Suzanne Halil, Travel Trade Manager, Oman Ministry of Tourism Market Representative Office UK and Ireland, said: “Join us for an evening of fun and explorations in our Oman Souk with a private viewing of a selection of short films and the chance to win prizes – both big and small – and meet the Oman Expert UK team.”

Oman welcomed 7,452 Irish visitors in 2013, a 21% increase on the previous year. A World Economic Forum report claims Oman’s travel and tourism industry was worth an estimated US$2.11 billion in 2012 and anticipates average growth of 5.2% between 2013 and 2022.

Targeting international visitors is high on the agenda for Oman Air, which plans to go double-daily on its London – Muscat route and branch out into other medium- and long-haul markets when new A330 and B787 aircraft are delivered, taking its total fleet size to 50 by 2017.

To cater for a surge in travellers visiting the Sultanate, a new $1.8 billion passenger terminal is under construction at Muscat International Airport, boosting its capacity from six to 12 million passengers annually. Five airports in total are under construction, with regional locations including Duqm, Ras al Hadd, and Sohar.
