Duqm completes airfields infrastructure work
Muscat, December 7, 2013
Oman's Duqm International Airport has completed all infrastructure work related to the new airfield including the runway, long way, taxiway, apron and airfield lighting facilities, said a report.
Work on the 40 million rial ($103.6 million) project began in early 2011, reported the Oman Observer.
With a capacity of 500,000 passengers annually, its apron terminal consists of two boarding air bridges, four remote aircraft stands, and a runway with length of 4,000 metres, two link taxiways and a fuel hydrant system structures.
Duqm International Airport is being built as part of a larger plan to set up a modern seaport in the south east of Oman. The new airport is primarily expected to handle business and traffic but may also become part of the tourism industry, said the report.
