Oman Air, the national carrier for the Sultanate of Oman, launched its inaugural flight WY295 from Salalah to Calicut (Kozhikode), at 00.40 local time on 27 March 2017.

A cake-cutting ceremony took place at Salalah International Airport, under the aegis of H.E. Sayyid Mohammed bin Sultan bin Hamoud Al Busaidi, Minister of State and Governor of Dhofar. The event was attended by Oman Air Chief Executive Officer Paul Gregorowitsch, along with other high-ranking dignitaries.

Adding to the two flights currently operating between Muscat and Calicut, Oman Air is launching this new daily direct flight between Salalah and Calicut (CCJ), Kerala. The three and a half hour flight, operated by a Boeing 737-800, departs Salalah at 00.40 hrs and arrives in Calicut at 05.50 hrs. The return flight will leave Calicut at 06.40 hrs and arrive in Salalah at 08.40 hrs. (local time).

Oman Air is growing its weekly capacity to India with frequencies increasing on five of the airline’s key Indian destinations.

“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. Our valued guests who want to travel between Salalah and Calicut can now enjoy shorter flights as they don’t have to transfer at Muscat airport.  We are sure that this route will be received well by the discerning guests.
