Damman is in Saudi Arabia, near the Bahraini border.
Strange destination for an award, though, given that this is really a business destination in view of the impossibility for most of getting a visa to Saudi Arabia for 'ordinary' tourism.

Indeed, served by the same airport: King Fahd International Airport (DMM), as distinct from AMM (Amman in Jordan) and DAM (Damascus in Syria).
I think we are collectively beating records of pedantry in this thread.
