Oman Air has celebrated its 20th anniversary. That means we are out of the teens and ready to take on the many challenges that lie ahead. For starters, Oman Air launched its first flight on the 15th of March 1993 and has since grown to become one of the world’s best international airlines. Looking back at Oman Air’s inaugural flight to Salalah, the first international flight to Dubai on a leased Boeing 727-300 that took off in July 1993 and the first flight to the Subcontinent (Trivandrum) took place in November of the same year, the time has just flown us by, literally. Now Oman Air operates its flights to 42 destinations out of which 39 are international with a total fleet strength of 30.
In recognition of the unparalleled quality of its onboard products, the carrier has also received countless awards, including World’s Best Business Class Airline Seat at the World Airline Awards for the last two years running. We would like to thank you all for your support and feedback that has helped us improve our services over the years and made us a force to reckon with. On this celebratory occasion we are committed to proudly carry the flag of our country on the aircraft to more destinations around the world.
We turned 20 on 15th Mar and to celebrate it and on 20th Mar, for one day only, Oman Air offered all its customers (flying return fares originating from Muscat) a fantastic 20% online only discount to all international destinations in all classes. And, owing to the success of the initial offer we have extended the same concept and now offer 20% discount on First and Business Class to selected international destinations.
Now, for those of you who are hard to please we imagine you saying is this enough? The party has just started for our fans and followers on social media. There are quite a few big surprises which are under wraps and will be announced in due time. Just keep your eyes and ears open and keep following Oman Air on facebook, twitter and G+. And of course tell your friends about it.
We think turning 20 is awesome and there is no one better than you, our customers, to celebrate it with. On that note we also vow to continue offering our customers a high-quality service experience balanced with traditional Omani hospitality.
