Sheikh Samer Al Nabhani, Oman Airports chief commercial officer, said: “The airport has completed its preparations to welcome Qeshm Air's arrival at Muscat International Airport, strengthening, even more, the importance of Omani Irani relations established centuries ago, in addition to the continuous growth of Iranian inbound tourism in Oman. We are proud to announce that Qeshm Air has joined the Oman Airports family."

Oman Airports has been working closely with Qeshm Air alongside Oman Public Authority for Civil Aviation to make the opportunity turn into reality. Iranian travellers are now welcomed into the Sultanate of Oman with a visa upon arrival process.
