Oman Air’s Zurich-Mus­cat flight (WY 154) on Sun­day morn­ing made a pre­cau­tion­ary land­ing in Di­yarbakir, Turkey.

In a state­ment, Oman Air said, ‘Ear­lier this morn­ing, Oman Air flight WY 154 from Zurich to Mus­cat ex­pe­ri­enced a cabin pres­suri­sa­tion fault while in

flight. This re­quired our air­craft to take a pre­cau­tion­ary land­ing in Di­yarbakir, Turkey, which was com­pleted safely. Guests on

board this flight were ac­com­mo­dated in ho­tels in the Di­yarbakir area. We dis­patched a re­place­ment air­craft to Di­yarbakir,

Turkey de­part­ing Mus­cat at 8pm on Sun­day to repa­tri­ate our de­layed guests back to Mus­cat. Our air­ports team worked with the author­i­ties in Di­yarbakir to look af­ter our guests and en­sure their swift and safe re­turn.’

Oman Air said that it re­grets any in­con­ve­nience this may have caused. ‘The safety and wel­fare of our guests and crew is our top pri­or­ity,’ the air­line stated.
