Indra has put into operation a new control tower to provide services to the runway recently built by the Public Authority for Civil Aviation (PACA) at Muscat International Airport.
Both, the existing and the new towers, as well as the approach control center, now operate using latest generation Indra technology. The new systems allow an aircraft to take off or land every two minutes, thus tripling the airport's previous capacity and readying it to receive the new A380, the world's largest commercial aircraft.
The inaugural flight was witnessed by local authorities in December, thus marking the opening of the new control tower and runway, which measures 4 km. in length and 60 meters in width. In the presence of His Excellency Gen. Sultan bin Mohammed Al Nu’amani, Minister of Royal Office, and His Excellency Dr. Ahmed bin Mohammed bin Salim al Futaisi, Minister of Transport and Communications, an Airbus A330 landed with the support of Indra systems.
