Oman Air backs Salalah tourism fest
Muscat, September 16, 2013
Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate, announced its successful participation at the recently concluded Salalah Tourism Festival, a premier event in the region.
Oman Air held many events and weekly raffles at its site at the festival to add more colour and gaiety to the festive atmosphere, hence offered visitors the opportunity to take part in a range of activities and to win prizes – which for the lucky winners meant taking home return tickets between two of Oman Air’s 43 destinations.
“This event has been a wonderful opportunity for us to join up with our customers and the general public to celebrate the exceptional natural phenomena called 'khareef', also to participate fully in The Salalah Tourism Festival of which Oman Air is proud to be the official carrier and major sponsor,” said Usama Bin Karim Al Haremi, head, corporate communications and media, Oman Air.
“Apart from entertaining activities, the festival attractions included exhibitions, child and traditional villages and theatre shows. Most of the activities were staged in the municipality’s entertainment centre.
“As well as being a lot of fun, the event has been a great opportunity for us to engage with locals, and to show our appreciation for all their support and encouragement,” added Al Haremi.
The Salalah Tourism Festival is held every year to coincide with the Khareef, the monsoon season, which is unique to this southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula, bringing cool relief from the heat of the Gulf summer. – TradeArabia News Service
