Oman Air will commence a new daily flight from Muscat to Istanbul on June 1st.
This is one of many strategic moves in the airline’s ambitious and dynamic programme of fleet and network expansion.
The national carrier of the sultanate of Oman, the airline’s holiday division has also come up with exciting holiday packages offering tickets, hotel stay, airport transfers and excursions at a very competitive rate.
Omanis travelling to Istanbul are eligible for visa on arrival.
The new route comes ahead of other new routes - to Casablanca and Moscow - set to launch in July and October of this year respectively.
The Istanbul service will be operated by a Boeing 737-800 and will depart daily from Muscat to Istanbul Atatürk International Airport.
With a flight time of five hours and 25 minutes, Flight WY163 will depart Muscat daily at 20.00, arriving in Istanbul at 00.25.
The return flight WY164 will depart Istanbul daily at 01.25, arriving in Muscat International Airport’s new, award-winning passenger terminal at 07.25.
