The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has started preparing the National Aviation Strategy 2040, which aims to integrate all sectors, especially the tourism and logistics sectors, and is expected to be completed in the first half of 2024.


Eng Naif bin Ali al Abri, Chairman of the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), said that this strategy will enhance the Sultanate of Oman’s aviation as a crossing point between East and West. He said there is a preference for using the Omani airspace and the total number of aircraft flying over the Sultanate is 1,600 aircraft.

He added that the strategy will focus on air freight capabilities at Salalah Airport, which has promising opportunities, and the CAA is working in cooperation with its partners to promote and attract air carriers to the airport in the field of freight, or at Muscat International Airport, which has witnessed good growth.

On the Musandam Airport project, he said that the project is currently in the final stages of appointing a consultant to prepare detailed designs and technical studies for the proposed site and these steps will be completed during the next year.
