Salalah airport closed due to cyclone

MUSCAT, May 25, 2018

Oman's Salalah Airport was closed to air traffic last night for at least 24 hours as Cyclone Mekunu approached Oman, according to the Sultanate's Public Authority for Civil Aviation (PACA).
 
In a statement carried by the Oman News Agency, PACA said: "Following up the development of the cyclone, which is centered in the Arabian Sea and approached the coasts of Dhofar as well as the Omani airspace, PACA has decided to close Salalah Airport at 12 am tonight and for 24 hours which could be extended, depending on the development of the weather conditions."
 
PACA added that it is coordinating with other international airlines in the Omani air space and is sparing no effort re-open the airport once weather conditions get back towards normal.
