Date: 28 September 2009
Headed by the Airline’s CEO Peter Hill, Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman displayed its unique style of hospitality at Top Resa, the leading French travel trade exhibition.
The four-day event that took place in Paris between September 22 - 25 featured a dedicated Oman Air stand manned by sales and marketing staff.
Oman Air’s Chief Executive Officer Peter Hill explained that Top Resa, the leading international high profile tourism show in France, would help raise the airline’s awareness in the French market. Alongside Ministry of Tourism he stated, we are promoting Oman as one of Arabia's most attractive yet undiscovered countries, which will become more accessible through our new service to Paris. As expected, a steady stream of visitors were welcomed at the Oman Air stand, over what was an extremely busy and fruitful four days,” Hill said.
Effective October 9, Oman Air will commence four weekly non-stop frequencies between Muscat, the airline’s operational hub in the Sultanate of Oman, and the French capital, Paris. The airline will operate a Business and Economy class state-of-the-art Airbus A330 on the route.
Promoting the new service, Oman Air offered a special attractive Round-Trip Introductory Fare, giving customers the chance to sample the airline’s own unique brand of hospitality as well as experience the very special delights that a visit to the Sultanate of Oman affords.
In conclusion, Peter Hill pointed out that Oman Air is growing at a phenomenal pace, opening up new routes, and adding new aircraft to the airline's rapidly expanding fleet. “We are spreading our wings across the world, and France is the latest addition to our network” he said.
Oman Air has recently taken delivery of its first A330-200, becoming the newest operator of the aircraft. Powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines, the A330 will be configured in an ultra high comfort two-class layout with 20 Business and 196 Economy seats.
