Maarten De Groof, chief commercial officer at Abu Dhabi Airports said: “Muscat is one of the most popular destinations among UAE citizens and residents, and these four new flights will give them new convenient options to visit Muscat. We are also happy to welcome travelers from Muscat who will enjoy a short flight before arriving in Abu Dhabi, where they will be able to explore the rich cultural, historic and leisure activities and attractions the nation’s capital has to offer.”

De Groof added: “This partnership demonstrates Abu Dhabi Airports’ commitment to continuously developing its network and connectivity, with the aim of providing travelers with ever more choices. We are always keen to attract new airlines to our airport, particularly from popular destinations, such as Oman.”
