Cargolux Airlines International S.A. has completed a cooperation agreement with Oman Air that creates new opportunities for the Luxembourg-based carrier in sea-air freight transport from Oman’s modern port facilities and, at the same time, benefits the economy of the Sultanate of Oman. Cargolux freighters will use Oman Air’s facilities in Muscat.
The agreement includes an introduction of Cargolux’s full freighter services from Luxembourg to Chennai, India, via Oman. The first flight operating under the cooperation agreement will leave Luxembourg on 15 April and arrives at Muscat airport on 16 April. Additionally, Cargolux’s customers in Oman benefit from fast and reliable connections across the airlines worldwide network.
Cargolux intends to expand its Oman flights during 2015 to several weekly services with onward connections to multiple Indian cities including, but not limited to, Chennai, Bombay and Hyderabad. Additional connections to China, Europe, Africa and the US are also planned.
