Oman Air launches new daily flight between Muscat and Manchester
Oman Air will start its new daily flight between Muscat and Manchester starting May 1, 2017; the latest move in the airline's ambitious and dynamic programme of fleet and network expansion.
The daily service from Oman Air will be operated by an Airbus 330-200 and is in addition to the double daily flight from London Heathrow, making Manchester the only airport outside of London to have direct flights to Muscat.
The 7.5 hour flight will depart Muscat International Airport at 1400 and arrive Manchester at 1905.
Paul Gregorowitsch, chief executive officer of Oman Air said: “This is an incredibly exciting expansion in the UK, allowing our guests to enjoy the convenience of flying direct from Oman to the north of England and also the opportunity to connect with Oman Air’s global network. It demonstrates our commitment to developing Oman Air’s global network and in particular catering for the growing demand for our award winning product and inflight service.”
