He also added that “Oman Air is playing a major role in making Muscat a major traffic hub in the Middle East. This new service will consequently result in boosting the Economical and Tourism industries in both our brotherly nations Oman and Jordan. Oman has tremendous tourism potential and the National carrier is pleased to now expand its marketing and sales effort to more destinations in the Middle East to support not only the citizens of the two brotherly countries, but the growing number of expatriate travelers seeking new and exotic holiday destinations. This is only a stride towards a sequence of upgrading our operations with the object of an increase in the near future".

Mr. Al Lawati concludes that “since its inception in 1993 until now, Oman Air has witnessed only success. The airline, which began operating only one aircraft for its flights to Salalah, has now grown to an international airline ready to face all challenges. The airline strongly believes that the fame and reputation that it has achieved in the past few years is the result of dedication, hard work and perseverance. It aims to improve services and technology and always provide customer satisfaction”.
