Oman Air is introducing three new summer routes

Posted 27 March 2017 · Add Comment

There are three new routes being introduced during the summer schedule: a four-weekly service from Muscat to Nairobi, Kenya; a daily direct service between Salalah and Calicut in India and a daily direct service between Muscat to Manchester, UK, from May 1, following the acquisition of new B787-9 aircraft at the end of April.

The new schedule will also see a number of flight changes. Flights from Muscat to Frankfurt will now depart in the early morning, rather in the afternoon, which will enable passengers to take advantage of connecting flights with Lufthansa to 59 additional destinations in the US and Europe. In Frankfurt and Munich, Oman Air will relocate to the Lufthansa Terminals (1 and satellite 2) and offer premium customers access to the Lufthansa lounges. Oman Air’s Frankfurt and Munich services will now carry a Lufthansa code share. 

The service from Muscat to Chittagong, Bangladesh, will increase from four times to six times per week, while the frequency of flights to Hyderabad, India, will increase from twice to thrice daily. This growth in capacity follows the agreement between the Indian Government and Oman Air to increase the number of weekly seats.

Paul Gregorowitsch, chief executive officer, Oman Air said: “Our summer schedule demonstrates how we are continuing to grow our already expansive network and capitalize on new opportunities. We are continuously striving to offer our guests the best possible service; our new schedule offers an even greater choice and ensures that our award winning airline provides a truly seamless travel experience.”

From June 25, Oman Air will increase due to high demand the capacity on its Bangkok (three per day) and Kuala Lumpur (two per day) services. Special code-share agreements have also been agreed with Lufthansa and United Airlines for North Atlantic traffic.
