Times of Oman - - FRONT PAGE - Times News Ser­vice

The park­ing fees for the short-term park­ing at the New Mus­cat In­ter­na­tional Air­port pas­sen­ger ter­mi­nal have been cut by half, ac­cord­ing to Oman Air­ports.

The au­thor­ity has re­leased new park­ing rates for the air­port, ac­cord­ing to which park­ing up to 30 min­utes will be OMR 0.500, while park­ing from 30 min­utes to one hour will cost OMR1, a de­crease of 50 per cent from the past rate.

Park­ing for one-to-two hours is now OMR2, down from OMR3, while two-to-three hours is OMR3, down from OMR4. The fees for park­ing from three to 24 hours have stayed the same.

The de­ci­sion has been wel­comed by many res­i­dents, who were baf­fled by the ini­tial park­ing fees. “I drove to the new air­port four times,” said one driver, and I al­ways parked on the side to avoid pay­ing the fees, but now I can ac­tu­ally use the park­ing space.”
