Travellers flying out of Muscat International Airport will have to arrive between three and four hours before their departure time, Oman Airports has announced.

A number of new safety measures have been introduced due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In a statement, Oman Airports said, “Before travelling, departing passengers are recommended to complete their travel procedures online and use e-tickets.

“Passengers are allowed to carry only one handbag, and must arrive at the airport three to four hours before the flight departure time.”
