Oman Air will launch a new four times weekly flight from Muscat to the Kenyan capital of Nairobi, starting March 27th.
The move is the latest in the airline’s ambitious and dynamic programme of fleet and network expansion.
The service will be operated by a Boeing 737-800 and will depart from Muscat on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, leaving at 14:50 and arriving in Nairobi at 18:55.
From Nairobi, the flights will depart on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, leaving at 00:45 and arriving in Muscat at 06:50.
At Nairobi there will be convenient connections to other points in Africa in cooperation with Kenyan Airways.
Abdulrahman Al Busaidy, deputy chief executive at Oman Air, commented: “This new Oman Air route to the Kenyan capital Nairobi is a significant development for both countries.
“Trade between Kenya and Oman has been growing steadily over the years and I hope this new flight will facilitate the increase in bilateral trade and investment opportunities.
“We are committed to ensuring that our guests have greater choice and the opportunity to discover new destinations with Oman Air and we are delighted to be offering thousands more business and leisure travellers the opportunity to travel between Oman and Kenya (and beyond).”
For travellers to Nairobi, the capital is one of Kenya’s most dynamic cities with a vibrant cultural life, fabulous places to eat and exciting avenues of adventures.
Whether travelling for business or leisure, visitors should take the time to see the wildlife, its national park, climb the mountain of Kilimanjaro, the city’s eclectic National Museum, and visit the beautiful beaches in Mombasa.
