Mohamed bin Hamood bin Zahir Al Toobi undersecretary of Tourism, at the Ministry of Tourism.
Peter Hill Oman Air’s Chief Executive Officer says:
“Frankfurt and Munich are one of our prime target markets in Europe, and with Oman already having made a niche with the leisure travel segment, thanks to efforts of the Ministry of Oman Tourism; we are really excited about the prospects of developing both business and tourist traffic on these new routes. With the unmatched luxury provided by our new fleet of Airbus and the exceptional services both on board and at the airport, we are sure Oman Air will reinforce its position in long haul routes.”
At a time when other airlines are cutting back their services, Oman Air has been embarking on a steady plan of adding more destinations and expanding the fleet size.
Peter Hill continues:
“We are confident that our foray into the very competitive European segment will open up new markets for us as our products are far superior to others. The non-stop flight, better interiors, better amenities and services, we are sure, will get us more people to travel with us. We also have special and introductory prices that we are offering to some of the new routes.”
Oman Air flies four times weekly between Frankfurt and Muscat on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Friday and flies three times between Munich and Muscat on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
