The decision on the return of air traffic has not been taken yet, and talks are underway, H E Dr Ahmed al Futaisi, Minister of Transport, said on Thursday.  

The decision will be announced in due course, he said, noting that there are continuous movement of special flights for repatriation and air cargo. 

“There are countries that still have not opened up their airports. Some countries also ask for health requirements, including the health isolation of arriving passengers,” he added. 

He said that efforts have been made by Oman Air and Oman Airports to reduce expenses, and it has been possible to reduce at least 40 per cent of the annual normal operating cost.
