Oman Air to resume flight operations from October 1

Oman’s national carrier, Oman Air, will resume its commercial flight operations from October 1 after a seven-month hiatus over the coronavirus pandemic.
The decision comes following the announcement by the Oman airport of the resumption of air traffic for international flights in October.
Oman closed its borders to travelers in March as part of efforts to curb the spread of coronavirus though it continued running repatriation flights of Omanis and the sultanate residents. Oman Air from 1st October will connect Muscat with London, Istanbul, Frankfurt, Cairo, Mumbai, Delhi, Kochi, Dubai, Doha, Dar Es Salaam, Zanzibar, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Lahore and Islamabad, with more destinations to be added in the near future, the airline has indicated. Travelers are required to observe anti-coronavirus protocol: wear masks on board the aircraft and in Oman’s airports, distancing while guests board and exit the aircraft. Oman Air was operating more than 50 routes in October last year.
