Daily flights from Muscat to Bangalore and Kochi will now be twice-daily. The carrier will also operate 11 flights weekly to Lucknow and 10 to Jaipur.

Oman Air flies to 19 destinations in the Indian subcontinent that include India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and the Maldives, out of which 11 destinations are in India.

The Chief Executive Officer of Oman Air, Paul Gregorowitsch, commented:
“Since we first launched flights to India in the 1990s, demand for seats aboard Oman Air’s outstanding aircraft has been consistently high. We will now offer daily or double-daily flights to all eleven of our destinations in India.

“Our new flights to Goa, Bangalore, Kochi, Lucknow and Jaipur will offer even greater choice and convenience for both leisure and business travellers. Therefore they will not only support the growth of tourism in Oman and India, but will also help to promote vital trading partnerships between our two countries.
