Sharjah International Airport is to upgrade its check-in systems to cope with increasing demand from passengers.

The airport experienced a 36% rise in passenger traffic last year leading to the decision for SITA to implement upgrades that will support 105 check-in counters and workstations.

"There has been a tremendous 36% growth in passenger traffic over the last year, partly because we are now the home base for the Middle East's first low-cost carrier, Air Arabia, which is experiencing great success," said Dr Ghanem Al Hajri, chairman, Sharjah Aviation Services.

"SITA is helping us to drive business transformation through the smart deployment of IT systems tailored to our customers' specific needs and we have now decided to upgrade to AirportConnect CUTE (Common Use Terminal Equipment), a web-enabled version of CUTE as part of our overall airport expansion plan," he added.
