Muscat: Oman Air will resume its service between Muscat and Malé in the Maldives this October, the airline announced on Sunday.
Flights to the Maldives with Oman Air will recommence for the 2018-19 winter season from 28 October 2018. The service will be operated by the new Boeing 737 aircraft, with flights from Muscat to Maldives operating on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and the flight from Maldives to Muscat will operate on Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
Eng. Abdulaziz Al Raisi, CEO of Oman Air said: “We are delighted to be resuming our Maldives route and look forward to welcoming our valued Oman Air guests on board our latest Boeing 737 aircraft. We thoroughly encourage our friends from Europe and the rest of our network, flying to the Maldives to stop over and explore Oman en route. Our new Maldives service offers holidaymakers the perfect opportunity to explore Muscat, the metropolitan capital of Oman before escaping to the beautiful shores of the Maldives.”
The Maldives is a beautiful chain of 26 ring atolls, made up of more than 1,000 coral islands, located only three and a half hours away from Oman. Well known for its beaches, blue lagoons and extensive reefs, the Maldives is an incredibly popular tourist destination with an increasing number of international visitors arriving year on year.
The relaunch of the Maldives service comes at an exciting time, as Oman Air recently started their flights to Istanbul in June with operations scheduled to Casablanca in July and Moscow in October. Oman Air continues to be recognised for its award winning on board experience; winning an array of industry awards to add to its growing collection.
