Manama, December 6, 2011
Oman Air has been awarded an ISO Quality Standard certificate for its supply chain management. The celebration took place at the Golden Tulip Hotel Seeb, in Muscat, attended by top officials from Oman Air and Bureau Veritas.
Bureau Veritas country chief executive for Dubai and Oman Shakeer Rasheed presented the certificate to Oman Air's chief of corporate affairs Philippe Georgiou.
The national carrier of the sultanate was awarded ISO 9001:2008 certification under UKAS accreditation, with certificate IND11.1299U, a statement from the airline company said.
ISO 9001:2008 is an internationally-recognised standard for quality management to ensure that organisations have proven processes in place to meet customer requirements.
It is granted independently and signifies the high quality of the winning organisation's work, the statement said.
'Oman Air is proud to announce that our supply chain management operation has gained ISO 9001:2008 certification,' the airline's chief officer management affairs Abdulaziz bin Saud Alraisi said.
