An agreement has been signed between Muscat National Development & Investment Company (ASAAS) and Oman Air for the construction of a new crew building at the Muscat International Airport.

The new $19.7m (OMR7.6m) facility is scheduled to be completed by Q1 2018 along with the main airport terminal, Muscat Daily reported.

Serving the requirements of cabin crews and Oman Air operations team, the facility will act as a hub to all airline crew members.

The project will be fully funded by ASAAS, and built on approximately 25,000m2 of land allocated by the Oman Airports Management Company (OAMC).

Kayan, ASAAS’ construction management arm, is slated to start work on the project in the coming weeks, and once completed, will hand over the building to Oman Air for operation on a 25-year lease.

OAMC’s chief executive officer, Sheikh Aimen al Hosni, said: “We are delighted to be able to facilitate the development of the Oman Air’s crew reporting building and provide the necessary land for its construction.”

The new facility will include briefing rooms for Oman Air crew as well as offices for the Royal Oman Police and internal security services for immigration security.

The building will also host several Oman Air operational offices as well as duty-free shops, coffee shops, rest areas, and currency exchange facilities.
