Oman Air Cargolux has announced the addition of Chennai to its network, expanding its air freight services from Oman to India.
The cooperation established between the two companies will allow Cargolux to use Oman Air's experience of flying to a range of global destinations, including 11 destinations in India. In addition, it will enable Oman Air to expand its cargo operation and build on the range of initiatives the airline has introduced over recent years.
“They will give an important boost to the development of the Sultanate of Oman as a global cargo hub," Mafoodh Al Harthy, chief sales officer at Oman Air, said. "Our new services will generate increased cargo traffic that will not only attract important revenue streams, but will also demonstrate to the global market the outstanding, modern cargo infrastructure that Oman offers.”
It is anticipated that the partnership will build on the success of the newly launched services by expanding its air freight services from Oman to destinations in China, Europe, Africa and the United States.
