MUSCAT: Oman Air, the national flag carrier of Sultanate of Oman, is launching three new routes this year covering Turkey, Morocco and Russia.
The carrier will fly to Istanbul (Turkey) on June 1, Casablanca (Morocco) on July 1 and Moscow will be launched during the Winter Schedule 2018. While Istanbul and Moscow will be served by Oman Air’s Boeing 737-800, Casablanca will be served by 787-8. The direct flight to Moscow will be operated daily and it will be the only non-stop operation between Oman and Russia.
From trading to sharing information, Oman has strong bilateral relations with Turkey, Morocco and Russia, and the introduction of these new flights will help strengthen relations even further. The new routes will also enable Oman Air’s guests to explore three of the world’s most exciting cities.
Apart from starting operations to Istanbul in June, Casablanca in July and Moscow in October, Oman Air is contemplating increasing flights to the existing ones. Abdulaziz al Raisi, acting CEO of Oman Air said, “We are planning ten weekly flights to Milan and Paris. We are also planning daily flights to Guangzhou soon instead of the current four weekly flights.”
Oman Air is currently undergoing an exciting fleet and network expansion programme, which will see the airline operate up to 62 aircraft to around 60 destinations by 2022. The airline is committed to constantly improving its product, whilst undergoing its dynamic fleet and network expansion, developing its brand and offering its guests an unrivalled experience as part of its mission to ‘become the best.’
