Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman, has been revealed as the winner of the Middle East’s Leading Airline Economy Class category at the prestigious World Travel Awards. 

The awards, which recognise the commitment to excellence the airline has demonstrated over the last 12 months, are voted for by travel and tourism professionals worldwide. 

Oman Air chief executive Wayne Pearce attended the spectacular ceremony at the Le Royal Meridien Beach Resort & Spa in Dubai, where he was joined by many international leaders of the aviation industry, international media and a host of other VIPs.

Pearce said: “Oman Air is honoured to have won the award in this highly competitive category, and against such worthy competitors on the eve of the launch of ATM 2013.

“When Oman Air unveiled its new Airbus A330 Economy, Business and First Class cabins in 2009, we ensured that each cabin, including economy, offered fantastic comfort, space and in-flight entertainment, with audio video on demand and live satellite TV. 

“These levels of comfort and amenity were mirrored aboard our fleet of Embraer E175 regional jets and are perfectly complemented by our medium-haul Boeing B737 economy class service.

“With delicious complimentary food and drinks served on board, we can ensure that all our economy class customers can simply sit back and enjoy their journey with Oman Air and make the most of the tremendous facilities available on board.”
