Pilgrims Set off from Sharjah Airport

Pilgrims flew out from Sharjah Airport bound for Mekkah, Saudi Arabia for the upcoming Haj season. In cooperation with Sharjah Airport Medical Center, Sharjah Islamic Affairs and University Hospital Sharjah and in line with its continuous efforts to ensure a smooth experience for pilgrims, Sharjah Airport, provided health assessment and checkups for all pilgrims including transit passengers who were received and greeted by HE Sheikh Faisal bin Saoud Al Qassimi, Director of Sharjah Airport Authority.

The pilgrims departed after receiving various arrangements from Sharjah airport in collaboration with its partners from the passports control department, customs, police and airlines. A designated lounge, additional check-in kiosks, vehicles to transport the luggage and additional dedicated staffs were allocated to help pilgrims to have a comfortable and safe experience.

The arrangements provided by the airport were offered to all pilgrims including transit passengers. Sharjah Airport is an important transit point for Hajj trips to Saudi Arabia due to its strategic location.

HE Ali Salim Al Midfa, Chairman of Sharjah Airport Authority, said “In line with the directives of HH Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah, we are keen to cooperate with our partners and stakeholders and take all necessary measures to ensure a smooth experience for pilgrims from departure to arrival whilst maintaining the highest standard of services.”

Al Midfa pointed out that recently, Sharjah Airport Authority held meetings with strategic partners including The Department of Civil Aviation in Sharjah, Hajj & Umrah Offices, Sharjah Aviation Services, Facilities Department, Passport Control Department and the Police in order to exchange suggestions and ensure the comfort of pilgrims at all levels.

HE Sheikh Faisal bin Saoud Al Qassimi, Director of Sharjah Airport Authority, explained, “The pilgrimage season this year coincides with the summer vacation, which requires double efforts to balance between streamlining and facilitating the procedures while maintaining the highest levels of safety and security.” He pointed out that Sharjah Airport provides a guide including all of the necessary information to enable pilgrims to travel comfortably and easily, and these procedures will continue until the pilgrims’ return during Eid al-Adha.

Pilgrims expressed their appreciation to Sharjah Airport Authority’s employees for the ease of procedures and the instructions that made it easy to find the places and gates allocated to them from the moment they arrived at the Airport.

Sharjah Airport is always seeking to improve the level of services offered to passengers, and serve with the highest standards especially during high seasons such as the Hajj, with the provision of additional flights to accommodate the increase in the number of passengers during this period of the year.
