Oman, Indonesia Agree to Increase Air Connectivity

16 June 2022 11:46 WIB

TEMPO.CO, JakartaIndonesian Ambassador to the Sultanate of Oman, Mohamad Irzan Djohan, and the Head of Oman Civil Aviation Authority, Naif Ali Hamed Al Abri inked the Air Transport Agreement (ATA) on June 15, 2022, in the capital city of Muscat.

The deal was expected to encourage increased connectivity between countries through the development of air transportation as airlines from both countries can operate scheduled international air transport services on predetermined routes.

“This agreement is a legal umbrella for air connectivity that will improve relations between Indonesia and Oman, both people-to-people contact and economic partnership,” said Ambassador Djohan at the signing event which took place at the Oman Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) headquarters in Muscat.

Oman is one of the tourist destinations for Indonesians and travelers from the Middle East. Muscat is also an attractive transit city favored by Indonesian hajj and umrah pilgrims, as well as students in the Middle East.

It is hoped that with the air transportation agreement, Indonesian airlines could take advantage of the business opportunities on the Jakarta-Muscat route.

In the deal, both countries agreed to allow Indonesian airlines to fly directly to Oman cities, such as Muscat, Sohar, and Salalah, while Omani airlines can also operate direct flight routes to Jakarta, Denpasar, Medan, Surabaya, and other cities.
