A joint venture of local firm

Galfar Engineering with India's Larsen & Toubro

has been awarded a contract worth OR294m ($763.6m) to expand an Omani airport, a tender board

official said on Wednesday.

"The contract at Salalah airport is to build a new terminal

building, a runway, control tower, an apron and a hangar," the

tender board official told Reuters, speaking on condition of

anonymity.

Salalah, a resort located in the southern region of Oman, is

Oman's second biggest airport after Muscat.

Last week, the US engineering firm Bechtel was awarded a

OR706m contract to build a terminal building at Muscat

airport in a joint venture with an Omani firm.

Oman is also building airports at Duqm, Ras Al-Hadd and

Sohar.
