‘Air bubble’ seats reduced between Oman and India

The Air Bubble agreement between Oman and India that started from October 1 and effective until November 30 has been revised, according to local media reports. The initial agreement was to fly 10,000 passengers weekly in each direction (so 20,000 passengers in total); this has now has been reduced to 5,000 per week, one way (so 10,000 passengers in total).

Although the report attributed the reduction to some passengers testing positive on arrival in Oman, quoting an official from Civil Aviation Authority, a travel agent mentioned that seats were not fully utilised by the airlines. In the wake of the announcement of the air bubble agreement, private and low-cost airlines from India such as Indigo, SpiceJet and Go Air had also announced their flight schedule between Oman and India.
