Posted 6 June 2019 · Add Comment

Oman Air has commenced direct flights to Egyptian city Alexandria.

Alexandria, Egypt’s second-largest city, is a major economic and industrial centre of the country. With its 30 km coastline extending along the Mediterranean Sea, coupled with its magnificent ambience and rich cultural heritage, Alexandria is also a popular tourist destination.

Oman Air’s chief executive officer Abdulaziz Al-Raisi said: “we are pleased to be offering direct services into the beautiful city of Alexandria, Egypt’s most important seaport, where more than 70% of the country’s imports and exports passes through. Commencement of direct services into Alexandria will allow Oman Air to further expand trade ties between our two countries, as well as drive growth in tourism numbers in both directions. Oman shares an excellent bilateral relation with Egypt, and this new route will further strengthen it. We are confident the sizeable Egyptian diaspora in Oman, consisting of investors and business communities, as well as residents and citizens of Oman, will find the addition of this second destination to Egypt, a welcomed addition to our expanding network.”
