Sharjah...Whats The Go?

Fri Aug 25, 2006 9:13 am

ok...so the ramp is still closed to photography, does anyone have a good idea of when it's likely to reopen? planning on doing a tour to Iran in november via Dubai, would like to factor in Sharjah if it's remotely possible.

I have only been the once but was told that ramp access would not be available this year (if at all). I have just received information on organised tours for the Dubai Airshow NEXT year and they do not mention ramp access at Sharjah either.
The airport is actually pretty quiet and I suspect that photography conditions would be dire without such access.

Have a look here
