Oman Opens Airspace for All Airlines, Says Civil Aviation Authority

Oman’s airspace will be open to all airlines that meet the authority’s requirements for overflying, the country’s Civil Aviation Authority said on Thursday.

“As part of the Sultanate of Oman’s continuous efforts to fulfil its obligations under the Chicago Convention of 1944, the Civil Aviation Authority affirms that the Sultanate’s airspace is open for all carriers that meet the requirements of the Authority for overflying,” the CAA wrote on Twitter.

Israel’s Foreign Minister Eli Cohen thanked Ruler of Oman Sultan Haitham for the decision, which will allow airlines to offer shorter routes to Asia.

“Following activity of the Israeli Foreign Ministry, Oman announced the approval of the passage of flights of Israeli companies in its territory. This will shorten the flight time from Israel to Asia and reduce ticket prices.”
