IndiGo airlines has announced introduction of new daily non-stop flights connecting Oman's capital Muscat to Mumbai from June 16.


The service is expected to strengthen the airline's presence in the Gulf, where it caters to a large number of Indians, the airline said.

At present, IndiGo operates over 17 flights between India and the Gulf.

"There are strong trade and tourism ties between Oman and India and travellers have requirements of low fares by an Indian airline. We are absolutely delighted to announce the new daily and direct flight between Oman and India, and specifically between Muscat and Mumbai," said Aditya Ghosh, president of IndiGo in a statement.

"Expanding operations on these routes are in line with our growth strategy outlined for Oman," he added.
