Oman Air ups frequency to India
Oman Air can now be the airline of choice for travellers in India, UK and Africa, as the national carrier of Oman has improved its flight connectivity to these countries.
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.
