Oman Air flights normal despite staff strike
Muscat, June 1, 2013
Oman Air, the Sultanate's national carrier, said the operation was smooth at Muscat International Airport and the airline managed a 81 per cent on-time performance today despite a flash strike by a section of its staff.
In a statement issued on Saturday, Oman Air said an unofficial strike had been called by a small number of staff at Muscat International Airport without giving any advance notice as required by the Omani labor law.
The national regulations governing industrial action appear not to have been observed, it stated.
In order to run its operations smoothly, Oman Air has deployed additional staff to minimize the impact on customers. The national carrier said it had "managed a 81 per cent on time performance of all their flights between 0001 and 1800 today."
"Oman Air’s commitment to its customers is absolute and the management in close coordination with the Authorities and all service providers will ensure that the Airport continues with normal operations of all flights," the statement added.-TradeArabia News Service
