Oman Air stops flight operations to Pakistan: Here’s why

ISLAMABAD: In a strategic move aimed at enhancing operational efficiency and meeting evolving market demand, Oman Air, the renowned Muscat-based air carrier, has made significant adjustments to its flight operations, including changes in destinations and flight frequencies.
The airline has announced the suspension of flight operations to major Pakistani cities, including the capital Islamabad and Lahore, as part of its broader restructuring efforts. However, in a noteworthy development, Sialkot has been added to Oman Air’s network, reflecting the carrier’s commitment to maintaining connectivity in the region.
These changes come as Oman Air seeks to optimize its route network and improve overall revenue generation. By reallocating resources and adjusting flight frequencies to destinations in Pakistan, India, Sri Lanka, and Bangladesh, the airline aims to streamline operations and enhance profitability.
In addition to the adjustments in South Asian routes, Oman Air has also made strategic decisions regarding its operations in India, with modifications to flight frequencies and capacity enhancements in select cities such as Lucknow and Kerala.
Moreover, the airline has expanded its network by introducing new seasonal destinations, including Trabzon for the summer season and Malé and Zurich for the winter season, catering to increased travel demand during holiday periods.
Highlighting its commitment to meeting the needs of the Omani market and facilitating key travel routes to and from Muscat, Oman Air has fine-tuned its flight timings for popular destinations, ensuring greater schedule efficiency and passenger convenience.
