Oman Air launches new Muscat-Istanbul route

Oman Air will start a new daily flight from Muscat to Istanbul on 1 June this year –  part of a strategic move by the airline as it expands its fleet and network.

The new route comes ahead of other new services – to Casablanca and Moscow – set to launch in July and October of this year respectively. The Istanbul service will be operated by a Boeing 737-800 and will depart daily from Muscat International Airport to Istanbul Atatürk International Airport.

Oman Air says the new route between Oman and Turkey will strengthen bilateral relations between the two countries, enhancing the trading and tourism prospects.

The opening of the new passenger terminal in Muscat has offered Oman Air guests an improved service and Oman Air is operating up to 200 flights per day from the new state-of-the-art passenger terminal.

The airline also flies to nine destinations in the GCC states, 11 in India, and seven in Europe, apart from its Indian Sub-Continent, Far East and MENA destinations, providing passengers with more choice and easy connections across its network.

Oman Air is currently undergoing an exciting fleet and network expansion programme, which will see the airline operate up to 66 aircraft to around 60 destinations by 2022.
