Posted 9 April 2018 · Add Comment

‎Qatar Airways will add two additional daily frequencies to Muscat, Oman’s largest city and capital, commencing 10 April and 15 June.

 

The additional frequencies will take the award-winning airline’s daily services to Muscat to seven, and will meet the increased demand of tourists visiting Oman, as well as that of transit travellers flying via Doha to the Far East.

A highly in-demand destination for both tourists and business travellers alike, Muscat is known as a cultural treasure trove, with many lively souqs offering a traditional Arabian shopping experience. Muscat is also home to several magnificent must-visit landmarks, including Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, Al Jalai Fort, Qasr Al Alam Royal Palace and the Royal Opera House Muscat.

Qatar Airways Group Executive Chief  Akbar Al Baker, said: “We are delighted to offer two more daily frequencies to Muscat, one of our most sought-after destinations. These new services, coinciding perfectly with the arrival of the summer holidays, will provide passengers even greater flexibility and convenience in connecting to one of the many destinations on our rapidly-expanding global network. They will also enable more people to experience the delights of Muscat. We look forward to bringing more visitors to Oman, and connecting more Omanis to the world.”

The two additional frequencies will take the airline’s number of weekly flights to Oman to 70 weekly, including 14 flights to Salalah and seven flights to Sohar. The additional frequencies will also provide passengers increased connectivity to in-demand destinations such as Bangkok, London, Manila, Bali, Istanbul, Colombo, Phuket, Kolkata, Jakarta, and Chennai, to name just a few.

The additional frequency commencing 10 April will be served by an Airbus A320, featuring 12 seats in Business Class and 132 seats in Economy Class. This new frequency will be suspended during the holy month of Ramadan from 16 May 2018 until 15 June 2018 and will resume following the Eid holiday. The seventh additional frequency commencing 15 June will also be served by an A320 aircraft.
