Oman Airport Management Company Project summary
Oman Airport Management Company S.A.O.C
- Start date
- September 2016
Since the airport opened in 1973, Oman has seen significant growth in both tourism and business trade, attracting people from across the world. Mace has been contracted to oversee the delivery of the retail and commercial offerings in the new state-of-the-art passenger terminal.
We are providing design review, project management and supervision services to Oman Airport Management Company (OAMC) for up to 100 retail fit outs and two first-class passenger lounges. The bespoke, crafted finishes will position the airport as a contender to be a top 20 airport by 2020, a vision of OAMC.
Using our vast experience in airport expansion programmes we are also managing the introduction of retail concessioners in three piers. The new Muscat International Airport intends to increase aircraft capacity, 29 boarding bridges for passengers to safely travel to and from the aircraft, and further facilities to accommodate the world’s largest aircraft - the Airbus A380. Moving away from the current 100% coaching operation currently used.
We are supporting OAMC on the most efficient and effective way of taking over elements of their new flagship terminal towards the end of the programme, ensuring a seamless handover of the concessions to our client.
When complete, Muscat International Airport will be a bright contemporary building within an ancient cultural setting that will leave visitors with positive, lasting memories of Oman and its people.
