered to at all times," said Ali Salem Al Midfa, chairman of Sharjah Airport Authority.

He added: "We are delighted to be able to help return residents to their own homes and reunite them with their families and friends. We can only imagine how difficult it must have been to stay away from their loved ones. We will continue our efforts to welcome more residents and families back to the comfort and safety of their homes."

Airport officials also held a series of meetings to discuss and implement the various safety procedures that have been set by the National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority, to ensure health and safety at all airports in the region.

Sharjah Airport Authority continues to carry out daily precautionary cleansing procedures, which includes the implementation of continuous sterilisation works across all airport facilities, aircraft, freight planes and entrance and departure areas.
