Hill International Receives $78 Million Contract Extension on Muscat International Airport and Salalah Airport in Oman

PHILADELPHIA and MUSCAT, Oman, Nov. 11, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hill International (NYSE:HIL), the global leader in managing construction risk, announced today that it has received a contract extension from the Ministry of Transport and Communications and the Public Authority for Civil Aviation of the Sultanate of Oman. This is an extension of the three-year, OMR 41.8 million ($108.5 million) contract to provide consulting engineering services on Muscat International Airport and Salalah Airport awarded to Hill in 2012. The one-year extension has an estimated value to Hill of approximately OMR 30.1 million ($78.2 million).

The expansion of Muscat International Airport, the largest airport in Oman, includes a new terminal that will have a capacity of 12 million passengers annually. The expansion of Salalah Airport, the second largest airport in Oman, involves upgrading it from primarily a domestic airport to make it more suitable for international travelers, including building a new runway long enough to handle the A380 Airbus, and a new terminal that will improve the airport's capacity to one million passengers annually.

"It is an honor to continue to serve the Ministry to help deliver these critical aviation projects," said Mohammed Al Rais, Regional President (Middle East) for Hill's Project Management Group. "Upon completion, they will have an immediate positive impact on both business and tourism in the region," added Al Rais.
