Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman will be commemorating its flights to the Sri Lankan capital of Colombo on February 26th. The flights to this destination were launched in November last year with four weekly frequencies between Muscat, capital of the Sultanate of Oman and Colombo.

HE Eng Sultan Hamdoon Al Harthi, the President of the Muscat Municipality, will be the chief guest for the launch celebrations that will have a high-level delegation from Oman Air, led by Oman Air’s Chief Executive Officer Peter Hill, along with other Senior Management team who will be in Colombo for this purpose.

To commemorate its new service, Oman Air has arranged for a press conference that will be attended by the Sri Lankan press corps on the 25th and a gala dinner on the 26th at Hotel Cinnamon Grand for the top officials of Sri Lanka and the travel trade members. This event will give the invitees an opportunity to interact with Oman Air’s top management.

Peter Hill Oman Air’s Chief Executive Officer says:

“Sri Lanka has proven to be a welcomed addition to the ever expanding Oman Air network. We have reasons to believe that our customers are thrilled with this destination, as Sri Lanka has everything a tourist wants to explore, experience and see. Together with the new A 330 aircraft that are deployed into this segment and the spectacular natural beauty that the place is known for, our valued customers can surely have an enjoyable holiday. Our service to this destination is also viewed as a boon by the many Sri Lankan expatriates working in Oman who have started using our services. Sri Lanka is a place that can be visited the whole year round and is rated as one of the top tourist destination of the world. With Oman Air’s exemplary services and products, I am sure this will open up a whole new experience for the discerning travelers, especially in Oman.”

Oman Air will be offering the full connectivity suite (Mobile OnAir and Internet OnAir) on its commercial widebody aircraft when it starts to unroll full mobile phone and wi-fi connectivity across its brand new Airbus A330 fleet, towards the beginning of March 2010. The move will give passengers in First, Business and Economy classes the opportunity to make and receive mobile phone calls, SMS, use email and the internet and keep up-to-date with social networking media, such as Facebook and Twitter.
