Karachi: Oman Air, the national airline of the Sultanate of Oman, has won two categories of the World Travel Awards, which were announced in Dubai. At a dazzling ceremony which was held at the JW Marriot Marquis Dubai, Oman Air was named ‘Middle East’s Leading Airline – Business Class’ and ‘Middle East’s Leading Airline – Economy Class’, beating some of the region’s largest and best-known carriers in each category.
Acting Chief Executive Officer of Oman Air, Salim Al Kindy, commented:“Winning two categories of the prestigious World Travel Awards is a remarkable achievement for Oman Air, especially when we were pitted against some of the world’s largest airlines.
