Oman Air, the national airline of the Sultanate of Oman, announced its successful participation at the ITB Berlin which concluded recently. Guests from the travel trade, media and general public, visited the Oman Air stall at the ITB.
Showcasing its multi-award-winning products and services, Oman Air hosted a range of events at its spectacular stand and ensured that visitors receive a taste of the hospitality for which Oman is renowned.
Oman Air’s Chief Executive Officer, Wayne Pearce, greeted guests from Germany’s most prestigious media titles to savour Omani coffee and traditional snacks. Mr Pearce was accompanied by members of the airline’s senior management, including Chief Commercial Officer Abdulrazaq Al Raisi, General Manager Marketing Mohammed Al Shikely, General Manager Worldwide Sales Paul Starrs, and Country Manager Germany, Nicky Samarasinghe.
Wayne Pearce said:
“Oman Air’s participation at ITB Berlin continues the airline’s long association with this most prestigious of travel events and celebrates the success of its services between the Omani capital of Muscat and Germany’s two largest airports, Frankfurt and Munich. Since the launch of the Frankfurt and Munich services, Oman Air has not only expanded its network and fleet of aircraft, but has also launched a range of new products and services, each designed to enhance the passenger experience. These include unveiling new premium lounges at Muscat and Bangkok.”
During the course of the ITB, a surprise event was held to demonstrate the remarkable size and comfort of Oman Air’s Business Class seat. Some of Germany’s tallest people were invited to try the seat, which was recently named Best Business Class Seat in the World at the World Airline Awards, for size and each declared it outstanding.
On the third and final day of the show, the winners of last year’s DSDS (The German Idol show), a national search for Germany’s next superstars which is broadcast on RTL, signed autographs at Oman Air’s stand. They also highlighted the unparalleled standards that Oman Air offers in First Business and Economy Classes, and drew visitors’ attention to the awe-inspiring beauty and superb accommodation that travellers to the Sultanate of Oman can enjoy.
It was also disclosed at the ITB that more tourists came to Oman from Germany in 2011 than from any other country, a result of the many road shows arranged by the Ministry of Tourism Oman and the promotional campaigns undertaken by Oman Air.
