Oman Air has added Athens to its expanding network. Starting from June 2019, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman will be operating daily flights between Muscat and Athens.

Oman Air flights to Athens, WY 191, will depart Muscat at 1445 and reach Athens at 1950 hrs. The return flight will depart Athens at 0020 and arrive in Muscat at 0635 hrs. The airline will be deploying its new-state-of-the-art Boeing 737 MAX aircraft on this route.

Abdul Aziz Al Raisi, Chief Executive Officer, Oman Air said, “We are extremely proud and happy to add Athens to our rapidly growing network, as the first of several new routes to be launched in 2019. Oman has strong bilateral relations with Greece and the introduction of this new flight will certainly help strengthen relations even further. The new route will also enable Oman Air’s guests to explore a remarkable city with an ancient civilization, steeped in history and amazing landscapes.”

Currently, Oman Air is undergoing a fleet and network expansion programme, which will see the airline operate up to 70 aircraft to around 60 destinations by 2022.
