A major upgrade to Oman Air’s Frankfurt service, and the introduction of a new service to Dhaka form the centerpiece of the airline’s newly-announced Winter 2015/16 schedule.
Frankfurt, Germany, is set to become one of the first destinations for Oman Air’s iconic new Boeing 787 Dreamliners when they enter service this autumn. Oman Air’s Chief Executive Officer, Paul Gregorowitsch, has announced that the aircraft will begin flying daily between Muscat and Frankfurt from October 25th 2015.
The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is an all-new, super-efficient family of commercial airplanes that brings big-jet ranges and speed to the middle of the market. In response to airlines’ overwhelming preference, Boeing designed the 787 family with superior efficiency, which allows airlines to profitably open new routes to fly people directly where they’d like to go in exceptional comfort.
