Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman, started its new service between Muscat and Zurich, in Switzerland on 2nd December 2011. Oman Air offers four flights a week between the two destinations. Zurich is Oman Air’s 41st worldwide destination and its sixth in Europe.
Peter Hill, Oman Air’s Chief Executive Officer, told TravelPlus “We are delighted to launch our new service between Oman’s capital of Muscat and Zurich. Zurich is one of the world’s great financial centres and an ideal gateway for the beautiful Alpine landscapes which are so ideal for both winter and summer sports. “We anticipate that the route will prove extremely popular for visitors from Oman and other Gulf nations, as well as from further afield.
“Equally, the new service will offer the people of Switzerland the opportunity to visit Oman and to experience the unparalleled hospitality, rich culture and dramatic landscapes that are unique to the Sultanate.”
The new service will also offer Swiss travellers the opportunity to experience Oman Air’s luxurious new fleet of Airbus A330 widebody aircraft, which feature the World’s Best Business Class Seat (World Airline Awards 2011) and the world’s first complete onboard connectivity service, which allows passengers to make phone calls, send SMSs, check email and surf the internet. Customers can enjoy unbeatable space and comfort in every class, with extra-long, fully lie-flat seats, each with direct aisle access, in Business Class and First Class.
