KOCHI: Oman’s national carrier Oman Air will increase its frequency from Muscat to Kochi from daily services to double-daily services. The increased frequencies to Kochi offer travellers better access to Kerala. In a statement issued here, Oman Air said that Kochi’s role as a major international centre for container transshipment provides important synergies with Oman’s burgeoning cargo sector.
Oman Air also increased frequencies on four of its key destinations to India. The number of flights from Muscat to Goa will increase from six per week to one a day. Daily flights from Muscat to Bengaluru and Kochi will increase from daily to double-daily and will operate 11 flights weekly to Lucknow and 10 to Jaipur.
The additional flights will offer a total of 5,131 more seats to these destinations.
“We are delighted to offer thousands more of air travellers the opportunity to fly between Muscat and four of our key destinations in India. Since we first launched flights to India in the 1990s, demand for seats has been consistently high,” said Paul Gregorowitsch, CEO, Oman Air.
