Air Arabia ‘City Check-in Terminal’ opens in Safeer Mall, Sharjah
Passengers can now drop-off baggage and receive boarding pass up to 24 hours before flight
· Provides daily express shuttle services between Safeer Mall and Sharjah Airport
Sharjah, UAE; November, 23, 2013: Air Arabia, the first and largest low-cost carrier (LCC) in the Middle East and North Africa, announced today the launch of its “Sharjah City Check-in Terminal” in Safeer Mall, Sharjah. Located on Dubai-Sharjah Highway, the facility is Air Arabia’s third check-in service outside of an airport, following the launch of City Check-in facilities in Dubai and Ras Al Khaima last year.
The new facility in Safeer Mall is equipped to accept baggage from passengers, which is then sent straight to Sharjah International Airport. Passengers can check-in 24 hours before their flight, and up to 4 hours before departure.
Checked-in passengers, who can choose seats for their flight, will receive their boarding passes, as well as claim tags for any checked-in luggage, meaning they only need to reach the airport to proceed to their flight. “Sharjah City Check-in Terminal” in Safeer Mall is currently operational, and will be accessible seven days a week, from 9 am to 10 pm.
“Air Arabia is committed to introducing services that offer real value and convenience to customers,” said Adel Ali, Group Chief Executive Officer, Air Arabia. “Our new ‘City Check-in Terminal facility’ will be a great value addition for our passengers based in Sharjah, helping to reduce the amount of time they need to spend at the airport and making the process of flying a total hassle free experience.”
In an effort to offer increased convenience for passengers travelling from Sharjah, Air Arabia will provide four daily express shuttle services to the Airport at a nominal fee of AED10 each way.
