MUSCAT – Oman Air Flight WY 2843 kicked off today morning with more 300 Filipinos as a unified effort of the Philippine Embassy in Muscat, the Oman government and relevant authorities and officials of POLO, OWWA and Filipino Community Society in Oman for the Pinoy workers who lost their jobs/ contracts expired in the Sultanate due to the pandemic.

In an advisory released June 20, 2020, the Embassy shared, “The repatriation flight was facilitated by the embassy with the support of the Filipino community in Oman to address the requests for repatriation of Filipino nationals affected by the pandemic… As international commercial travel to and from Oman remains suspended, the special repatriation flight affords the opportunity for affected OFWs to return to the Philippines.”

“The Embassy shall endeavour to arrange for subsequent repatriation flights to assist the affected Filipinos. Advisories shall be issued as details of the repatriation flights are finalized,” the embassy added.
