Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman, has celebrated the first anniversary of its service to Manchester Airport, after operating the route for just over a year.
Following the success of the year-old route, Oman Air started operating a Boeing 787 Dreamliner on the Manchester-Muscat service as of 1 July. The Dreamliner offers guests travelling from Manchester more space and equally more comfort, whilst onboard.
To mark the celebration, Oman Air UK management including Kelpesh Patel, Oman Air Interim Country Manager, and Feysal Nagi Oman Air District Sales Manager as well as key members of Manchester Airport held celebrations at the Oman Air gate. The festivities also marked Manchester Airport’s 80th anniversary.
Julian Carr, Aviation Director for Manchester Airport, said: “It’s fantastic to see Oman Air celebrating their one year anniversary at the airport. Their flights to Muscat and their connections beyond to Africa, Asia and India have proved hugely popular with 22million people in our catchment area. We’re looking forward to working with them to build on their successful first year.”
Kelpesh Patel, Interim Country Manager UK & Ireland, Oman Air, said: “Oman Air has had a fantastic year flying on the Manchester-Muscat service and we couldn’t be happier with the support Manchester Airport has shown to Oman Air. I look forward to cementing our partnership with Manchester Airport, and working together to further establish Oman as one of the airline’s key destinations from the North of England.”
