Oman Air is planning a significant expansion of its India operations.

The Muscat-based carrier aims to add 49 weekly flights to the country within the next two years.

Commenting on the plans Paul Gregorowitsch, CEO of Oman Air said:

“We are in the first phase of trying to look in increasing our frequencies to the existing destinations where we have today 126 weekly frequencies, to 175 per week by 2018.

“We have currently 21,147 seats per week. We are looking to increase it to total 29,820 flights by 2018 and hope to increase further to 40,000.”

The expansion would be subject to the bilateral relations between the two countries.

“India is an extremely important destination for Oman Air and being the fastest growing economy in the world it offers a huge potential,” added Gregorowitsch.

“We at Oman Air and the Oman Government would like to partner further and work together.”

The carrier currently operates flights to Indian destinations including Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Goa, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Kochi, Kozhikode, Lucknow, Mumbai and Thiruvananthapuram.
