Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman, today celebrates the 28th anniversary of its first ever flight, which took place between Muscat and Salalah in March 1993. The inaugural flight, operated by Boeing 737-300, saw the beginning of the airline’s regional footprint in Oman, and launched four months ahead of its first international flight to Dubai in July the same year.
“Oman Air has come a long way since our beginnings as a regional carrier,” remarked Abdulaziz Al Raisi, CEO of Oman Air. “From connecting local communities here at home, we’ve since expanded our reach to connect Oman to the rest of the world, uniting families and loved ones for 28 years. It’s a milestone that we’re proud to celebrate, and we look forward to continuing our remarkable journey in the years ahead.”
