In line with the highest standards and global operating procedures in the aviation industry, Oman Airports Management Company (OAMC), is introducing a new baggage policy across its major airports including, Muscat International, Salalah and Sohar. Effective from September 1st, passengers will no longer be allowed to check in round and irregular shaped luggage such as items wrapped in blankets, linen or tied with rope. This change is applicable to all passengers regardless of airline, cabin class or destination. For travellers, the new policy will result in faster pickups, less baggage jams, and an overall smoother and hassle-free experience. For airport personnel, it will ensure the safety and security of baggage handlers, efficient check-ins and seamless access to checked baggage in case of further security screening. The Company is currently working closely with all airlines, travel agencies, and tourism promoting websites, including the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, to ensure that this policy is clearly communicated to all travellers to and from Oman.
