Oman Air is preparing to expand in case the Oman Government withdraws from Gulf Air, its chief executive said.
Speaking about Oman Air's plans to start new routes next year, Abdulrehman Al Busaidy, said that the airline did not envisage new flights this year, but was looking at London and Far East destinations to add to existing routes next year and also increase flights on the existing routes.
However, he hinted that the whole planning hinged on the government's decision on Gulf Air.
He added that even if the Oman government decided to get out of Gulf Air, Oman Air would continue to work closely with the regional carrier.
And, if the Oman Government decided to continue, then the airline would go for some of the routes that it had planned.
