Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman, will resume flights between Muscat and London (Heathrow) starting 22 September, 2021.
The flights will operate three times weekly on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, departing Muscat at 14:25 local time and arriving in London at 19:10 local time. Flights from London will depart at 20:50 local time and arrive in Muscat at 07:15 local time on Monday, Thursday and Saturday.
All flights are scheduled to operate with Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
“Oman Air will maintain its comprehensive safety program throughout all elements of the travel journey to ensure that guests fly confidently. Masks are required when guests are on board the aircraft and in Oman’s airports,” the airline said in a press release. “Distancing is maintained while guests board and exit the aircraft, which are carefully cleaned after each flight and at the end of every day”.
Guests who are planning to travel to Muscat have been urged to visit the Civil Aviation Authority website, caa.gov.om, to ensure they are prepared to comply with requirements to enter the Sultanate.
In recent past, airlines like Emirates, Etihad and Gulf Air have also declared resumption of flights to their destinations in England. This follows after the UK downgraded the UAE, Qatar and Bahrain from red to amber on the UK’s traffic light system.
