Oman Air will return to scheduled international service on Oct 1, offering flights to 16 cities in 12 countries, reports Arabian Business.

International flights were suspended from March in a bid to curb the spread of coronavirus.

The sultanate has had over 87,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus, and its death toll stands at 734.

“Flights will be scheduled according to health data for specific destinations and according to bilateral agreements with other airlines,” said a statement from the Oman News Agency.

So far, the airline will connect Muscat with London, Istanbul, Frankfurt, Cairo, Mumbai, Delhi, Kochi, Dubai, Doha, Dar Es Salaam, Zanzibar, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Lahore and Islamabad.

More destinations are promised to be added soon.

This means Oman Air will join with other Gulf airlines in providing a link between Malaysia and a growing list of destinations, this time via Muscat.

Flights to India are subject to Indian authorities lifting restrictions for scheduled international passenger flights.

The national carrier of the sultanate of Oman is promising to maintain its comprehensive safety programme throughout all elements of the journey to ensure that guests can fly confidently.

Masks will be required when on board the aircraft and in airports.

Social distancing will be maintained while guests board and exit the aircraft, which are carefully cleaned after each flight and at the end of every day.

Cabin crew will all wear a full set of personal protective equipment, and meal service has been modified to further ensure safety.

Oman itself is a wonderful place to visit, with plenty of rugged outdoor activities including climbing in the Jebel Akdar mountains, wadi bashing through dry desert ravines in souped-up 4-wheel-drive vehicles, and of course every kind of aquatic activity in the crystal clear waters of the Gulf of Oman and Arabian Sea.

Requirements for those who plan to travel to Oman will be announced soon.
