History was made on Thursday as PDO flight OM050, operated by Oman Air, became the first live trial flight to use the new Muscat International Airport terminal.
The flight, carrying 102 passengers, took off this morning at 7:30am and landed safely at PDO’s Fahud Airport at 8:25am.
Airport authorities and PDO regard this flight, transporting PDO staff and contractors, as a great success.
PDO Infrastructure Director Dr. Badar Al Kharusi commented: “We are delighted and honoured to have played a part in this historic occasion.
“As with the rest of the nation, PDO is hugely supportive of the new Muscat International Airport which is a landmark development for Oman.”
