Oman Air will operate cargo-only passenger aircraft flights between China and Oman for the Ministry of Health to transport medical supplies and other necessities.

The flights will be operated exclusively for cargo, without passengers, using 100% of the belly capacity on Oman Air passenger aircraft offering 20 to 25 tons for cargo. Each aircraft can carry 11 lower deck pallet positions with cargo

The first flight is scheduled for April 2, 2020 from Muscat to Guangzhou.

It will be followed by an additional flight on April 3, along with more depending on requirements.

An Oman Air official said: “As Oman’s national carrier, we have an important role to play in keeping medical supplies and essential goods moving in to Oman during this unprecedented time. We are proud to do our part in transporting the goods and supporting this initiative and the Ministry’s efforts.”
