Honor Bestowed By Readers Of Business Destinations Magazine
Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman, has been awarded ‘Best Business Class Airline, Middle East’ in the prestigious Business Destinations Travel Awards 2012. The Business Destinations Travel Awards are voted for by readers of Business Destinations magazine, which is published in the UK every other month.
The Oman Daily Observer reports that Wayne Pearce, Oman Air’s CEO, says: “We are delighted that Oman Air has been named as ‘Best Business Class Airline, Middle East’ in the Business Destinations Travel Awards. This follows on from last year’s win by Oman Air of the ‘Best Luxury Airline, Middle East’ category, so we are extremely pleased that the quality of our premium service has been recognized for the second year running.
He added “My thanks go to Business Destinations’ readers and to all our staff, throughout Oman Air, who have played a vital role in transforming the airline into the luxury carrier it is today, and ensuring the success of our outstanding and internationally-recognized business class offering.”
The award follows the introduction over the last two years of a brand new fleet of Airbus A330s to the airline’s long haul routes, the launch from March 2011 of Embraer 175s on short haul routes, the pioneering of onboard mobile phone and wi-fi connectivity and the unveiling of superb new business class and first class lounges at Muscat International Airport. A state-of-the-art new Business Class lounge was also opened in Bangkok.
