Sharjah International Airport has received the first Russian Airline flight from Saint Petersburg and Ekaterinburg in Russia, as two flights weekly are due to land from October 2017 until March 2018.

The Boeing 737-800 aircrafts will touch down every Sunday and Thursday at Sharjah International Airport.

A reception was held for the aircraft crew and Russian Airline officials, hosted by HE Ali Salim Al Midfa, Chairman of Sharjah Airport Authority, and H.E Sheikh Faisal bin Saoud Al Qassimi, Director of Sharjah Airport Authority, with managers and officials from both organisations.

Ali Salim Al Midfa, said, “This flight connection reflects Sharjah Airport’s strategically important location. Sharjah has increased demand by tourists from Russia, especially since they have been granted UAE Entry Visas at all ports. Such flights contribute to establishing Sharjah as a center for tourism, culture and business and to attracting more visitors, both holiday makers and business people, from Russia to Sharjah.”

Sheikh Faisal bin Saoud Al Qassimi, said, “We welcome the first flight of Russian Airlines. There is no doubt that such flights will increase various options and destinations of travel through Sharjah International Airport and will provide tourists from Russia with the opportunity to discover the historic and cultural sights of Sharjah and to benefit from the great level of hospitality and entertainment on offer here.”
