Middle Eastern carrier Oman Air is to open a new Saudi Arabian service, expanding its network to the city of Dammam next month.

The airline is to begin flights to Dammam from its Muscat base on 1 September.

Oman Air already operates to the Saudi cities of Riyadh and Jeddah. Chief executive Peter Hill says the new route "further strengthens" the airline's Gulf network.

Services will operate daily with Boeing 737-700 aircraft configured in two classes.
