World Travel Awards success for Oman Air

Oman Air was named the “Middle East’s Leading Airline: Business Class” and “Middle East’s Leading Airline: Economy Class” at the recent 2019 World Travel Awards Middle East ceremony held at Warner Bros World in Abu Dhabi.

The airline’s in-flight magazine “Wings of Oman” won the “Middle East’s Leading Inflight Magazine” award. 

Oman Air’s business class has been awarded the title every year since 2016 (as well as in 2014), and its economy class has won the title for six years running — from 2014 through to 2019. 

Abdul Aziz bin Saud Al-Raisi, CEO of Oman Air, said: “Winning three categories of the prestigious World Travel Awards is a remarkable achievement for Oman Air, especially when we were pitted against some of the world’s largest airlines. These wins are very important to Oman Air as they indicate that our staff are continually raising the bar in service excellence to provide a safe and wonderfully enjoyable flying experience for our guests.”

He added: “Although the category of “Leading Inflight Magazine” was previously a part of the World Travel Awards, this is the first time the same category was included in the WTA Middle East. And we are delighted to be the first winner in this new category.”

The principles, values and golden rules provide the framework that govern the Group’s ecosystem and culture.”
Hayfa added that receiving this award will only increase the Group’s motivation to further promote this ecosystem and continue efforts toward becoming a better place to work.
