Oman Air (website: www.omanair.aero) has announced that it is boosting the frequency of flights that it operates between London Gatwick and the capital city of Muscat.
From October 26, the national carrier will run one extra weekly service to the popular holiday destination, fulfilling its target of providing a daily service.
The new connection takes to the skies on the same day that Gulf Air launches its London Heathrow to Muscat service via Bahrain.
A dual-cabin Airbus A310 will be deployed on the Oman Air route, offering a choice between business class and economy class service.
Alongside its enhanced Gatwick connection, the carrier will also be increasing the number of flights it operates between Muscat and the Thai capital, Bangkok.
That will offer UK travellers the option of stopping over in the Omani capital before heading on to south-east Asia, with six Bangkok-bound flights departing each week.
Oman Air currently operates a fleet of two Airbus A310 aircraft, four ATR 42 aircraft and ten Boeing 737 aircraft, servicing 27 destinations around the globe.
