The consulting team of FMG, the Munich Airport operating company, has been awarded a large, new contract for the commissioning, relocation and operation of airports. Under the contract, which has a total volume in the double-digit millions, the FMG experts will be busy for four and a half years at two airports in the Sultinate of Oman.

Traffic at the international airport in Muscat and Salalah Airport has been steadily increasing in recent years, and forecasts call for this trend to continue. To meet this demand, the Sultinate of Oman has decided to increase capacity at both airports and improve the quality offered to passengers and airlines.

Measures at Muscat Airport will include a new terminal building, a tower and a new runway to increase the airport's capacity from 4 million at present to 12 million passengers per year. In Salalah, a new terminal is planned to handle 1 million passengers per year and the runway will be extended.

FMG's ORAT team (Operational Readiness and Airport Transfer) emerged with the winning bid from a large field of competitors to gain the largest consulting contract in the company's history. A decisive factor was Munich Airport's international experience in this area highlighted by the feat of moving its own operations from the old Munich Riem airport to the Erdinger Moos region in just one night in May 1992.

 At present the FMG consulting team is supporting projects in Delhi, Doha, Bahrain, Vienna and Berlin. The experts from Munich will start their work in Oman in November 2010.
