Oman Airports Management Company (OAMC) has signed a contract for seven years with Lockheed Martin to use its BEONTRA forecasting solutions.
BEONTRA tools will support the growth of the Muscat and Salah International Airports, as well as national airlines such as Oman Air.
The tools, which feature B Tactical and B Capacity, will be used by OAMC to forecast significant growth on strategic planning and everyday operations.
It will allow the two Oman airports to generate resource plans that would be able to provide the best passenger experience to its customers.
The BEONTRA suite will support decision-making of OAMC and will allow better collaboration between its commercial and operational departments to make the best use of the existing infrastructure.
OAMC CEO Aimen Ahmed Al Hosni said: "We achieved record growth last year, surpassing ten million passengers for the first time.
"To help us continue this trend, we wanted to work with a partner who has a global reputation for product innovation, successful delivery and first-class support. The team at Lockheed Martin absolutely fits each criteria."
OAMC aims to become one of the top 20 global airports by 2020.
Lockheed Martin Transportation managing director Mark Cooper said: "It's an impressive objective and I have no doubts that our team will have a positive impact on how OAMC achieves its goal."
