Oman Air strengthens team in UK

Oman Air has announced two new appointments to its UK team.

Nick Beauchamp has been appointed as the new sales executive and his role will contribute towards growing Oman Air’s UK sales revenue and growing its portfolio of clients. 

He will be promoting Oman Air’s brand, products and services through primary distribution channels and developing and account managing commercial agreements with a portfolio of top national accounts and global agencies.

Nick joins Oman Air from Icelandair where he worked for nearly two years as account manager UK & Ireland.

He has more than ten years’ experience in tour operator and airline industries working in fare and business analysis before moving to the commercial side.


Beauchamp has worked at First Choice Holidays, TUI, as well as Air New Zealand.

At the same time, Kamani Hewagama joins as office coordinator and succeeds Lorraine Burns, who recently retired.

Kamani has a wealth of experience spanning over 20 years in the airline industry. 

She has previously worked at Sri Lankan Airlines and Emirates in roles as sales coordination supervisor, senior ticket desk agent and team leader as well as senior lounge agent.

Kelpesh Patel, interim country manager, UK & Ireland, Oman Air, said: “We are delighted to announce these new appointments, which will enable us to strengthen our relationships with agents and provide them with greater support.

“Nick and Kamani both have extensive experience within the aviation industry and we look forward to working with them on building the business at Oman Air.”

Oman Air continues to go from strength to strength with its strategic expansion plans providing a streamlined global network linking with routes worldwide.

Also today, Oman Air has taken delivery of the third of 30 Boeing 737 Max 8s it has on order.

The 737 MAX family has been designed to offer customers exceptional performance, flexibility and efficiency, with lower per-seat costs and an extended range that will open up new destinations in the single-aisle market.

Oman Air expects to receive a total of five 737 MAX by September 2018.

Configured with 162 seats in a two-class configuration: 12 in business and 150 in economy with significant enhancements across both cabins, the MAX aircraft is a testament to Oman Air commitment to continually upgrade its product offering to improve its customer satisfaction and enhance the overall guest experience.

With the addition of the new MAX, Oman Air’s fleet currently consists of seven Boeing 787 Dreamliners, six Airbus 330-300s, four Airbus 330-200s, five Boeing 737-900s, 21 Boeing 737-800s, three Boeing 737 MAXs and four Embraer 175s.
