Fujairah International Airport is located next to the city centre of Fujairah City in the Emirate of Fujairah. The airport provides facilities for many different kinds of operation. However, the location close to the city centre means that the airport occupies valuable land, which alternatively could be used for urban development comprising residential areas and areas for industrial and commercial use. Ramboll has undertaken the master planning for the Emirate of Fujairah including the airport.
The airport provides airside, terminal and landside facilities for passenger charter traffic, general aviation traffic and different types of cargo traffic. Furthermore ample space is allocated to long-term aircraft parking and potential dismantling of aircraft. Ramboll carried out a condition
assessment of the present airport infrastructures and a market and traffic assessment including an assessment of competition from Dubai and Abu Dhabi airports. Next Ramboll presented a set of scenarios for development of the airport at the present location and alternatively a relocation of the airport to a new location on reclaimed land along the coast of Fujairah City. The scenarios and the final decision regarding the possible relocation of the airport will be integrated in the overall master plan for the Emirate of Fujairah.
