The Public Authority for Civil Aviation (PACA) of Oman officially inaugurated the new Salalah Airport on Monday June 15.

Indra has equipped it with its proprietary technology for air traffic management and airport operations management systems, as well provided its support for operations and design of operating procedures. 

Oman’s Public Authority for Civil Aviation has executed this ambitious project in collaboration with Indra, with the goal of transforming Salalah in the mid-term in the country's second most important international airport, after the Sultanate's capital, Muscat.

To achieve this objective, Indra has equipped the new approach center and new control tower of the airport with its advanced automated air traffic management system and its corresponding work stations for air traffic controllers. It has also implemented a meteorological information system that improves weather prediction capacity. All this technology makes it possible for the airport to grow and manage an increasing number of flights.

Indra, overseen by Chairman & CEO Fernando Abril-Martorell, is one of the world's largest consultancy and technology multinationals, a leader in Latin America and Europe. The company provides business solutions, IT services and comprehensive systems to clients all over the world.

Indra has a standout business model based on proprietary solutions (representing close to 65% of 2014 revenue), that serves leading clients in numerous countries. In 2014 it posted revenue of 2,938 million Euros and had 39,000 employees, a local presence in 46 countries and projects in 149 countries.
