May 2010 will see Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman, add five new destinations to its rapidly expanding network. The first is Kuala Lumpur, the colourful capital city of Malaysia, which will be inaugurated on the 1st May with four flights a week from Muscat.
This addition will mark Oman Air's 33rd destination and its second 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 those from the Gulf Region and the Sub Continent.
"The beautiful country of Malaysia, which seamlessly weaves together the true wonders of Asia, is as diverse geographically as it is culturally. Providing the perfect getaway for those who want to have a complete change of scenery, one can have a holiday of a lifetime by exploring the country's many splendours. Holidays in Malaysia will offer Oman Air's customers a fantastic travel and holiday experience."
The new route will be operated on Oman Air's recently introduced Airbus A330 aircraft, featuring First, Business and Economy class seating.
Centrally situated within South East Asia, Malaysia is home to amazing world heritage sites, some of the world's best-known dive sites and wonderful national parks. In addition, few cities can match the adventure, shopping experience and hustle and bustle of Kuala Lumpur.
