Oman Air has announced its intent to introduce its Airbus A330-200 aircraft to Doha route.
The new aircraft will be deployed from 1 June 2016. The A330s will operate every Sunday, Monday and Tuesday as part of the airline’s schedule of four daily flights to Qatar.
The aircraft offers 20 business class seats and 196 economy class seats, enabling many more customers to fly between the two cities.
The airline now offers 28 flights per week and in 2015, Oman Air carried 134,832 passengers on the route: an increase of 41% on the previous year. The deployment of A330s on Oman Air’s Muscat-Doha service forms part of the airline’s current fleet and network expansion plan. In addition to increasing size of its fleet to 70 aircraft by 2020, Oman Air is unveiling a range of new destinations, increased frequencies and expanded capacity on established routes.
