According to the Lebanese delegation Oman is the only GCC country, which does not have a direct air link to Lebanon. “Lebanese are very interested in coming to Oman for business and tourism. And so, I think it is important to re-establish the air link between Lebanon and Oman,” said Karim A Kobeissi, who along with other officials of Petroleb, a Beirut-based oil firm met H E Dr Mohammed bin Hamad al Rumhi, Minister of Oil and Gas.
He said, “The direct flights between both countries were suspended last year. We don’t know the reason. Our former ambassador to Oman, Houssam Daib contacted many officials here and tried to resume the flights. The ambassador was promised that links would be re-established soon but nothing happened.”
