Fujairah International Airport wants to be perceived as more than just the No 1 diversionary airport for Dubai and Sharjah.

The airport is a regular participant at Dubai, marketing its strategic location and adjacent seaport that help make it a natural choice for airline technical stops and freight operations.

The personal touch is a priority for the emirate's airport authority, which points out passengers often find themselves settled in the back of a taxi 10min after leaving the aircraft on the way to the city centre, which is just a minute away from the airport.

Fujairah additionally boasts clear skies and an open skies policy as twin incentives to generate more interest in its international airport.
