Oman Air, the national carrier of the sultanate, is set to launch new daily flights from its hub Muscat to the Turkish capital of Istanbul starting from June 1. 
 
This is one of many strategic moves in the airline’s ambitious and dynamic programme of fleet and network expansion. 
 
The airline is offering very attractive fares that start from RO99 (   ) for Economy class, which received a big response from travellers. The airline’s holidays division also has come up with exciting holiday packages offering tickets, hotel stay, airport transfers and excursions at a very competitive rate. 
 
Omanis travelling to Istanbul are eligible for visa on arrival.
 
The new route comes ahead of other new routes - to Casablanca and Moscow - set to launch in July and October of this year respectively. 
 
The Istanbul service will be operated by a Boeing 737-800 and will depart daily from Muscat to Istanbul Atatürk International Airport.
 
With a flight time of 5 hours and 25 minutes, Flight WY163 will depart Muscat daily at 8pm, arriving in Istanbul at 00.25am. The return flight WY164 will depart Istanbul daily at 1.25am, arriving in Muscat International Airport’s new, award-winning passenger terminal at 7.25am. 
 
Oman Air said the new route will help strengthen bilateral relations between the two countries, enhance the trading and tourism prospects, and enable its guests to explore one of the world’s most thriving cities. 
 
Intertwining both ancient and modern cultures, Istanbul is right at the heart of Turkey’s economic, historical and cultural heritage. Istanbul is a diverse and vibrant city with much to offer Oman Air guests travelling to this beautiful destination, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
