“Oman Air is delighted to be launching a new service between Muscat and Mashhad from June 1. The launch is in response to significant customer demand and we anticipate a high level of early bookings. The service will strengthen the well-established bilateral trade links between Oman and Iran and deliver further opportunities for the two nations,” Oman Air’s Chief Executive Officer Paul Gregorowitsch said.

Oman Air’s Deputy CEO & EVP Commercial Abdulrahman Al Busaidy said that Oman Air’s new service to Mashhad will offer travelers from throughout our international network the opportunity to discover an exciting and vibrant new destination.
