Captain Ismail Al Balushi, director-general of Fujairah International Airport, said this step came in line with efforts to boost travel options to and from the emirate and meet the growing demand for local and regional trips.

"We are working to provide a comfortable travel experience [with] quick clearance procedures [to] enhance the travel experience to and from the emirate," Al Balushi said.

Last July, Fujairah Airport announced that it would connect Fujairah to 18 new destinations, in cooperation with Oman's SalamAir.
