Recently, Oman Air celebrated 25 years of its service to India. The flag carrier of the Sultanate of Oman that started its India operations in 1993, now operates 161 weekly flights to India. The airline serves 51 destinations on its fleet of 54 aircraft.

However, this year, in particular, has been of great significance to Oman Air, as it touched the 80 per cent mark in seat occupancy in addition to having a 25 per cent increase in premium cabin passengers.

Eng Abdulaziz Al Raisi, Chief Executive Officer, Oman Air said, “We are bullish on India, as it is a significant destination for Oman Air both in terms of increasing tourism traffic and in promoting vital trade agreements between the two countries. Since the commencement of operations to India first, the network has grown from strength to strength and I am delighted to have the opportunity to thank all of those who have made our expansion possible. I am also very grateful to the cooperation between the governments of Oman and India whose agreement has allowed us to increase the number of frequencies and available seats.”

Besides, Oman as a destination is witnessing a rapid inflow of Indian visitors, owing to its growing demand as a leisure, wedding, and MICE spot. This has further strengthened the airline’s international network and passenger connectivity.
