Sharjah Airport Sets New Rules for Baggage Delivery

In accordance with the new policy, the Airport will no longer accept bags that have the potential to impede airport security processes. As per the new policy, only bags that are up to 75 cm high, 60 cm wide, and 90 cm long with at least one surface level will be allowed. Non-compliant items such as two items wrapped together will be rejected on arrival, either directly or through the Sharjah Aviation Services.

Bags that go beyond the set specifications may be brought to the desk for oversized baggage. This will be processed based on the airline’s weight allowance and on prior arrangements with the Sharjah Aviation Services.

The initiative comes in line with the airport’s introduction of its new identity. The initiative aims to enhance Sharjah Airport’s service efficiency which includes baggage transport services, as part of the key areas for boosting the facility’s competitiveness in the region, as well as the airlines that operate with them. The initiative aims to promote passenger loyalty, which in effect, will strengthen the airport’s bid towards becoming an important hub in the aviation industry in the region.
