MUSCAT: Earlier this morning, Oman Air flight WY 154 from Zurich to Muscat experienced a cabin pressurisation fault while in flight, the airline said in a statement.

This required the aircraft to take a precautionary landing at Diyarbakir, Turkey, which was completed safely.

Guests onboard this flight are currently being accommodated in local hotels in the Diyarbakir area, it said.

Oman Air will be dispatching a replacement aircraft to Diyarbakir, Turkey departing Muscat later this evening at approximately 20:00 hours (local time) to repatriate the delayed guests back to Muscat.

"Our airport team are currently working with local authorities in Diyarbakir, Turkey to look after our guests and ensure a swift and safe return of our passengers to their destination," the airline said.

Oman Air regrets any inconvenience this may have caused. The safety and welfare of our guests and crew is our top priority, it said. -
