Etihad Airways’ the Preferred Choice for Indian Subcontinent Community in Oman
Thanks to its expanding flight network to the Indian subcontinent, Etihad Airways is quickly establishing itself as the first choice premium carrier for expatriate communities living in Oman, say airline executives.
Etihad, the national airline of the UAE, currently provides Oman-based Guests with frequent and convenient connections to eight major destinations in Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka from Muscat, via its Abu Dhabi hub.
“Etihad offers 44 flights every week, via Abu Dhabi, to the Indian subcontinent which provides a vital service and state-of-the-art in-flight product for the strong expatriate communities from these countries who are living in Oman,” said Khondakar Kabir, Etihad’s Oman sales manager.
“With such wealth of destinations it is not surprising that Guests travelling to and from the Indian subcontinent are increasingly choosing Etihad, an airline renowned for convenient flights, superior service and competitive pricing.”
During December Etihad will strengthen its links with Oman’s Sri Lankan community by supporting dinner dances at the Al Falaj Hotel, where more than 900 Guests will enjoy two evenings of Sri Lankan-themed entertainment.
“Etihad enjoys deep-rooted ties with the Sri Lankan community in Muscat and throughout Oman. Guests can travel quickly and easily from Muscat to Colombo, enjoying Etihad’s superior levels of hospitality and service with a minimal transfer period at Abu Dhabi,” continued Khondakar Kabir.
Guests can fly daily between Oman and Sri Lanka, departing Muscat at 23:30 on flight EY708, which arrives, one hour later, in Abu Dhabi at 00:25
After a brief transfer at Abu Dhabi International Airport, Guests can then board EY 201 at 01:45 which arrives in Colombo at 07:35 local time.
In addition to services to the Sri Lankan capital, Etihad currently flies to the Bangladeshi capital, Dhaka; Delhi and Mumbai in India; and Islamabad, Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar in Pakistan.
