Oman will resume international flights to and from the sultanate starting October 1, 2020, announced the country's Supreme Committee.
International travel will restart in accordance with the Covid-19 health data for specific destinations. While no further details were provided about the reopening, it can be expected that Oman will categorise destinations and preventive measures based on the scale of the outbreak in each country.
The airport authority has called on interested flyers to comply with any safety measures that will be announced by the Ministry of Health. Travellers are recommended to check with their airline for updates prior to travelling.
Oman restricted its borders to international travel earlier in March due to the pandemic.
Since then, flights stayed open for Omani nationals and residents. Anyone who entered the country must have health insurance, and are required to quarantine for two weeks, either at a hotel or at home.
To book your flight to or from Oman, kindly check your airline carrier.
