Hill International has been awarded a OMR 41.8M (£68M) contract by the Ministry of Transport and Communications and the Public Authority for Civil Aviation of the Sultanate of Oman to project manage the £3.3bn expansion of Muscat International and Salalah Airports.
The expansion of Muscat International Airport, the largest airport in Oman, includes a new terminal that will have a capacity of 12 million passengers annually.
The expansion of Salalah Airport, the second largest airport in Oman, involves upgrading it from primarily a domestic airport to make it more suitable for international travelers, including building a new runway long enough to handle the A380 Airbus, and a new terminal that will improve the airport’s capacity to 1 million passengers annually.
“Expansion of Oman’s two largest airports is important for the Sultanate’s growth as a commercial and tourism destination in the Middle East,” said Mohammed Al Rais, senior vice president and managing director (Middle East) for Hill’s Project Management Group. “We are honored to have been selected to manage such important aviation projects,” added Al Rais.
