Oman Air, the national carrier of Oman, has officially announced the launch of the airline's new direct daily flights from the southern Omani city, Salalah to Calicut, Kerala in India beginning on March 27. These new flights are included in Oman Air's new flight services between Muscat and Kozhikode.

In its official statement, the airline said that flights to new destinations are part of Oman Air's goal to meet its "fleet and network expansion." A Boeing 737-800 will be the one operating the airline's new direct daily flights where each flight will usually take up to 3 and ½ hours, Breaking Travel News reports.

The daily flight will depart from Salalah at 01:10 and is expected to arrive in Calicut at 06:20. On the other hand, the return flight will be out from Calicut by 07:00 and will arrive back to Salalah by 09:15.

Since the month of February, Oman Air's existing frequencies between Muscat and Calicut have been multiplied to two daily from the previous one daily, Zawya says. In a statement, Oman Air's Chief Executive Paul Gregorowitsch said, "Oman Air is committed to support the economic development of the Dhofar region, which is a key market for us. We are extremely happy to announce this new direct service between Salalah and Calicut."

Further, Gregorowitsch also confirmed that Oman Air's customers who desire to travel between Calicut and Salalah will never have to go on a longer flight because the recently launched daily flight will let the passengers go to Salalah and Calicut without transferring at the Muscat Airport. "We are sure that this route will be received well by the discerning guests," he added.

As of this day, Oman's national carrier is continuously increasing the airline's weekly capacity India by adding frequencies on the five key destinations of Oman Air in India. From twice daily, flights to Mumbai, Hyderabad and Delhi have already increased to three per day.

"More travelers will have the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the Dhofar region with cool and refreshing weather, which contrasts sharply with the hot, dry climate to be found elsewhere in the region. In addition, visitors will also be able to make the most of the region's renowned hospitality, ancient culture and awe-inspiring landscapes," Gregorowitsch said.
