    Hi,
    Has anyone flown with Oman Air recently? They are saying we can only take 2 batteries per person. But are being a bit vague. All our batteries are under 100 wh. So they are usually fine to take. I know some airlines interpret the rules differently. are we likely to have trouble at check in if we try and travel with more than 2 per person?

    Hi Anne-Marie,

    Are you shooting in Oman and if so we can help hook you up with a local production service company or location fixer and battery rental there possibly.If not, please tell us where you are shooting so that we can make other suggestions. If Oman Air are telling you it is 2 batteries per person then I would advise against taking more.

    All the best,

    Murray

    Hi Murray,

    We have a fixer in Oman already. Thanks. He’s already looking into local rental options. So hopefully that will work out.

    Good.

    You might find this recent Location Guide contributor article ‘ the cinematic potential of Oman’ an interesting read.

    Hi Anne-Marie,

    Perhaps you would be up for writing a piece like this but for Oman. Shipping in gear, customs, insurance etc…your personal experience?

    The best way is to drive it from Dubai. Not far at all
