Taken August 2001 from Muscat to Dubai
The short 35 minute flight between Muscat and Dubai is a real pleasure. On morning flights, which I generally use, you get a continental breakfast with excellent hot croissants, French cheeses, and freshly-squeezed orange juice. Coffee cups are actually ceramic instead of the usual plastic.
The interiors of the ATRs sport leather seats with very comfortable cushions and headrests. For the size of the aircraft, there is a surprising amount of legroom.
The cabin staff is great: lovely S or SE Asian flight attendants and a pleasant, solicitous Omani male steward. Together they make the flight something to be looked forward to rather than dreaded.
I have not used them on long haul flights, though they do serve numerous destinations in the Subcontinent and Sri Lanka. Their single European route is to Zurich in association with Swissair.
Oman Air is a very young airline with a tiny fleet consisting of 1 A-310, 1 B-737-400, 2 ATR-42-500s, and three F-27-500s. The aircraft are all very new and seem to be well-maintained.
