Oman Air is aiming to add two Moscow and Khartoum to its list of destinations during the second quarter of this year, it has been reported.

Philippe Georgiou, chief officer (corporate affairs) also told the Times of Oman that the airline would be receiving two Embraer 175 planes this month and another Airbus A330 200 later in May.

“We are planning to add Moscow as our next immediate destination. Russia has strong economic ties with Oman, which is gaining momentum now," he told the paper.

Georgiou said the airline was also planning to start operations to Khartoum in Sudan.

Georgiou said Oman Air now operates to 40 destinations in the Gulf, East Africa, Europe and Asia.

He added that Oman Air was in year two of a five-year strategy.

"According to the plan, the airline will make profit at the end of the fifth year,” he told the paper.
