Details of Sharjah International Airport's $410m (AED1.5bn) revamp have been revealed.
To be implemented in multiple phases, the airport's expansion will feature key projects, such as the expansion of the local road network that serves the airport.
The airport's passenger terminal will witness "massive expansion" over the next four years, increasing the overall facility's capacity to 20 million passengers by 2027.
Smart gateways will also be installed as part of the revamp.
Ali Salem Al Midfa, chairman of Sharjah International Airport Authority (SIAA), said the operator's smart travel initiative would provide "an easy and quick experience for travellers".
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.
