About Sohar Airport

Sohar Airport

General Information:

The coastal city of Sohar, the main city in Batinah Region, is located 220km northwest of Muscat and is on the main road transport route between the Sultanate of Oman and the Emirate of Dubai. Over recent years, Sohar, and the wider Al-Batinah Region, have attracted significant industrial and commercial infrastructure investments.

Sohar Airport, about 13km northwest of Sohar, will provide an alternative, quicker route for travelers wishing to access Sohar and the north of Oman. The Airport will also serve as a new gateway for cargo and courier traffic in northern Oman and, in the future, will ease congestion pressure on Sultan Qaboos Port in Muscat. In addition, Sohar Airport will serve as an emergency alternative to Muscat Airport for passengers and cargo coming into the Sultanate.

The Airport is being built within the proximity of the major commercial, industrial and economic centers of Sohar, including the Port of Sohar Special Economic Zone. It will complement the plans for a major expressway and rail network, which will underpin the port city`'s eventual transformation into a major industrial and economic hub on Al-Batinah coast.

Airport Location:             13KM Northest of Sohar City Centre.
