Emerging opportunities in Oman's aviation industry will be highlighted as the Sultanate's first international civil aviation conference on 25th October 2011, as part of the TransOman 2011 conference and exhibition.

The Omani government has continued to invest large amounts to boost the country's civil aviation sector, including the creation of new domestic airports in areas such as Sohar, Ras Al Hadd, Adam and Duqm, as well as development at both Muscat and Salalah international airports.

"If we recall memories of old airports in Oman in the 1920s, we would note that the very first airport in the Sultanate, which was Bait Al-Falaj Airport in Ruwi, was only a narrow and dirt track landing strip with limited facilities and equipment to serve as a civilian airport," commented Ebrahim Taher, Project's Manager at Oman International Trade and Exhibitions (OITE), organiser of the event.

"Coming back to present time with the existence of two international airports in Oman and a few domestic airports, the International Civil Aviation Conference 2011 will highlight the era of development that is taking place in the sector, especially the structural, operational and commercial developments."

The agenda of the conference includes emerging opportunities for airline industry in the Middle East, updates on the civil aviation infrastructure in Oman, a focus on the latest technologies and strategies to manage the airline industry and improve revenue, among other topics.

TransOman 2011 will be divided into five major events, which are: Transport, Shipping & Logistics Show (TransOman Exhibition), Logistics & Supply Chain Conference, 1st International Civil Aviation Conference, Oman Ports & Shipping Conference, and the 2nd Oman Logistics Excellence Awards.
