Hossam Tallat, General Manager of Sata, said, "Sata is embarking on regional annual road show to seven GCC cities to promote the summer season specials. At an international level, Sata attends annual travel exhibitions arranged in Germany, Turkey, Russia and China to continue raising the profile of Sharjah in the global arena."

"To meet the demand, Sata is due to open its 5th outlet in Sharjah in order to extend its services to the entire emirate as well as surrounding areas" he added. New sections in Sata include special services for Haj and Umrah passengers, as well as offer customised packages to several other segments of passengers either using Air Arabia, the Middle East's first low cost carrier, or other airlines flying out of Sharjah.
