Sharjah International Airport has said it will see an influx of 200 additional weekly flights, as airlines commence their summer schedule, Gulf News has reported. The increase in weekly flights will come from a mixture of commercial and cargo operations including Sri Lankan Airlines, Qatar Airways and Saudia Cargo, said the airport. Runway repairs at Dubai International are likely to be adding to the rise in numbers. Sharjah International reported an 8% increase in passenger traffic over the first quarter with 2.25 million passengers travelling through the airport.
