A small number of Oman Air ground handling staff have gone on strike for the past two days, causing operations at Muscat International Airport to slow down, Times of Oman have reported. Oman Air has issued a statement confirming the strike. "Oman Air is disappointed to learn that an unofficial strike has been called by a small number of staff at Muscat International Airport. No advance notice of the strike was given as required by the Omani labour law and the national regulations governing industrial action appear not to have been observed," according to the statement. The statement also added that Oman Air has positioned additional staff to minimise the impact on customers.
