Friday, 9 October 2009 13:38

Oman Air said on Thursday it was having to postpone the launch of its four weekly flights to the Maldives and Sri Lanka due to a delay in winning approval from Sri Lanka.

Oman Air planned to inaugurate services on October 10 providing scheduled passenger and cargo air services as part of its international expansion programme using a new fleet of Airbus A330 aircraft.

Barry Brown, Oman Air's chief commercial officer said: "We are extremely disappointed to announce this delay caused by the inability to secure approval from the Sri Lankan Authorities. As a result we plan to inaugurate services to both Sri Lanka and the Maldives with effect from October 17."
