Oman Air, the National Carrier of the Sultanate of Oman, is to launch a new service between Muscat and Milan this week.

Oman Air’s internationally-acclaimed A330 aircraft will touch down at Milan’s Malpensa Airport for the first time on Friday, 3 December and the airline will then operate four flights per week in each direction.

Announcing the new route, Oman Air’s Chief Executive Officer, Peter Hill, says, “We are delighted to be launching our new service to Milan; our 41st destination and the ninth we have unveiled this year. As Italy’s capital of culture, design and fashion, and one of the world’s great business and financial centres, Milan is sure to be a popular destination for travellers from Oman and from many other destinations within our rapidly-expanding network. The new service also offers travellers from Italy a great opportunity to discover the beauty and hospitality of Oman.”

“Over the last year, Oman Air has redefined air travel, setting new standards for comfort and luxury in every class, introducing state-of-the-art in-flight entertainment, including live satellite TV, and pioneering in-flight mobile phone and wi-fi connectivity. I am sure that this level of sophistication will be greatly appreciated by customers on this new service and we look forward to welcoming them aboard.”

Milan is renowned as one of the world’s most dynamic and creative cities. As a global centre of the fashion business, it is home to designers such as Armani, Versace, Valentino and Prada, and many labels own shops in the city, offering an outstanding range of choices for visitors.
