Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman, will resume its service between Muscat and Malé in the Maldives this October.
Flights to the Maldives will recommence for the 2018-19 winter season from 28 October 2018. The service will be operated with Boeing 737 aircraft.
Oman Air flights from Muscat to the Maldives will operate on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday and the flight from the Maldives to Muscat will operate on Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
Eng. Abdulaziz Al Raisi, CEO of Oman Air said: “We are delighted to be resuming our Maldives route and look forward to welcoming our valued Oman Air guests on board our latest Boeing 737 aircraft. We thoroughly encourage our friends from Europe and the rest of our network, flying to the Maldives to stop over and explore Oman en route. Our new Maldives service offers holidaymakers the perfect opportunity to explore Muscat, the metropolitan capital of Oman before escaping to the beautiful shores of the Maldives.”
Oman Air’s fleet and network has continued to grow. This expansion has been aided by continued investment in Oman Air’s on-board experience, exemplified by the MAX aircraft. By the end of 2018 the Muscat-based airline will have taken delivery of five new MAX aircraft and three 787-9s. By 2022, Oman Air’s total fleet size is expected to be around 70.
The relaunch of the Maldives service comes at an exciting time, as the Omani airline recently started their flights to Istanbul in June with operations scheduled to Casablanca in July and Moscow in October.
