Now, fly more often to India, Bangladesh and Qatar from Oman

Muscat: Passengers flying out of Oman can now make use of additional flights to India, Bangladesh, and Qatar.

The development comes after the country’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) reached agreements to increase the number of flights between Oman and the three countries.

“Airlines from Oman and India operating between both countries will now have a total of 6,000 seats per week in each direction,” said an official from the CAA.

“This is part of the temporary air bubble agreement reached by the authorities of both countries, which in Oman will affect Oman Air and SalamAir.”

He added, “From the Indian side, their operators have the right to reserve these seats for both Air India and Air India Express.”

Similar cooperation has been reached with air traffic authorities in Bangladesh, said the CAA official.

From 1 January, 2021 onwards, carriers of both countries have been able to operate 12 flights a week.

“We will continue to coordinate our efforts with aviation authorities from multiple countries around the world, based on the needs of the travel market,” he said.
