Oman Air has released more details about its forthcoming new route between Manchester and Muscat.

As reported by Business Traveller earlier this year, the carrier is to launch a daily flight between the two cities next year, complementing its twice-daily service between Heathrow and Muscat.

The new daily route to and from Manchester will start on May 1, 2017, with the following schedules:

  • Departs Muscat at 1400, arriving into Manchester at 1905
  • Departs Manchester at 2045, arriving into Muscat at 0720 the following day

The service will be operated by an Airbus A330 aircraft (pictured is Oman Air’s B787-9)

Oman Air recently announced plans to consolidate its Heathrow services at T4 from the end of January – the carrier currently operates daily flights into both T3 and T4.
