Oman Air has com­pleted two years in Goa. So­rial says the jour­ney has been very suc­cess­ful so far. “We started with four flights and to­day we have seven flights. We have new re­cruits and have put in a lot of em­pha­sis on our peo­ple.” In In­dia, Oman Air has just in­creased ca­pac­ity by 6000 seats which in­cludes for me­trop­o­lis and Cali­cut in Ker­ala. “In Goa, the mo­ment we see we are ready, the con­nec­tiv­ity will be tweaked,” he adds.

So­rial says In­dia is a very big mar­ket and has huge po­ten­tial for the air­line. “We have a big force of In­di­ans work­ing for us at Oman and In­dia is the third largest rev­enue gen­er­a­tor for us. We are study­ing in In­dia to cover new des­ti­na­tions and sec­tors and once we de­cide on it we will launch it,” he adds. Goa is a leisure des­ti­na­tion and com­pe­ti­tion for Oman Air is not as fierce as it is in other sec­tors, he says. “We have Qatar Air­ways and other low cost car­ri­ers and hence I can see a big op­por­tu­nity here in this state,” So­rial says, adding that their fo­cus is on Europe and Lon­don (UK) cur­rently. “We have changed the sched­ule and con­nec­tiv­ity at Frank­furt and it will help Goa a lot. The fo­cus is to get more Euro­pean pas­sen­gers to Goa,” he adds.
