Oman Air, the flagship company of the Sultanate of Oman’s Civil Aviation sector, commenced operations in 1993. Starting off as a regional airline, Oman’s national carrier has witnessed rapid growth in the years after it was established. Today, it is recognised as a major global airline connecting cities across the world to Oman. Oman Air has played a major role in making Muscat a leading traffic hub in the Middle East and supporting commercial, industrial and tourism activities.
The Oman Air fleet consists of modern, fuel-efficient aircraft with attractive, award-winning interiors. Ultra-modern in-flight service equipment is deployed on-board to improve safety and overall performance. Investment in new technology, planning and product innovation has propelled Oman Air to the forefront of the aviation industry.
Oman Air is certified as a 5-Star Airline for the quality of its onboard product and staff service. The rating evaluates seats, amenities, food & beverages, IFE, cleanliness and more. The service rating is for both cabin staff and ground staff.
This year, the national carrier was once again voted the Middle East’s Leading Airline 2020: Business Class and Middle East’s Leading Airline 2020: Economy Class and the best airline for service to the Middle East and for providing the world's best First Class experience.
Most recently, Oman Air earned a Five Star rating in the Major Airline category from the Airline Passenger Experience Association (APEX), a globally recognised organization. This award was given to less than 10 per cent of the world’s airlines.
