Asyad Group, Oman’s global integrated logistics provider, launched a tender for the construction of phase one infrastructure for the highly anticipated Muscat International Airport Free Zone. This invitation extends to all private entities, offering an opportunity to participate in a vital logistics project that supports the Sultanate’s economic growth.

In line with the goals set out in Oman Vision 2040 and Asyad’s commitment to fostering partnerships within the private sector, this initiative underscores the group’s efforts to involve private companies in the most recent venture in its logistics journey.

Since signing an agreement in December 2023 to manage, operate and develop the free zone, Asyad Group has made rapid progress in delivering its plans to build an additional enabler of Oman’s economic growth. The Muscat International Airport Free Zone is set to play a vital role in strengthening air freight access and logistics, becoming an integral piece of Asyad’s integrated logistics ecosystem, and enhancing connectivity between land crossings, seaports, free and economic zones, and the dry port in Oman.

Supported by this interconnected network of logistics hubs, the coming free zone will offer the ultimate support for air freight and seamless access to supply chains that extend from Oman to the biggest global markets, ideal to transport pharmaceuticals, food products, e-commerce shipments, and other goods.

Faisal Ali Al Balushi, Director – Muscat International Airport Free Zone at Asyad Group, said: “We invite all local companies to submit their bids and take part in this vital project, and we look forward to building our partnership with the private sector. This free zone will offer an excellent opportunity for Oman’s private sector to grow and capitalize on the competitive advantages and investment prospects it offers.”

“The new free zone is a collaborative undertaking that we aim to deliver together with private partners,” said Al Balushi. “It reflects Asyad Group’s unwavering commitment to developing our partnership with the private sector to build Oman’s leading air logistics hub, drive economic growth, and unlock limitless opportunities for SMEs in the logistics industry.”

The world-class Muscat International Airport Free Zone will comprise state-of-the-art logistics facilities, ready-to-use warehouses, and premium land plots. The free zone will also offer investors and global players unrivaled commercial and tax incentives, all designed to cement Oman’s position as a leading global logistics hub and a destination of choice for foreign direct investment.
