Oman Air’s first flight from its home base of Muscat to the Indonesian capital of Jakarta took off earlier.
The new service will operate four flights per week and will offer convenient connections at Muscat to exciting destinations throughout Oman Air’s rapidly-expanding network.
Furthermore, the new route will utilise Oman Air’s new A330 -300.
Oman Air’s new Airbus A330-300 features 24 new Business Class seats designed by BE Aerospace.
Fitted in a 2-2-2 configuration, each comfortable and spacious 21-inch wide seat converts to a 77-inch long, fully flat bed.
Oman Air’s superb service, state-of-the-art inflight entertainment system and pioneering mobile phone and Wi-Fi connectivity can be enjoyed throughout the aircraft.
Announcing the start of the Muscat-Jakarta service, Oman Air’s chief operating officer, Abdulrahman Al Busaidy said: “We are delighted to now offer air travellers the opportunity to fly with Oman Air to Jakarta.
“Not only is this an exciting and vibrant city, but it also provides a centre from which to explore the cultural richness, natural beauty and geographical diversity of Indonesia.
“I am sure that the service will meet strong demand from both leisure and business travellers and we have already accepted a high level of bookings.
“In addition, the timing of the launch enables us to help reunite families and friends as they come together over the winter holiday period.
“In addition to introducing thousands of travellers from around the globe to the countless attractions of both Jakarta and Muscat, we look forward to welcoming them aboard our superb A330 aircraft.
“Here they will be able to relax, enjoy the flight and experience the very highest levels of comfort, space and on-board service. There really is no better way to fly than with Oman Air, the airline of First Choice.”
