MUSCAT: Oman Air has marked the first anniversary of flights from Manchester airport by introducing a Boeing 787 Dreamliner on the route to Muscat.
The upgrade in aircraft provides more space for passengers and state of the art in-flight entertainment systems, individual seatback screens, audio and video on demand and live satellite TV.
Interim UK and Ireland Country Manager, Kelpesh Patel, said: “Oman Air has had a fantastic year flying on the Manchester-Muscat service and we couldn’t be happier with the support Manchester airport has shown.
“I look forward to cementing our partnership with Manchester airport, and working together to further establish Oman as one of the airline’s key destinations from the north of England.”
Airport aviation director, Julian Carr, said: “It’s fantastic to see Oman Air celebrating their one year anniversary at the airport. Their flights to Muscat and their connections beyond to Africa, Asia and India have proved hugely popular with 22 million people in our catchment area.”
