As part of Oman Air’s recent plans to make Muscat as a transit hub, the airline service provider is planning to increase its flights to African and Asian countries. As part of this plan, Oman Air might operate flights between Muscat and Coimbatore.
Regarding Oman Air’s India plans, Abdulaziz al Raisi, CEO, Oman Air, has told Oman Daily Observer that the company is planning to double weekly seats between Muscat and India by adding flights to new cities like Mangalore, Coimbatore, and Ahmedabad.
According to Oman Daily Observer, Abdulaziz al Raisi said, “We want the weekly seats between the two countries to be increased to 60,000 from the current agreement of around 27,000. We are looking at cities like Ahmedabad, Mangalore and Coimbatore and also adding capacities to the existing routes with the introduction of wide-bodied aircraft like the A330s and Dreamliners.”
Kongu Global Forum, various trade bodies, Industrialists and general public here have been requesting with airport and aviation ministry authorities for a long time to introduce a connecting flight between any of the Gulf countries and Coimbatore. If this plan gets through, it will be a huge relief for international travelers from Coimbatore.
