The brand new Muscat International Airport is now officially open.
Timed to coincide with the Sultanate’s 48th National Day celebrations, the new airport currently has an annual capacity of 20 million passengers, but this could rise to 56 million with future development.
The new airport can accommodate the Airbus A380 and incorporates a 90 room 4-star hotel.
Oman’s Deputy Prime Minister, H.H. Sayyid Fahd bin Mahmoud Al Said, said that Muscat International Airport will “help in attracting more investments to the Sultanate… [and] contribute to achieving many cultural, social and developmental aims of interest for the Omani citizen.”
Elsewhere in the Gulf, Bahrain International Airport’s new terminal is expected to open next September. Furthermore, in a deal signed on the first day of the recent Bahrain International Air Show, the Kingdom announced plans for a new private aviation airport to meet the needs of private jet owners.
