Oman Air launches new Tehran service
Oman Air will launch a new daily service between Muscat and the Iranian capital of Tehran from 1st September 2012.
The new Muscat-Tehran route will be operated using Oman Air’s new Embraer 175 regional jets, which offer superb levels of comfort in both Business and Economy Classes. The airline took delivery of two of these much-acclaimed aircraft in 2011 and two more will enter service later this year.
Announcing the new service, Wayne Pearce, Oman Air’s chief executive officer, said: “We are extremely pleased to be launching our new service between Muscat and Tehran and to be offering customers the opportunity to travel aboard our outstanding Embraer 175 regional jets. Tehran offers visitors the opportunity to gain insights into not only Iran’s unique culture, but also its rich and ancient history. Furthermore, Tehran is a major business hub and we anticipate strong demand from both business and leisure passengers.”
In addition to giving travellers from Oman and beyond the opportunity to visit Iran, Oman Air’s new service will offer Iranian visitors the chance to fly non-stop to Muscat.
