Oman Airports signs contract with CrowdVision® to enhance passenger experience in real time.
Oman Airports (OA) have signed a contract with UK based CrowdVision and local partner, Ingenuity Technologies LLC to deploy a Passenger Flow Management system, to optimise the passenger experience and airport performance across the new Muscat International and Salalah flagship airports, covering all key airport areas.

- Resource allocation (workforce size and rosters) to match demand and keep passengers moving
- Asset allocation (desks, lanes etc) to match demand and reduce processing times
- Queue/flow optimisation – layout and flow management process to keep passengers moving
- Passenger Experience enhancement by minimising waiting and creating opportunities to enjoy themselves, eat, shop and relax.
- Providing the capability to handle ‘off-plan’ days effectively in real time.
