Sohar, 4 Nov (ONA) — Sohar Airport today received the first flight of Fly Dubai, thus launching the direct line between Sohar and Dubai International Airport at the rate of two flights per week on Thursdays and Saturdays. The inauguration of this direct line comes as a result of the continuous efforts to promote air traffic in Sultanate’s airports managed by Oman Airports, and to cope with challenges imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The return of international flights from and to Sohar Airport in less than two months, since the lift of the quarantine requirement decision and the requirement of the PCR test upon arrival in the Sultanate of Oman for those who had received the two Covid-19 vaccine doses, reflects the magnitude of efforts made by Oman Airports in the aspects of uplifting the operational scale of Sohar Airport, as well as the importance of the airport’s strategic status. The launch of this new line will greatly serve both countries as it will revive the economic and tourist activity in the Governorates of North and South Al Batinah.
With the resumption of passenger flights at Sohar Airport, Oman Airports look forward to strengthening contribution to informing passengers and visitors of all the outstanding tourist and attractions offered by the city of Sohar.
