Frankfurt and Dhaka lead the way in Oman Air’s Winter 2015/16 schedule

Oman Air’s service between Muscat and Frankfurt is now operated using the airline’s brand-new 787, which was delivered to the carrier at the beginning of October. Following an inaugural flight from Muscat to Salalah on 18th October, it first flew to Frankfurt on 25th October. Since the route was first launched in 2009, using Airbus 330s, Oman Air has experienced huge demand for seats. Deployment of the Dreamliner, with its enhanced capacity of 18 Business Class and 249 Economy Class seats, enables Oman Air to meet significant ongoing growth within the German market. Furthermore, Oman Air is now the only airline to offer direct flights from Germany to Oman.

Oman Air has also launched a new service from Muscat to the Bangladeshi capital of Dhaka in response to strong consumer demand. The route is Oman Air’s second to Bangladesh and 18th on the Indian Sub-Continent. The service currently offers four flights per week, with six frequencies per week expected from December 1.

Oman Air’s Winter 2015/16 schedule has further changes. One change of note is an increase in the number of flights between Muscat and Paris from four per week to five, effective from October 25. And from the same date, the number of flights from Muscat to Goa increased from four flights per week to six flights per week.

Flights from Muscat to Colombo, in Sri Lanka, have increased in number from 10 per week to double-daily. Flights between Muscat and Dammam, in Saudi Arabia, have increased in frequency from 14 per week to 16 per week. And services between Muscat and Tehran are set to increase from seven flights per week to 10 flights per week from November 15, in response to high levels of consumer demand.

The 787s will also be deployed on services between Muscat and Milan from December 1. The aircraft type will also be deployed on one flight per day between Muscat and Salalah, in the south of Oman, from December 1.

Also within the Gulf region, flights from Muscat to Jeddah and Riyadh will be operated using A330s, superseding the Boeing 737s on the routes. And flights to Khasab, Oman’s northern enclave will be operated using Embraer 175s, which will replace ATR42s currently deployed on the route and are due to be phased out from Oman Air’s fleet.
