Smart gateways will also be installed as part of the revamp.

Al Midfa said the airport's expansion would "significantly boost and multiply" the number of passengers visiting Sharjah. 

SIAA showcased its plans during the UAE Innovation Month in the emirate, Arabian Business reported. 

Parsons was awarded a $410m (AED1.5bn) project management contract for the expansion of Sharjah International Airport in March 2017.

The company's contract included the pre-design, design, and construction phases, as well as the delivery phase of the project.
