Oman Air to Shift Qatar Operations to New Doha Airport

Oman Air will shift its Qatar operations from Doha International Airport to the newly-opened Doha Hamad International Airport from May 22, 2014. The move follows the new airport's opening on April 30, 2014 and most of the airlines currently flying from Doha International Airport will, over the next few weeks, be accommodated at the new airport. The change of location means that Oman Air's services from Muscat to Doha will now arrive at the new Hamad International Airport. Oman Air operates up to eight flights a day between Muscat and Doha, with further flights available as a result of its code share with Qatar Airways. Further information will be provided, and appropriate arrangements will be made for passengers connecting with airlines which have yet to make the move to the new location.

Government Plans To Privatize Oman Air And Omantel

Oman plans to privatize Oman Telecommunications Company (S.A.O.G) (MSM:OTEL) and Oman Air (S.O.A.C) to local investors, Finance Minister Darwish al-Balushi said. Both operations would come be part of a broader plan of privatizing some 60 companies in which the state holds an interest, he said. As a first step, Oman Air will be broken up into three companies -- one for freight, one for ground services and one for passengers. "A decision on privatization will be taken subsequently in light of the results at each of the companies," said Balushi, who is also chairman of the airline. Government holds a 70% stake in Oman Telecommunications, Balushi said the plan is to offer 9.5% to Omani investors on March 27, 2014.
