Muscat: The brand new Muscat International Airport terminal is set to officially open its doors to the public.
Here are the main differences between the two airports.

The passenger terminal covers a total area of 580,000 square metres and is equipped with the latest technology and state-of-the-art facilities, which will help put it among the top 20 airports in the world by 2020.

“The main difference is we have really upgraded our security screening standards for passengers,” said Pablo Lorenz, Trials Manager at Oman Airports Management Company (OAMC).

The new terminal has been designed with security and safety at its core, using state-of-the-art biometric smart technology to track any unauthorised access or inconsistencies.

It has focused on creating a streamlined, integrated security process, whilst maintaining a great ambiance at the airport.

“We will have a four-fold increase in the parking capacity,” Lorenz said. The new Muscat International Airport will have over 7,000 car parking spaces, all of which offer shaded car parking.

Muscat Passenger Terminal Building total area – 580,000 m2
Other Airport Buildings total area - more than 30,000
m2ATC tower height – 97 meters
96 check-in counters -  :sosad:
29 passenger boarding bridges
30 aircraft remote stands
5,500 bags per hour baggage  processing capacity- which means the bag probably comes at least within 30 mins, rather than over an hour.
Two parallel runways, capable to serve world`s largest aircraft A380
Airside hotel ( 90 rooms capacity for 12 MPPA)

That's really good news for voyagers in that region. I assume they'll have shuttles running to local population centres, maybe even a rapid flyer service.
