With daily or dou­ble daily flights to all our eleven des­ti­na­tions in In­dia, we are de­lighted to be of­fer­ing many more air trav­ellers the op­por­tu­nity to fly with us and strengthen our pres­ence in the In­dian mar­ket.

We are con­fi­dent that our ad­di­tional flights will be greeted with en­thu­si­asm by both our fre­quent fly­ers and those who are new to Oman Air.
