Oman’s Tender Board is soon to float a tender for a new terminal building at Sohar airport.

The new terminal, set to handle up to 500,000 passengers per annum, hopes to increase airport capacity in the country in view of rising demand.

As the third phase of the project, the contract will also include the construction of an integrated air traffic control tower, and buildings for catering, air rescue and fire fighting services.

Other facilities planned for the airport include a 9,000m2 floor area, 300-space car park, two gate lounges, a cargo terminal building to handle 50,000 tonnes and a 4km runway.

The news comes shortly after a major contract linked to the construction of Sohar airport was signed by Oman’s Minister of Transport and Communication Dr Khamis bin Mubarak Al Alawi, with a senior official of Strabag Oman, just this week.

The first two packages, worth a combined OMR 65.1 million, have already been awarded to Strabag Oman.
