Flag carrier Oman Air has cancelled close to 900 flights during the summer period, following the country’s civil aviation authority's decision to extend the suspension of all Boeing 737 Max flights, said a report.

A total of 877 flights have been cancelled between July 7 and August 31 as a result of the decision, said a report in Time of Oman.

Affected routes include Mumbai, Hyderabad, Jeddah, Dubai, Jaipur, Kathmandu, Colombo, Amman, Kuwait, Medina, Doha, Calicut, Salalah, Riyadh, Athens, Goa, and Jaipur.

The suspension is the latest in a series of cancellations which began in March in the wake of an Ethiopian Airlines crash, it said.
