Oman Air starts new Audi limousine service
Muscat, June 19, 2011
National carrier Oman Air has joined hands with luxury carmaker Audi to provide a fleet of chauffeur-driven A8s that will whisk passengers from the new First Class airport lounge to the aircraft.
Announcing the launch, Abdulrazaq Al Raisi, Oman Air’s chief commercial officer, said: "From today, Our first class passengers will benefit from even greater luxury at Muscat International Airport. The addition of our lounge-to-aircraft limousine service will provide even greater comfort and convenience."
“The new service will utilise Audi’s flagship A8 limousines, whose refinement and elegance perfectly complement Oman Air’s First Class experience, both at our new, state-of-the-art lounge at Muscat and onboard our outstanding Airbus A330-300 aircraft."
"We are confident that our First Class passengers will welcome this superb addition to Oman Air’s hospitality," he added.
Oman Air unveiled brand new First Class and Business Class lounges at Muscat International Airport earlier this year.
First Class customers can now relax and enjoy fine dining, complimentary massages and the very best of Omani hospitality, before being driven to their waiting aircraft.
Audi’s A8 limousines were chosen as they provide an unbeatable combination of rear passenger space, style, luxury and technological innovation, said Al Raisi.
"Built using the finest materials - including woodwork sanded by hand - the Audi A8 is a fast, powerful and elegant four-door limousine which has received great acclaim for its performance and comfort," he added.
James Oliver, Audi’s general manager, Oman, said this was a significant milestone in its continued strengthening of the Audi Brand in Oman.
"The Audi A8 is the epitome of a first class experience where it blends modern technology, with timeless quality and craftsmanship," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
