Oman Air recently announced its plan to launch new services from Muscat to Manila and Jakarta from December 2014.
The Manila service will commence from 2 December 2014, with Oman Air offering two flights a week, with a third frequency being operated from 13 December 2014. The Jakarta route will be operated from 12 December 2014 with three flights per week, with a fourth frequency being operated from 2 January 2015.
Flights to both destinations will depart Muscat around midday and arrive in the early morning of the following day. Both the new routes will meet strong demand from air travellers in Oman, the Philippines and Indonesia.
Oman Air’s chief executive officer, Paul Gregorowitsch said: “We are very confident that these new routes will prove popular with visitors from Oman and further afield. In addition, both Manila and Jakarta are important commercial Centre’s and we anticipate strong demand from business travellers.”
The announcement of the airline’s new services comes ahead of the arrival of the first of 24 aircraft that the airline currently has on order. Oman Air’s current fleet of 30 aircraft will be joined by three Airbus A330s and 15 Boeing B737s, as well as six Boeing B787 Dreamliners.
