Muscat Daily - - NATION -

Oman has ap­proved Kish Air­lines from Iran to con­nect Mus­cat with Ban­dar Ab­bas with a weekly flight.

The Pub­lic Au­thor­ity for Civil Avi­a­tion (PACA) gave its nod on Thurs­day. It stated, “The au­thor­ity to­day [Thurs­day] ap­proved Kish Air­lines to op­er­ate one flight a week be­tween Ban­dar Ab­bas and Mus­cat In­ter­na­tional Air­port as of Au­gust 7.”

Mus­cat Daily had bro­ken the story on July 31 about Kish Air­lines ex­pect­ing to start Mus­cat-Ban­dar Ab­bas ser­vice any­time in Au­gust.

The air­line will also restart its flights to Mus­cat from its base in Kish Island soon.

An of­fi­cial of the Kish Air­lines at its UAE of­fice had told Mus­cat Daily then that the air­line was ne­go­ti­at­ing the tim­ing slot for the Ban­dar Ab­bas flight with the Omani au­thor­i­ties. “Also, we will be restart­ing the now sus­pended ser­vice be­tween Mus­cat and Kish Island from Au­gust as well.”

He added that the weekly flight was sus­pended ear­lier in July but will soon restart.

The of­fi­cial fur­ther said that the air­line cur­rently flies one weekly flight each from Shi­raz and Chaba­har to Mus­cat In­ter- na­tional Air­port. The flights run on ev­ery Fri­day. Kish Island was first con­nected with Mus­cat by di­rect Kish Air­lines flight in late 2015. The of­fi­cial said that Shi­raz and Chaba­har flights have now been op­er­at­ing for over a year.
