Oman Air to Resume Zurich Service in Winter Schedule

Oman Air Zurich winter

Zurich ∙ Oman Air, which has omitted Zurich from its summer schedule, will return to Zurich in the upcoming winter schedule. The service will be from October 27 to the end of March 2025. Oman Air will continue to maintain the Muscat – Zurich service as a winter schedule destination only, excluding the summer schedule.

Due to the high temperatures in Oman during the summer months, there are fewer travelers from Europe. But Oman is an attractive destination for Westerners during winter. Oman Air, which stopped booking from March 31 to October 26, is accepting bookings from October 27. Although it is unclear whether the A 330 – 200 aircraft currently in service will continue to operate in the future, the current four-a-week service will continue in the winter schedule. The schedule of flights WY 153 and WY 154 to and from Zurich may also remain unchanged.

With Oman Air withdrawing from the summer schedule, there will be no direct flight connections on the Zurich-Muscat sector during the months of April-October. Although there is no service in the summer schedule, Oman Air is keeping its Zurich office and staff intact. Along with Zurich, Mali and Trabzon (Turkey) will become Oman Air’s seasonal destinations. While Trabzon is serviced only in summer, the other two destinations are serviced only in winter.

Oman Air currently has 45 aircrafts. 10 Airbus A 330, 26 Boeing B 737 and nine 787 Dreamliner aircrafts. Oman Air’s plan is to reduce its fleet to 36-40 aircraft in the medium term, though it has targeted 70 aircraft. Oman Air, which has completely stopped its services to Colombo, Islamabad, Lahore and Chittagong, has added Pakistan’s Sialkot to its list of new destinations. The schedule rearrangements are part of Oman Air’s cost-cutting drive.

Efforts are also underway to market Oman as a tourist destination in the Middle East. There are 50 billion dollars worth of activities in the tourism sector in Oman. If last year 3 million tourists arrived in Oman, Oman aims to increase this to 11.5 million by 2040.
