Oman Air, the Official Carrier and Gold Sponsor of the month-long Muscat Festival 2013 is successfully continuing its long relationship with this popular celebration of all aspects of Omani culture. The Festival, which takes place between January 30th and February 28th, focuses this year on education, fun and entertainment for youth, and is expected to attract up to two million visitors.
Oman Air has partnered with Muscat Municipality and the Oman Ministry of Tourism in a continued bid to promote Oman as a unique tourism destination. Held primarily in two Muscat parks, Amerat Public Park and Naseem Gardens, beside the Sultan Qaboos Sports Complex, the Festival features a wide range of attractions showcasing Oman's rich culture and timeless tradition. With music, food, multimedia, fun and fireworks to be enjoyed, the event is open daily between 4pm and 11pm, and attracts millions of spectators from home and abroad. In addition, an International Trade Fair and Entertainment City ensures the Festival continues to wow its visitors.
Oman Air's Chief Executive Officer, Wayne Pearce, said:
"We are delighted to maintain our position as Official Carrier for the Muscat Festival. The Festival is now in its 13th year and we anticipate that it will attract more visitors than ever before, as awareness of Oman's rich heritage and traditions continues to grow internationally.
"We look forward to welcoming visitors to the Oman Air stand in Naseem Park, where we are demonstrating the airline's award-winning products and services. All visitors are invited to enter our raffles, held at weekends throughout the event, which offers chances to win many exciting prizes.
"It is a pleasure to be associated with such a high-profile and popular event, and will continue our drive to make Oman a must-see destination for visitors from around the world."
It is worth mentioning that the national Airline of Oman, Oman Air plays a vital part in both bringing visitors to Muscat to enjoy the Festival and promoting the country's many attractions to a worldwide audience.
