“I personally visited the new airport to see how people can access it and I was extremely happy to discover that the route is quite straightforward, despite where you are coming from. People shouldn’t worry at all about getting there as the route to the new airport has been designed keeping all locations in mind, leaving no room for confusion,” said Ali Al Barwani, CEO, Oman Road Safety Association.
“Having said that, I would highly advise all passengers travelling for the first time to get there ahead of time, as it will be a completely new experience for them.
