Sharjah Airport Travel Agency (SATA), a key player in promoting the emirate of Sharjah, has seen a recent 20% increase in passenger numbers in the first half of 2006, resulting in a 25% rise in revenues compared to 2005 figures, across Middle East and subcontinent routes.
General manager of SATA, Hossam Tallat, said that Air Arabia has created a new market of consumers who prefer to holiday on a low-fares package.
“Side by side, the expansion of Air Arabia network has also created new destinations to use as holiday packages like Istanbul and Sri Lanka,” he said.
“At an international level, SATA attends annual travel exhibitions arranged in Germany, Turkey, Russia and China to continue raising the profile of Sharjah in the global arena.”For all the latest transport news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
