Muscat: 5 hours and 47 minutes ago
Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman, will add five new destinations to its rapidly expanding network from May.
The first one is Kuala Lumpur, which will be inaugurated on May 1, 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.
“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,” said Peter Hill Oman Air’s chief executive officer.
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, he added.
