Muscat Daily - - NATION -

In a new de­vel­op­ment, the au­thor­i­ties an­nounced that Mus­cat In­ter­na­tional Air­port’s new pas­sen­ger ter­mi­nal is 97 per cent com­plete.

The in­for­ma­tion was re­vealed by an Oman TV re­port pro­duced in co­op­er­a­tion with the Min­istry of Trans­port and Com­mu­ni­ca­tion on the oc­ca­sion of Re­nais­sance Day.

Ac­cord­ing to the re­port, the com­ple­tion is ex­pected soon. The es­ti­mated size of the termi- nal is 580,000sq m. It con­sists of 118 check-in coun­ters, in ad­di­tion to 82 im­mi­gra­tion coun­ters. The ter­mi­nal will also have 40 aer­o­bridges that will al­low pas­sen­gers to di­rectly walk from the ter­mi­nal to the air­craft. For pas­sen­gers, a to­tal of 29 wait­ing halls will be avail­able for depar­tures.

The ter­mi­nal is spread across three wings, the re­port stated.

It is ex­pected that the new air­port will serve 20mn pas­sen­gers per year, which could rise to 48mn in the fu­ture. A four-star ho­tel is also be­ing de­vel­oped.
