Muscat: National carrier Oman Air announced on Monday that both of its daily Muscat to London flights will move to Terminal 4 at London Heathrow Airport from January 31, 2017.
Currently, the two daily Oman Air flights operate from Terminals 3 and 4; their presence at just one terminal of one of the world’s busiest airports will further streamline the customer’s journey on one of Oman Air’s flagship routes.
Terminal 4 offers visitors a world-class shopping experience, with retail shops, book stores, electrical outlets, souvenir shops and much more.
Oman Air passengers using Terminal 4 will continue to have usage of the designated lounge providing premium passengers state-of-the-art facilities prior to their flight.
Oman Air’s first service between Muscat and London was launched in 2007.
It departs Muscat at 14.00 and will now arrive at Heathrow Terminal 4 at 18.20. Return flights will depart from Heathrow Terminal 4 at 20.15 and arrive in Muscat the following morning at 07.35. The second service, launched earlier this year, flies through the night, departing Muscat at 01.25 and arriving at Heathrow Terminal 4 at 06.30. Return flights depart Heathrow Terminal 4 at 08.25 and arrive in Muscat at 18.55. All timings quoted are local.
Oman Air believes that customer experience is paramount and has an enduring commitment to ensuring they are the airline of choice. Having both daily Oman Air flights departing from Terminal 4 would also help deliver seamless customer experience that Oman Air is known for.
The double daily flights to London means that not only does Oman Air offer great connections via Muscat, but would also offer superb connectivity to the North Atlantic, with major cities in the United States and Canada in reach with short connection times at Heathrow of less than three hours
