The passenger terminal at Oman’s Duqm Aiport is expected to commence operations in the second half of this year, with construction already 96% complete.

The terminal will become operational once full readiness has been ensured, Oman News Agency (ONA) reported, quoting the country’s Minister of Transport and Communication, Ahmed bin Mohammed Al-Futaisi.

Al-Futaisi said: "The project is in the finishing stage and system commissioning.

"The commercial operation will start at the second half of this year after reaching a final agreement with the ministry's partners, and after completing all tests and commissioning.”

"The airport has been designed to handle 0.5 million passengers on board of domestic and international flights per annum," he added, noting that this capacity would be “raised to 2 million in the future”.

Earlier this year, Dr Mohammed bin Nasser al-Za'abi, chief executive officer of Public Authority for Civil Aviation (PACA), revealed that Package 3 of the airport was progressing as planned.

Package 3 included a new passenger terminal and an air traffic control (ATC) tower, in addition to other facilities.

The contract, valued at $94m (OMR36.27m), for Package 3 was awarded to Larsen and Toubro (L&T) in 2014.
