Muscat International Airport unveils North runway

Muscat International Airport in Oman launched its North runway last month, with an Oman Air Airbus A330 the first aircraft to land.

The new runway is a key part of development plans at the airport, with the new facilities aiming to cater for up to 12 million visitors a year in the first phase, up to five million more than the current airport’s capacity. 

Paul Gregorowitsch, chief executive of Oman Air said: "It is an honour for Oman Air to inaugurate Muscat International Airport’s new runway. As the airport that serves the Sultanate’s capital city and home to its national carrier, Muscat International Airport holds very special significance for Oman Air. It was therefore a pleasure to see our Airbus A330 become the first aircraft to touch down as a signal of the start of operations at the new runway."
