As Oman Air also fly to Baghdad and Damascus this new service will be a godsend for your braindead jihadis. The journey time to the killing fields of the middle east will also be shorter.
Any chance of a thrice daily Male to Mosul Airbus A380 service? That should get rid of the backlog a lot quicker.
