Shaheen Resumes flights to Muscat

Good news for people travelling between Muscat and Pakistan...According to Times of Oman:

MUSCAT — Shaheen Air, Pakistan’s private airline, has announced its decision to restart operations to Muscat. It will launch two direct flights to Lahore from August 10.

Shaheen Air will operate Boeing 737 aircraft, full economy class with 121-seat capacity on Mondays and Fridays. The departure from Muscat is scheduled at 0930 hours on Monday and at 1600 hours on Fridays.

National Travel & Tourism is the GSA for Shaheen Air from Oman offering total travel services through a professional service team.

Shaheen Air used to fly to Muscat regularly, but suspended operations a while back...National Travels even removed the signage of the airline from their offices...

This announcement would appeal to people travelling to Pakistan from Oman, both Omanis and expats, as Shaheen offers relatively lower airfares than other airlines...

That's great news.

Means there will be more flights with passengers taking the VIA route in Oman and raising the number of tourists coming in to Oman.

Any ideas about the ticket prices, though?

Generally Muscat-Lahore returns go for OMR 98 to 115 with PIA, and 95-108 with Gulf Air...Shaheen prices tickets somewhere around OMR 70-85...The fares will be published pretty soon i guess....the airline stopped operations a while back...i do remember them advertising in our school a 30% discount for students...

That's really good price. I hope that doesn't mean they would compromise on quality of services.
