Oman Air has started its operations from Muscat International Airport and all incoming and outgoing flights have transferred from the current terminal to the new airport.
The new airport opening has been eagerly anticipated and, as a key stakeholder, Oman Air is operating up to 200 flights per day from the new state-of-the-art new terminal.
Muscat International Airport has been designed to be a shining symbol of the modern state of Oman. The hub is a significant boost to Oman’s already flourishing travel sector as it will have the capacity to handle 12 million passengers per year and its runway will be able accommodate the world’s largest aircraft, the Airbus A380, and independent parallel operation. The airport also has a number of facilities including 6,000 square metres of Duty Free shopping, 96 check-in counters, 8,000 parking spaces and a 90-room airside hotel.
