Officials in Bangladesh have named Oman Air as the Best Airline Operating to and from Chittagong. The prestigious award was made on the United Nations International Migration Day, by the Bureau of Manpower, Employment and Training Center, part of Bangladesh's Ministry of Expatriates' Welfare and Overseas Employment.
The award was presented at Chittagong's Shah Amanat International Airport to Oman Air's Airport Services Supervisor at Chittagong, Mohammed Nur-E-Alam, by the Honorable Commissioner, Chittagong Division. The ceremony was also attended by the Deputy Director of the Bureau of Manpower, Employment and Training Center, Chittagong, and the Deputy Commissioner of Police, Chittagong Division.
Oman Air is the first-ever airline to receive such acclaim. The award recognises the high standards of on-time performance (OTP), passenger handling performance and movement of passengers according to legal requirements that Oman Air achieves on its daily flights between Chittagong and the Omani capital of Muscat.
Oman Air's General Manager Airport Services, Saleem Amanulla, commented:
"On behalf of Oman Air, I would like to say how pleased and honoured we are to receive this award.
"It is particularly satisfying to receive this acclaim at a time when Oman Air has just launched its ambitious growth strategy. This will see us fly more customers to more destinations, aboard more aircraft, than ever before. As a result many thousands more people will have the opportunity to experience Oman Air's exceptional comfort, service and convenience.
"As some of our longest-standing international services, Oman Air's flights between Chittagong and Muscat lie at the heart of our growing network and I would like to express my gratitude to all our staff and partners at Chittagong and throughout Bangladesh, for their superb support.
"My heartfelt thanks also go to the airport authorities at Chittagong, to the police and to the Bureau of Manpower, Employment and Training Center."

Return flights from Muscat to Chittagong start from 181.5 OMR per person, including all taxes and charges. All bookings are subject to availability.
