Oman Air has announced plans to introduce Business Class cabins to four of its most popular eastbound routes.
From 1st October, customers will be able to enjoy Oman Air’s comfortable, stylish and award-winning Business Class service on flights from the airline’s home base of Muscat to Calicut, Lucknow and Jaipur, in India, and to Chittagong, in Bangladesh.
Oman Air operates Boeing B737s on all routes to the sub-Continent and, in response to phenomenal demand, has previously offered only Economy Class cabins to Calicut, Lucknow, Jaipur and Chittagong.
However, the continued growth of India’s dynamic economy has seen demand for Business Class seats on these routes steadily increase and it is now clear that the introduction of premium seats will be greeted enthusiastically by customers. In addition to business travellers, the routes meet the needs of leisure and VFR (visiting friends and relatives) air travellers.
Oman Air’s routes to the sub-Continent are some of its longest-established international services, laying the foundations for the airline’s subsequent expansion into the long haul sector. That expansion has seen Oman Air introduce routes to Europe, South East Asia and East Africa.
In parallel with the expansion of its network, Oman Air has raised the bar for premium travel. Earlier this year, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman Air was named ‘Middle East’s Leading Airline – Business Class’ and ‘Middle East’s Leading Airline – Economy Class’ at the World Travel Awards, and ‘Best Staff Service – Middle East’ at the World Airline Awards – SKYTRAX.
