Works on the first and second packages at Oman's Duqm Airport have been completed, Dr Mohammed bin Nasser al Za'abi, CEO of the Public Authority for Civil Aviation (PACA) said.

The work is also underway at the third package, which includes the passenger terminal, the aviation and meteorology complex, as well as air traffic control (ATC) tower.

He pointed out that the works, which started by the end of 2015 are expected to be completed early 2018 as the period for the project's work is 24 months.

"The activity on Muscat-Al Duqm route operated by Oman Air is growing as the company now operates four weekly flights. The company is now using Boeing 737 to meet the growing needs of passengers," Dr Al Za'abi said.

The Duqm regional airport is designed to accommodate all types of aircraft, including those handling large passenger numbers and air cargo loads with in-flight catering facilities.

The airport will connect Duqm to Muscat, and other regional airports within Oman as well as with a host of international destinations
