Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman, will be commemorating its flights to the Sri Lankan capital of Colombo on Friday.
The flights to this destination were launched in November last year with four weekly frequencies between Muscat, capital of the Sultanate of Oman, and Colombo.
Eng Sultan Hamdoon Al Harthi, President of the Muscat Municipality, will be the chief guest for the launch celebrations that will have a high-level delegation from Oman Air, led by Oman Air's Chief Executive Officer Peter Hill, along with other Senior Management team who will be in Colombo for this purpose.
Hill said: "Sri Lanka has proven to be a welcomed addition to the ever expanding Oman Air network. We have reasons to believe that our customers are thrilled with this destination, as Sri Lanka has everything a tourist wants to explore, experience and see."
The airline has deployed its new A330 aircraft on this route. "Our service to Colombo is also viewed as a boon by the many Sri Lankan expatriates in Oman," he said.
