The Cargo Department works under the umbrella of the Services & Delivery Division of Oman Air. Combining the long-established cargo management expertise and state-of-the-art equipment and facilities, Cargo ensures providing high standards of cargo security and service, not only to Oman Air’s clientele, but also to all airlines, operating to and from Muscat International Airport and Salalah Airport, in the south of Oman. Backed by an automated cargo handling system, highly skilled and trained staffs provide expeditious and efficient services to its valued customers.
The Cargo Department will soon embark on an automation project for Oman Air to improve its cargo reservation and booking facilities. With the support of the current automated cargo-ground handling system, this will ensure better and improved service to cargo-clients of Oman Air – network-wide, as well as airlines operating in Muscat and Salalah airports.
