(eTN) – The national airline of the Sultanate of Oman has just announced changes in their scheduling for flights from Muscat to Zanzibar. Effective mid-May, the airline will offer convenient connections from their four key destinations in India, Dehli, Mumbai, Bangalore, and Chennai, operated three times a week on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Saturdays. The airline also announced that travelers to Zanzibar, or in fact from Zanzibar, can also easily connect to other Oman Air network destinations in Muscat.

The new connections will be a boost for tourism to Zanzibar, but also for increased trade links and have been welcomed by the tourism sector and the business community on the islands.

Oman Air has already been flying to Tanzania’s commercial capital of Dar es Salaam, and the addition of Zanzibar shows strong confidence in the growing demand for the destination. Zanzibar has often complained that tourists destined for the resorts on the islands have to catch connecting flights in Dar, extending the journey unnecessarily, and have improved the international airport in recent years to attract more carrier to fly directly into Zanzibar.
