MC Jose, CEO, Projects & Logistics at Khimji Ramdas, in his comments, said, “The state of Gujarat is a fast growing State in India and Ahmedabad is the business capital. It is one of the fastest growing regions in India and is also one of the most industrialized. It houses some of India’s major corporate houses as well as International companies. We have been very keen on bringing Spice Jet to Oman to offer especially Destination Gujarat travelers a fantastic option.”
The conveniently timed evening departure from Ahmedabad will also benefit the sizeable number of people that come into Oman from western India. Onward domestic destinations operated with a non-stop flight from Ahmedabad include Bangalore, Chennai, Delhi, Goa, Hyderabad, Jaipur, Mumbai & Pune.
Cashio Vettom, Sr. Divisional Manager, Khimji’s House of Travel, GSA for SpiceJet in Oman in a pre-launch briefing with officials, commented, “The non-stop flight to the city of Ahmedabad will be of great convenience not only to those travelling to that city but also to those going onward to the surrounding cities like Bhuj, Mandvi, Bhavnagar, Jamnagar, Junagadh, Surat, Vadodara, Rajkot and also Udaipur, Mt Abu and Banswara in bordering Rajasthan. We are confident that the travel trade in Oman as well as the general public will see this as an attractive new option for those wanting to fly to western India and onward.”
Speaking about the new flight, Pankaj Khimji, Director of the Khimji Ramdas Group, said, “We are pleased to have non-stop connectivity between Muscat & Ahmedabad. Trade and Cultural ties between the western Indian state of Gujarat and the Sultanate of Oman dates back to over thousands of years, and continues to thrive even to this day. The flight will definitely benefit the business community on both sides and lead to even stronger relations between India & the Sultanate of Oman.”
