Mwasalat, which has signed an agreement to operate the taxi service at the airport with Oman Airport Management Company, has already purchased a number of buses for the new routes, Oman News Agency (ONA) reported.

Last month, the country’s Public Authority of Civil Aviation (PACA) revealed that the last flight will take off from the current airport at around 3.00 p.m. on 20 March, while the first flight will arrive at the new airport before 6.00 p.m. on the same day.

The cargo terminal of the new airport, meanwhile, is scheduled to become operational starting 2.00 p.m. on 19 March.
