In a statement Oman’s CAA said: The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has published an explanation regarding what has been circulated recently about some passengers on board an Oman-based airline were tested positive with the Coronavirus (Covid-19) on arrival at Cairo International Airport Egypt.

The CAA said that health and safety protocols to limit the spread of the (Covid 19) virus are applicable to all airlines operating their flights to and from the Sultanate, and that even Oman-based carriers are obligated to ensure that passengers on their flights meet the requirements of entering the country heading to it.

The authority has recently coordinated with their counterparts in the Egyptian Civil Aviation Authority regarding the new measures enforced by the Egyptian authorities in this regard, and it has been confirmed that all travelers had pre-examination certificates with a negative result before accepting their travel on the flight bound for Cairo Airport.

CAA said the requirements for entering some countries – including the Sultanate – include PCR tests on arrivals, as there is a possibility of infection during the period after the PCR tests before travel to the day of arrival.

CAA also said, during the last period, a number of positive cases were also discovered for passengers coming from Cairo on board Egyptian airlines flights, as the competent authorities in the Sultanate took measures to isolate the infected in accordance with the health protocols in force in the Sultanate and internationally recognized, and those concerned with the authority continue to coordinate with their counterparts in the Egypt to apply similar measures to airlines that transport passengers between the two brotherly countries.
