Bubble pact for air travel between Oman and India

3 Oct 2020

The civil aviation authorities in Oman and India have agreed to resume limited scheduled air transport operation between the countries according to an Air Travel Bubble Arrangement. 

The temporary arrangement, which has been coordinated through diplomatic channels to be applied until the end of November 2020, will allow the national air carriers of both sides to operate two weekly scheduled flights between Muscat International Airport and 11 destinations in India. 

‘The arrangement, which will facilitate the air transportation of nationals and residents of both countries, is limited to transfer up to 10,000 passengers weekly by the national airlines of each side taking into consideration the implementation of the COVID-19 precautionary measures,’ Civil Aviation Authority, Oman stated. 

The agreement came into effect on October 1. 

The operations will be subject to strict adherence to the standard operating procedure (SOP) issued by the civil aviation authorities and other COVID-19 related guidelines issued by the authorities of both sides.

Tickets for the flights can be sold through the airlines’ websites or through sales agents or the Global Distribution Systems.
