Oman Air Celebrates Success at ITB Berlin
Date: 26 Mar 2013
Oman Air is celebrating its participation this year in an extraordinarily successful ITB Berlin.
The national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman welcomed an unprecedented number of visitors to its spectacular stand at the German travel fair, which is one of the largest events of its kind in the world.
In addition, it was named by organisers as Second Best Air Carrier for operating flights between Arab countries and Germany, in recognition of the quality and punctuality of its services between Muscat and the destinations of Frankfurt and Munich.
Oman Air’s presence at ITB was further boosted by a series of events at its stand, including the “Digital Warm-up: Oman Air’s Blogger’ Breakfast at the ITB Berlin 2013”, where high profile bloggers met with the airline’s management, and the launch of a major Facebook campaign focusing on the airline’s award-winning business class seat.
Oman Air’s Chief Executive Officer, Wayne Pearce, commented:
“ITB Berlin has been an outstanding success for Oman Air this year. We have created promising new links with a range of travel trade organisations, strengthened existing relationships and received a prestigious award for our services to Germany.
“I was also pleased to see Oman win three international awards, including the Go Asia, Go Arabia Group’s ‘Favourite Destination for German Speaking Tourists’
“As a result, we look forward to offering the warmest of Omani welcomes to many more customers from Germany and further afield, and to offering them the opportunity to discover Oman’s beauty and authentic Arabian culture.”
This year, ITB Berlin saw 110,000 trade representatives visit 10,086 exhibitors from 188 countries
Mohammed Mubarak Al Shikely, Oman Air’s General Manager Marketing, added:
“ITB Berlin has been an excellent opportunity to raise awareness of Oman Air’s world-beating products and to remind the travel trade and the media of our superb quality, choice and value. We would like to thank the organisers and the German people for their hospitality and we look forward to participating next year.”
