Oman Air’s extensive flight network provides travellers from Russia a wide variety of options including 11 Indian destinations (Goa, Mumbai, Chennai, Kochi, Thiruvananthapuram, Hyderabad, Delhi, Lucknow, Bangalore, Kozhikode, and Jaipur) in addition to Indian Subcontinent destinations such as Maldives, Nepal, and Sri Lanka, all of which are less than a four hour flight from Muscat.
