The latest issue of ‘Wings of Oman’, the in-flight magazine of Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman has just been released. The current issue of this monthly bi-lingual magazine presents a wide array of interestingly crafted features, information packed travelogues, helpful articles and myriad other pieces of information, all meticulously put together as a complete package, to appeal to its broad spectrum of readers - inside the aircraft, as well as outside.
The cover story takes readers on a memorable trip to the Dhofar Governorate, just before the eagerly-looked-forward-to ‘Khareef’ season kicks in. For many visitors who come from within the region, Dhofar and Salalah are synonymous with the Khareef. This article successfully breaks that myth and presents so many more interesting and amazing things to see, experience and enjoy while in Dhofar - Khareef notwithstanding. In fact, the cover story convincingly establishes the fact that Dhofar is indeed a year-round destination and not just a summer must-visit spot, when tourists flock from all over the Middle East to escape from the blistering heat!
The ‘International Destination’ of this month is the UAE, with special focus on Abu Dhabi and Dubai. This travelogue begins from tracing the deep roots of the Emirates way back from the Bronze Age, and follows its astounding and rapid rise to become one of the most prosperous and talked about countries in recent living memory. Black Gold proved to be the elixir for this desert nation. And it was the discovery of black gold that transformed the face and the fortunes of the Emirates for the better. A truly must read story which succinctly encapsulates the ethos and authentic flavor of the Emirates.
Besides these main sections, ‘Wings of Oman’ also provides ample high quality reading material exclusively customised to hold the interests of the jet set business travelers, fashionistas, tourists and visitors coming to Oman be it children, youth or the senior citizens. This informative packed and attractively packaged in-flight magazine is produced and presented every month in both Arabic and English, by National Publishing and Advertising (NPA), in close consultation and coordination with the Corporate Communications and Media Department of Oman Air.
Month after month, this world-class publication coming from the Sultanate of Oman is eagerly looked forward to by Oman Air’s eclectic mix of business and leisure travellers, as well as hotels, tourist offices and other corporate and government offices operating within Oman and in Oman Air’s 43 worldwide destinations.
