Oman Air launches new daily flight from Manchester

Posted 8 November 2016 · Add Comment

Oman Air is to launch a new daily flight from Manchester to Muscat starting May 1, 2017.

The daily service to Oman Air’s hub in Muscat will take 7.5 hours and will be operated by a Boeing 787-800 Dreamliner 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.

Simon Cook, country manager UK & Ireland at Oman Air said: “This is an incredibly exciting expansion in the UK, allowing British travellers to enjoy the convenience of flying direct from the north of England to Muscat 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 from the UK for our award winning product and inflight service.” 

Stephen Turner, Manchester Airport commercial director, said: “We’re pleased that Oman Air is announcing a daily service to Muscat for summer 2017. Once again, Manchester Airport will be the only UK airport outside of London able to offer a key long haul service. 

“We’re sure the 22 million people in our catchment area will be impressed by Oman Air’s fantastic on-board product and will take advantage of the direct route to Oman as well as extensive onward connections available from Muscat.”
