Fujairah Airport unveils multimillion dollar expansion plans in collaboration with Abu Dhabi

A multimillion dollar expansion plan is scheduled for Fujairah International Airport (FIA) in a partnership with Abu Dhabi Airports.

Two airport authorities have signed a memorandum of cooperation (MoC) to expand the main airport in Fujairah, as the emirate expects an influx of tourists over the next few years.

The expansion project includes the construction of a new ATC Tower, a parallel runway, expansion of the existing runway to accommodate A380 aircraft, 40MVA 33KV substation, eight connecting taxiways, and a parallel taxiway.

Fujairah International Airport also has airport maintenance repair operations (MRO), and new MRO hangars are under construction to provide overhaul repair for aircraft. There are five wide body aircraft hangars and one 200 x 50m hangar for aircraft repairs.

Fujairah is one of seven emirates that make up the United Arab Emirates, and the only one that has its entire coastline facing the Gulf of Oman.

The modern emirate is separated from the rest of the UAE by the soaring Hajar Mountains. Popular tourist attractions include the Al-Bidyah Mosque, Fujairah Fort and the Heritage Village, Al-Hayl Castle, Sheikh Zayed Mosque, wadis with cascading waterfalls, and the Ain al-Madhab Hot Springs at the foothills of the Hajar Mountains. There are plenty of golden sand beaches where holidaymakers can soak up the sunshine or go scuba diving or snorkelling in the turquoise ocean waters.

The Sheikh Khalifa Highway connects Fujairah to Dubai, making it a popular destination for both business and leisure travellers, and there's a thriving business and commercial district in the city, as well as several new developments including a large shopping mall.

The United Arab Emirates are situated in the Middle East and include the capital Abu Dhabi, the cosmopolitan Dubai with its soaring, unique architecture and luxury hotels, and Ras Al Khaimah with its vast red desert, lush green plains, creeks and sparkling lagoons.
