An Oman Air flight with 106 people on board was forced to return to Muscat airport on Monday following damage to one of the cockpit window, the carrier has said.

“Oman Air flight WY3905, Muscat to Salalah departing 18.25, returned to Muscat International Airport shortly after take-off at 18.30 on Monday 17th June, following damage to its cockpit window,” the airline said in a statement.

“An investigation is now being carried out into the cause of the damaged window. Oman Air has one of the youngest fleets in the skies, with an average age of less than five years... Oman Air is sorry for the resulting disruption to travel plans, but our over-riding concern remains the safety of our all our customers and crew,” it added.

A total of 100 passengers and six crew members were on board the Boeing B737-800 and there were no injuries.
