Oman Air to fly to Najaf in Iraq from next month

Muscat: Oman Air has announced that it will begin operating a four-times weekly service from Muscat to Najaf, Iraq in November.
Officials note that the flights will further strengthen political, economic and cultural ties between Oman and Iraq.
Regarding the new flights to Iraq, Paul Gregorowitsch, Chief Executive Officer at Oman Air, said, “Following a temporary delay of our service to Najaf, as the operational teams were assessing and scheduling all fleet types for safe deployment on the route, Oman Air is delighted to start this service as our first destination in Iraq. The holy city of Najaf offers excellent potentials for business travellers, those visiting friends and family, and for pilgrims. We anticipate a high demand.”
The addition of this route demonstrates Oman Air’s continuing commitment to growth and expanding its network. This has seen the company take delivery of new aircraft, introduce a range of new destinations and launch new products and services.
