Oman Air Announces New Low Fares for Nationals Travelling to Khasab
Date: 9 Jan 2012
Oman Air has announced a superb new offer on flights from Muscat to Khasab, the Governorate of Musandam's regional centre.
From 7th January, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman will be offering return flights with one month validity, at the special rate of just Omani Rial 31. The reduced-fare is being offered as part of Oman Air’s commitment to meeting the needs of local communities, and it will only be available for Omani Nationals.
An official from Oman Air’s Commercial Unit, commented: “We are delighted that through this superb offer, we are enabling more people to visit beautiful Musandam and to experience its unique history, culture and hospitality. Of course, visitors will also have the opportunity to make the most of Oman Air's internationally-acclaimed, award-winning products and services, of which we are very proud.
“We are also pleased that this promotion allows us to continue our promotion of year-round domestic tourism, which helps to create economic activity for local communities, and reduce the seasonal variations which arise through international tourism.”
And in a move designed to reduce the number of unused bookings, minimize last-minute ticket changes and increase passenger choice, Oman Air has announced that it will be charging an OR10 fee for flight changes and refunds.
He added: “Our aim is to encourage people to use their booked flights. Unused bookings block seats and reduce the range of choices available to other passengers. This has the potential to impact on choice and convenience for other customers and the new OR10 fee will help us to protect the interests of all of our passengers.”
