Oman boost for First Class

The First Class cabins on Oman Air’s three A330-300s have been renovated as part of what the airline calls its “journey to become the best” and despite a reduction in government support over the past three years.

Executive vice-president products and brand development Abdulaziz Al Raisi noted the airline had made “enormous investment” in new aircraft, new destinations and products and services, each with the aim of providing an enjoyable experience for passengers.

He added: “We have been able to achieve this with the generous support of the government of the Sultanate of Oman. However, that support has been reduced significantly and Oman Air is progressing towards becoming entirely self-supporting.”

However, he said, the company had opted not to make savings when it came to guest experience and was continuing to invest in passenger comfort and services.

Oman Air has been engaged in an ambitious fleet and network expansion programme since late 2014 which has seen the delivery of new Airbus A330-300, Boeing B737-800/-900 and Boeing B787-8 Dreamliner aircraft.

The period has also seen the opening of a host of new destinations including Manila, Jakarta, Dhaka, Goa, Singapore, Mashhad, Najaf and Guangzhou.
