Hill International has received a $78m contract extension on Muscat International Airport and Salalah Airport in Oman.

The firm was awarded an initial $108.5m (OMR41.8m)contract to provide consulting engineering services for the two projects in 2012.

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.

Meanwhile, the expansion of Salalah Airport, the country's second largest airport, involves upgrading it from primarily a domestic airport, including building a new runway long enough to handle the A380 Airbus, and a new terminal that will boost capacity to one million passengers annually.

The extension was awarded by the Ministry of Transport and Communications and the Public Authority for Civil Aviation of the Sultanate of Oman.

"It is an honour to continue to serve the Ministry to help deliver these critical aviation projects," said Mohammed Al Rais, regional president (Middle East) for Hill's project management group. "Upon completion, they will have an immediate positive impact on both business and tourism in the region."
