Zurich for Oman Airways

Oman Air has started a four times per week service between Muscat and Zurich, its sixth European destination.  It is the first time that Oman has been linked to Switzerland with non-stop flights.  A two-class Airbus A330 provides the operation, the same layout as used on the Oman – Bangkok route.

Conservative, with a small c, Oman Air serves from Muscat to Charles de Gaulle, Frankfurt, Heathrow, Milan-Malpensa, Munich and now Zurich, most major points within the Middle East, the Indian sub-Continent, and as far east as Kuala Lumpur.  With the A330s the airline offers a 1+2+1 layout in both First and Business Class, and 2+4+2 at the back end.  Short haul operations are by Boeing 737 NG aircraft and Embraer 175, the Business Class in both cases dedicated with the Embraers just 2+1.  On order is a six-strong fleet of Boeing 787s, due for delivery from 2014. www.omanair.com
