A major upgrade to Oman Air’s Frankfurt
service, and the introduction of a new service to Dhaka form the centerpiece of
the airline’s newly-announced Winter 2015/16 schedule.
Oman Air’s service between Muscat and
Frankfurt is now operated using the airline’s brand-new Boeing 787 Dreamliner
aircraft. The iconic jet was first delivered to Oman Air 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.

The launch – also on 25th
October – of Oman Air’s new service from Muscat to the Bangladeshi capital of
Dhaka has similarly been undertaken in response to strong consumer demand. The
route is Oman Air’s second to Bangladesh and 18th on the Indian
Sub-Continent. It provides essential support for Bangladesh’s sizeable
expatriate workforce, as well as increased opportunities for leisure travellers
to discover the country’s extensive natural beauty. The service currently
offers four flights per week, with six frequencies per week expected from 1st
December.
Whilst Frankfurt and Dhaka provide the
centerpiece for Oman Air’s Winter 2015/16 schedule, a wide range of other
changes bring increased choice and convenience for air travellers. One change
of note is an increase in the number of flights between Muscat and Paris from
four per week to five. The change took effect from 25th October. And
from the same date, the number of flights from Muscat to the Indian leisure
destination of Goa increased from four flights per week to six flights per
week.
Meanwhile three more of Oman Air’s most
popular services will also receive a significant boost. 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 15th November, in response to high levels of consumer
demand.
In addition to increased frequencies, Oman
Air’s Winter schedule notes that a number of routes will benefit from upgrades
in the types of aircraft that operate on them. Following the introduction of
Dreamliner flights to Frankfurt, the Boeing 787s will also be deployed on
services between Muscat and Milan from 1st December. Dreamliners
will also be deployed on one flight per day between Muscat and Salalah, in the
south of Oman, from 1st December.
Also within the Gulf region, flights from
Muscat to Jeddah and Riyadh will be operated using Oman Air’s award-winning
Airbus 330s. The aircraft will supersede Boeing 737s on the routes. And flights
to Khasab, Oman’s northern enclave will be operated using Embraer 175s. The
Embraers will replace ATR42s which are currently deployed on the route and are due
to be phased out from Oman Air’s fleet.
Welcoming the changes indicated in Oman
Air’s Winter 2015/16 schedule, Paul Gregorowitsch, Chief Executive Officer at
Oman Air, said:
“As Oman Air’s fleet and network continue
to grow, we are delighted to be offering our customers even greater choice and
convenience. The changes we have announced in our Winter 2015/16 schedule will
introduce greater frequencies to many of our most popular destinations.
Furthermore, the introduction of our Dreamliners to destinations in Europe and
Oman, and the deployment of larger and more modern aircraft on other routes,
will allow us to surprise and delight many more customers.
“All these moves represent a very positive
response to the increases in demand that we are experiencing in markets such as
Germany, India, Saudi Arabia and Iran. However, demand throughout our network
continues to grow. I would therefore advise travellers to book their seats with
Oman Air at the earliest opportunity. Bookings can be made via our website (www.omanair.com) or
through a local travel agent.”

Oman Air’s Winter 2015/16 schedule is in
operation from now until Sunday 27th March 2016.
