Lee Chee Khian, CEO of Oman’s Special Economic Zone Authority in Duqm (SEZAD) has said the Duqm Airport may become operational with a soft launch later this year ahead of full-fledged commercial operations in 2016, Muscat Daily has reported. “Pending completion of the airport terminal, the Public Authority for Civil Aviation (PACA) is working to prepare the facility for early operations sometime during the third or fourth quarter of 2014,” said Khian. The operation and management of Duqm Airport will be handled by Oman Airports Management Co (OAMC).
