Oman Air Expands India Operation


Over the past years in the Indian market, Oman Air has seen an average rate of close to 80 per cent in seat occupancy and has increased their seat capacity by 30 per cent. “India has always been and will continue to remain a key market for Oman Air. The demand for all 11 of our Indian destinations has always been high and the increased frequencies this year offers more choice and convenience to our guests. The extended traffic entitlements will give a further boost to the tourism sector, prompting many discerning tourists to visit Oman,” Paul Gregorowitsch, CEO, Oman Air, said at a media briefing in New Delhi recently. The dynamic travel industry and forward-thinking aviation sector in India, which is currently the third largest in the world, has made it an important market for the airline.

Divulging more information, he said that the Governments of India and Oman updated their bilateral air services agreement this year. “Oman Air was operating 20,517 seats a week to 11 Indian cities last summer, a figure that is now at 25,584 and will further rise to almost 28,000 by coming winter – enabling more flights,” he said adding that this year onwards Delhi, Calicut and Hyderabad have 21 weekly flights each, and Lucknow operates 14 weekly flights. Starting 01 August 2017, Oman Air will introduce a third daily flight from Mumbai to Muscat, which will increase the weekly capacity from 154 to 161 flights. Read More…
