The Oman Tourism Report provides industry professionals and strategists, corporate analysts, tourism associations, government departments and regulatory bodies with independent forecasts and competitive intelligence on Oman's tourism industry.

The Oman Tourism Report examines the significant long-term potential currently being offered by the local tourism industry, but flags short-term concerns surrounding the fact that Oman is currently served by significantly less direct flights than other Gulf tourist destinations, as well as the fact that the country still needs to invest to improve infrastructure and develop a wider range of tourism facilities.

The report also analyses the growth and risk management strategies being employed by some of the leading players in Oman’s tourism sector (airlines and hotel chains), as they seek to maximise the growth opportunities being offered by the local market at the present time.

This quarter, BMI has revised up its forecast for tourist arrivals in 2012, believing that an increase of 15% is now possible. This comes in the wake of strong arrivals data (including transfers) for Q112 at Muscat Airport of 944,833 passengers. READ MORE >
