Oman Air, the national carrier for the Sultanate of Oman, is reviewing its route network with a view to further expanding its destinations in Africa.
The airline already flies to Cairo in Egypt, Nairobi in Kenya, Zanzibar, Dar Es Salaam in Tanzania and recently on July 1st launched its four times weekly service to Casablanca in Morocco.
The airline says its Network and Planning team is working hard to assess the viability of other new routes. The airline discloses that Khartoum in Sudan is being investigated thoroughly as a potential addition. “With the established Sudan diaspora in Oman, Khartoum is a strong favourite to be amongst the new additions to Oman Air’s African network in 2019,” it explains.
The African routes are already very popular with Oman Air guests and the airline has recently increased its summer schedule to Egypt from 10 flights a week to 12 due to the demand for the thriving metropolis of Cairo which spreads along the world famous River Nile.
Last year, Oman Air launched its four times weekly service to Nairobi, the capital of Kenya and one of its most dynamic cities with a vibrant cultural life, fabulous places to eat and exciting locations to visit. The seven times weekly service to the popular archipelago of Zanzibar has been a longstanding favourite with holidaymakers with its vibrant atmosphere and culture.
The most recent addition of Casablanca in Morocco demonstrates Oman Air’s commitment to expanding the network and its focus on the African market.
As with the majority of new routes, Oman Air aims to strengthen the bilateral relations with all destinations in its growing network.
