COVID-19: 3,000 passengers arrive in Oman in 3 days
Cairo: More than 3,000 passengers have arrived in Oman in the first three days since the country resumed international flights on October 1, according to a health official.
Operations have been running smoothly at the sultanate’s three airports of Muscat Salalah and Duqm since restarting scheduled flights, added Khaled bin Khamis Al Mahruqi, the health and safety director at the Oman Airports.

All passengers arriving in Oman are required to do a test for detecting the new coronavirus upon arrival. To do the testing, people have to make advance reservations and pay a fee of OMR 25 each via the App Tarassud Plus. Al Mahruqi has cited some problems, including failure of some arriving passengers to upload the App Tarassud Plus on their smartphones resulting in slowing down departure procedures.
“Some passengers refused to pay the fees set for undergoing the COVID-19 test,” he told Omani newspaper Al Watan. “But all these challenges have been brought under control due to concerted efforts among all agencies concerned,” he added.

Around 15,000 signs of physical distancing have been placed on the floors of the three airports and plastic barriers put in front of the procedure desks, the official said. In March, Oman suspended international flights to and from the country as part of a raft of measures to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
