Oman Air will launch its newly announced Moscow route on October 28, 2018, and is currently focusing on its dynamic programme of route and fleet expansion.
The Moscow service will closely follow the launch of new routes to Istanbul and Casablanca in June and July respectively.
The new daily flight to Moscow Domodedovo Airport will be operated by a Boeing 737 MAX 8, offering 12 seats in business class and 150 in economy. Flight WY181 will depart Muscat daily at 14:00, arriving in Moscow at 18:55 local time. The return flight, WY182, will depart Moscow at 00:55, arriving at the new passenger terminal at Muscat International Airport at 07:35.
The route will be the only non-stop operation between Oman and Russia, benefiting both business and leisure travellers, in addition to offering seamless connections via Oman Air’s hub to destinations across the globe.
In the following month, Oman Air will also receive the first of its three 787-9 Dreamliner on order, which features a three-class configuration. The carrier unveiled the new First Class Private Suite of its Dreamliner on the opening day of the Arabian Travel Market 2018.
