Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman, is highlighting the extra safety measures it is taking during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The airline says that it will provide cabin crew with disposable full-body personal protective equipment (PPE), including a mask, face shield and gloves, which they will wear over their uniforms.
It has not, however, made any prediction as to when scheduled services will recommence.
We are eagerly waiting to serve you again and be a part of your journey.

The airline says that crew members who operate flights will be closely monitored and quarantined upon arrival in Muscat. Crew on quarantine who reside in crew accommodations are moved to a designated building and provided with separate flats while those quarantined in their homes are monitored by the airline’s welfare team and doctors to ensure both their well-being and their adherence to the quarantine requirements.
Oman Air stresses that these policies “along with those that may be established in the future to ensure crew and guest safety, are created in accordance with directives from local and international authorities”.
The airline says that
“In coordination with Ministry of Health, the Public Authority for Civil Aviation and authorities in other countries, the airline is continuously reviewing and revising policies and requirements relating to crew and guest safety to protect crew from Covid-19 and ensure the safety of guests who enter Oman, including transit guests who fly on to other destinations.”
