The Oman Air stand at the Municipal Entertaining Centre, the main venue of the Salalah Tourism Festival has proved to be a major draw card, attracting visitors who are eager to learn about Oman Air's new destinations, products, and services.
Hamad Al Harthy, District Sales Manager Salalah, said:
"The event is allowing us to effectively raise awareness of our promotions, offerings and additional new destinations. We are effectively making use of the festival to expose our growth, destination expansion, and unique products. Oman Air is gaining reputation worldwide as a rapidly growing national airline with its innovative products and services, and is also applauded for its achievements in playing a key role in the evolution of the tourism industry. The country is being put firmly on the global map and we are moving in a positive direction towards greater things to come"
Maitha Al Mahrouqi, country manager, Oman, said:
"The Salalah Tourism Festival makes a visit a must, in order to beat the hot summer currently being experienced in other parts of the Gulf and Middle East. Oman Air has always been working tirelessly with the Oman Ministry of Tourism to highlight the wonderful weather in Salalah during the Khareef. I am pleased to say that the increased number of visitors is a clear recognition that our efforts have been duly rewarded. We have a major role to carry out in supporting the local and the national tourism, and we believe that sponsoring such festivals is a corporate commitment towards the nation. Oman Air's long-term plan is being drawn up to support Oman's tourism industry in particular and our nation's economic growth in general".
Oman Air continues to organize a variety of activities at the venue aimed at attracting families and children. There is a weekly raffle whereby winners are awarded air tickets to fly to any of Oman Air's 41 exciting destinations. On the occasion of the Accession Day on July 23rd, a special event has been arranged with many giveaways and spot prizes to be won. Another special attraction would be the performance of traditional bands by various groups. The songs and dances ritual meted by these groups have been widely acclaimed for their unique appeal.
The Oman Air spot is strategically located near the main entrance- gate No 1 where all major sponsors are positioned. This allows visitors easy access to obtain the latest information including special holiday package offers, information on flight schedules and airfare information. Representatives from Oman Air are available to answer visitors' questions about the airline's products and services.
