Oman Air shows off new business class
Muscat, June 20, 2009
Oman Air has kicked off its largest ever road show, showcasing its new business class seats in Oman’s major towns and cities.
The road show, which was launched yesterday (June 19) at Qurum City Centre, will run for four weeks.
The show will allow customers to experience the airline’s revolutionary new business class seat for themselves, as well as find out information about the new product. The road show will be held in Muscat City Centre from June 21 to 22, before going to Sohar from June 23 to 25, Sur from June 27 to 29, Nizwa on June 30 and then making a journey south to Salalah where it will be positioned at the Municipal Entertaining Centre from July 5 to 20.
The business class seat was unveiled earlier this year during the ITB Berlin 2009 by the airline’s CEO, Peter Hill.
Oman Air has just 20 seats fitted in its business class cabin, featuring a 4 abreast 1-2-1 layout which together with 17” video monitors gives an ambience and spaciousness that exceeds most of our competitor’s first class offerings.
To deliver the last word in in-flight entertainment, Oman Air has selected the Thales i5000, which combined with the Rockwell Collins Tailwind 560 platform will provide live TV, featuring news, sports and movie options to every seat on the aircraft.
Similarly, every passenger will have access to e-mail, Internet and mobile phone/laptop connectivity.
Oman Air’s new business class seat will be installed in its fleet of their new Airbus A330-200/300 aircraft the first of which is being delivered in September.
The Muscat-based airline is investing heavily in its product and services, to match the growing reputation that Oman is receiving as an up market leisure destination as well as an increasingly important business centre. – TradeArabia News Service
