MUSCAT – Oman Air has launched a new free coach service between Al Ain and airports in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. The service will enable customers to easily access the airline’s international network by simply selecting Al Ain as their origin or destination whilst booking their tickets. Tickets can be purchased online at omanair.com, or through the nearest Oman Air office.
The new coach service has been introduced to offer enhanced convenience for passengers from Al Ain, and to ensure that they start and end their journeys in style and comfort. Oman Air’s vehicles seat 33 passengers and are equipped with climate-control systems and reclining seats. Externally, their unique Oman Air liveries will make a distinctive impression on the busy roads of the UAE, as they make their non-stop journeys between Al Ain and the two airports.
The services will run double-daily between Al Ain and Dubai, and between Al Ain and Abu Dhabi, with a single journey time of approximately two hours.
Mahfood Ali Saleem Al Harthy, Senior Vice President – Sales (GCC and MENA) at Oman Air commented: “We are delighted to announce the launch from 16th August of a brand new coach service connecting Al Ain with airports at Abu Dhabi and Dubai. From there, customers can easily connect with flights to Muscat and onward destinations throughout Oman Air’s growing international network. The estimated travel time to each airport is approximately two hours and, because each coach route is non-stop and direct. So our passengers can arrive relaxed for their flights.
“Oman Air is proud to have a large number of customers travelling to and from Al Ain, each of who enjoys seamless connectivity with our vast network across the globe. This new service underlines our commitment to enabling passengers to reach their destination in the shortest possible time, in total comfort and with the high degree of reliability for which Oman Air is renowned.
