Muscat: Oman Air announced that it would continue cancelling further flights during the new year, due to the grounding of Boeing 737 Max aircraft since March 2019.
The measure will affect flights scheduled for January 2-31 to several cities, including Mumbai, Kozhikode, Hyderabad, Katmandu, Colombo, Dubai, Medina, Salalah, Jaipur, Nairobi, Amman, Athens, Lucknow, Karachi, Hyderabad, Casablanca, Zanzibar, Dar es Salaam, Bahrain, Zurich, Delhi, Bangkok and Dammam.
Oman Air has five 737 Max grounded and 25 in order, which are yet to be delivered.
The airline will suspend the operation of its flights to Athens, from February 2 as the grounding of 737 Max aircraft has affected the smooth operation of its scheduled flights.
Boeing and the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) confirmed they are reviewing a wiring issue that could potentially cause a short circuit on 737 MAX, Oman Observer reported.
