BRITISH AIRWAYS’ DIRECT FLIGHTS CUT FLYING TIME BETWEEN MUSCAT AND LONDON BY MORE THAN TWO HOURS

Dubai, UAE – 31 October 2016: British Airways has launched a direct flight between Muscat and London, further adding convenience to customers travelling between the two regions. The UK carrier, which first began flying to Oman in 1972, inaugurated the new service with a water cannon salute as it landed at Muscat International Airport earlier this morning.

Customers, who previously flew between the two cities via Abu Dhabi, can now experience an uninterrupted service, and a reduced flying time of seven hours and 15 minutes, two and a half hours shorter than the previous nine hours and 45 minutes’ journey. The service is operated by the airline’s Boeing 777, five times per week, featuring four cabins of travel – First, Club World (British Airways’ business cabin), World Traveller Plus and World Traveller (British Airways’ economy cabin).

Anjulika Dutton, Commercial Manager UAE, Oman, Egypt and Central Asia, said, “British Airways has successfully served the Omani market for more than four decades. During this period, we have witnessed a strong growth in passengers travelling between these two regions, and anticipate that this new direct service will further enhance connectivity for business and leisure travellers between Oman and the UK.”

Departing Muscat International Airport at 10.55am, the flight lands at London Heathrow’s Terminal 5 at 2.55pm on the same day, with the return journey departing the British capital at 7.50pm and arriving in Muscat at 7.05am the following morning.

A full timetable of British Airways flights is available online here where customers can find the lowest fares and book, pay and check-in online for their flights.
