O.A.S. plans to build 6 more airports

The last time the airports were mentioned, we were told that a total of 5 airports would be developed in Oman with a large fund from the government because they wanted to boost the tourism sector.

Now, the Oman Aviation Services company (which I think partially owns the airports in Oman along with the government - please correct me if I am wrong) is looking to develop 6 airports in the Sultanate and develop both Muscat International Airport and Salalah International Airport by adding new features and developments yearly from the year 2010 until 2019.

If scientists are right that the Earth would be hit by a comet or meteorite by the year 2012, then there's no need for all of this.


The amount that is being spent on these airports should be invested into stabilizing the local economy that is now facing a 'official' 7% inflation, over-hiked prices in general on everything, and low wages and salaries whether you're in the government or the private sector.

It just doesn't pay to get out of bed these days, does it?
