Beginning in the winter of 2016, the carrier will separate its Abu Dhabi and Muscat services into two flights, and will also split its Bahrain and Doha service. The four separate services will result in 83-percent greater lift capacity for customers in the region, IAG said. A Boeing 787-9 will serve the Abu Dhabi route, while the Bahrain, Doha and Muscat routes will be served by a 777-200, with a cargo payload of up to 20 metric tons per flight. Flights to Muscat will operate five times a week, while services to Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and Doha will operate on a daily basis.
