Salalah airport’s new cargo terminal to boost capacity

MUSCAT, October 9, 2018

The new cargo terminal at Oman’s Salalah Airport is expected to boost the cargo handling capacity in Salalah, which is fast emerging as a major link for sea-air cargo movement from Far East and Indian Subcontinent to Europe, Africa and US, said a report.

Ali Al Yafai, commercial and marketing manager at Salalah Airport, said that the new facility is a value addition to the port city’s strategic location as the shipment from Salalah is likely to be cheaper due to short shipment time and the location’s capacity to handle sea, air and road for transportation of goods, added the Oman Daily Observer report.

Al Yafai added that a ‘key advantage’ of the terminal was being the link between East and West, not only on the shipping lines but also by air.

He said that Salalah has a competitive advantage supported by a mega-container port and reduced time of connections to key markets.
