Salalah International Airport has been designed to accommodate Oman's fast growing tourism, processing two million passengers annually. Salalah is located approximately 1,000 kilometres from the capital city Muscat, attracting tourists both locally in the region and internationally. The existing airport has a capacity of 200,000 passengers a year.
The new airport will have an initial capacity for two million passengers a year. The goal is to turn Salalah into a complementary gateway to Oman. Salalah is the second largest town in the Sultanate of Oman. It's environment is distinctive to the region, as it experiences an unusual monsoon season, making it an extremely lush green and cold destination.
This unique natural environment attracts many tourists. Castaldi lighting products are installed in the outdoor area and provide a very modern and attractive architectural lighting, always paying close attention to the safety of passengers.
