The pre­mium lux­ury air­line has in­creased its weekly fre­quency from 126 to 161 flights per week be­tween Oman and its 11 des­ti­na­tions in In­dia. With this de­vel­op­ment, Oman Air’s fre­quency has in­creased from two to three flights per day to Mum­bai, Delhi and Hy­der­abad, from one flight to three flights per day to Cali­cut and from 11 flights to 14 flights per week to Luc­know.

Speak­ing re­gard­ing the fre­quency in­crease from Goa, where they had a busi­ness meet, Ihab A. So­rial, Se­nior Vice Pres­i­dent–In­ter­na­tional Sales, Oman Air, ob­serves, “In­dia has huge po­ten­tial for Oman Air. The po­ten­tial is not just be­tween Oman and In­dia, but also be­yond, as we have a lot of traf­fic and busi­ness with Europe, Gulf and Africa as well. Through us, In­dian trav­ellers can travel to all these des­ti­na­tions.” The Goa meet of the air­line also saw in pres­ence Su­nil V.A., Se­nior Man­ager Sales–In­dian Sub­con­ti­nent, and Bhanu Kaila, Coun­try Man­ager–In­dia.

The in­creased con­nec­tiv­ity comes in line with the re­cently signed agree­ment be­tween the gov­ern­ments of Oman and In­dia, where both the coun­tries have agreed to in­crease the weekly seats.

On the other hand, Oman Air launched its in­au­gu­ral flight to Nairobi in Kenya on March 28. The four times in a week flight of­fers great con­nec­tiv­ity to Africa for trav­ellers from In­dia. Sim­i­larly, the air­line has launched a new daily flight be­tween Mus­cat and Manch­ester on May 1, 2017. The daily ser­vice from Oman Air is in ad­di­tion to the dou­ble daily flight from Lon­don Heathrow. This would fur­ther aid In­dian trav­ellers. Thanks to this, In­dian trav­ellers would now be able to fly to Manch­ester via Mus­cat as well. Be­sides, Oman Air has a daily flight be­tween Oman and Goa.

The po­ten­tial is not just be­tween Oman and In­dia, but also be­yond, as we and busi­ness with Europe, Gulf and Africa as well.
