He will be joined by guests from the Travel & tourism trade, Media, Corporate partners and the aviation industry in general.

Wayne Pearce, Oman Air's recently-appointed Chief Executive Officer, looks forward to the celebration, saying: "It will be an honour to welcome His Excellency Mr Khalil Al Khonji to this event, which will celebrate our great new service between Muscat and Zurich, and we look forward to offering the warmest of Omani hospitality to everyone who attends.

"The new service links Oman's beautiful and timeless capital with what is one of the world's great financial centres and an ideal gateway to the Alps for both winter and summer sports enthusiasts.

"The route is already proving extremely popular for visitors from Oman and beyond, as it is for visitors from Switzerland to Oman, who now find it easier than ever to experience the unparalleled hospitality, rich culture and dramatic landscapes that are unique to the Sultanate."

The Muscat to Zurich service also offers Swiss travellers the opportunity to experience Oman Air's luxurious new fleet of Airbus A330 widebody aircraft, which feature the World's Best Business Class Seat (World Airline Awards 2011) and the world's first complete onboard connectivity service, which allows passengers to make phone calls, send SMSs, check email and surf the internet. With unbeatable space and comfort in every class, and extra-long, fully lie-flat seats in Business Class, each giving direct aisle access, Oman Air offers the perfect way to travel from Switzerland to Oman, as well as to onward destinations.

Wayne Pearce concludes: "Having attracted numerous awards over a short period of time, Oman Air's acclaimed products and services are perfect for Zurich and we look forward to joining our guests, friends and colleagues in celebrating the launch and subsequent success of this outstanding new route."
