Oman Airports introduce new safety measures ahead of flight resumptions

Oman has unveiled a number of new safety measures at its airports in preparation for flight restrictions being lifted.

Passengers will have their temperature checked before entering the terminal, and have to pass through personal sanitising devices.

Hand sanitisers will be provided throughout the terminal, and facilities will be regularly santitised by staff.

There will be self-service check-in counters, as well as social distancing stickers on floors and seats.

Oman suspended all domestic and international flights at the end of March, with the exception of cargo flights and those to the governorate of Musandam.

Since then, there have been a number of repatriation flights to countries such as India and the UK.

There has been no official announcement as to when flights will restart, although Air India has said it expects to relaunch flights this month.
