High-five for the high-flying airline
Date: 11 Apr 2010
The fifth month of the year will see Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman, open five new destinations to its rapidly expanding network. The first one is Kuala Lumpur, the colourful capital city of Malaysia which will be inaugurated on the 1st of May, with four weekly flights between Muscat and Kuala Lumpur. With this addition, Oman Air will mark its 33rd destination and the second one in the Far East, the other being Bangkok. The other four destinations to be opened in May are Ras Al Khaimah, Al Ain, Islamabad and Lahore.
Peter Hill Oman Air’s Chief Executive Officer says:
“This new destination will be a welcome addition to the ever expanding Oman Air network. Kuala Lumpur has been a much-anticipated destination and I’m positive it will be a real winner with our customers, especially from the region and the Sub Continent. This beautiful country, which seamlessly weaves in the true wonders of Asia, is as diverse geographically, as it is culturally. Known to provide the perfect getaway for those who want to have a complete change of scenery, one can have a holiday of their life time by exploring the many splendours of Malaysia. Holidays in Malaysia will introduce Oman Air customers to a fantastic travel and holiday experience.”
The new route will be operated by Oman Air’s recently introduced Airbus A330 aircraft featuring First, Business and Economy class seating.
Situated almost in the centre of Southeast Asia, Malaysia is home to amazing world heritage sites, world’s best known dive sites, children theme parks and national parks. Very few countries can match the pulsating city adventures, shopping experience and the hustle and bustle of the capital city of Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia is just 300 kilometres (187 miles) from Singapore.
