Duqm: On the Blessed Renaissance Day anniversary, the gate to discover investment opportunities in Oman's fastest growing economic hub was opened wider with the launch of Duqm Airport. 

The historic opening of the airport took place on Wednesday morning under the patronage of Ahmed bin Mohamed al Futaisi, Minister of Transport and Communications and in presence of high-ranking officials from various government sectors. 

The opening of Duqm Airport marks a milestone in Oman's airport industry given the fact that it is the first regional airport to handle flights to and from the Special Economic Zone at Duqm. 

It is also a great success for the national airline of Oman. It was previously reported that there will be four flights per week, with Oman Air operating these with Embraer E175 aircraft.
