Seven global construction firms are currently bidding for the contract to build a new airport at the coastal city of Duqm, 600km south of Muscat.

The airport, which will be the country’s third international hub after Muscat and Salalah, has an estimated project cost of US$200 million.

Companies bidding for the Duqm airport project include India’s Larsen and Toubro (L&T) and Dodsal, South Korea’s Hanjin Heavy, Korea’s Daewoo Engineering and Construction, France’s Thales, Athens’ Consolidated Contractors and Turkey’s Makyol. The Government of Oman plans to inject vast sums of money into the Duqm region.

The travel and tourism sector will be boosted by new hotels, resorts and public beaches along this coastal area.
