Posted 11 December 2019 · Add Comment

Oman is seeing an increase of visitors having grown a total of 11.2% between 2017 and 2018, reaching 2.7million, says GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.

 

Johanna Bonhill-Smith, Travel and Tourism Analyst at GlobalData said: ‘By the end of 2019, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) predicted that Omani aviation will have grown by 40%. A new terminal at Muscat International airport at US$1.8bn, followed by a new domestic airport terminal at Duqm outlines the country’s plan for expansion. Holding a variety of greenery and natural offerings, not commonly found within other GCC destinations, Oman is becoming more widely recognised as a leisure destination.”
