Dubai, January 19, 2014
Oman Air and Oman’s Ministry of Tourism have announced the launch of ‘Oman Short Breaks’, a joint project offering convenient and competitively-priced holiday packages for GCC travellers.
The packages are available for travel during the forthcoming spring and summer seasons and include return flights with Oman Air together with accommodation in any of the many deluxe hotels in Muscat and Salalah, said a statement.
‘Oman Short Breaks’ was launched at an event held at the Fairmont Hotel, Dubai, where Ghasi Humaid Al Hashmi, deputy director general of tourism promotion, Oman Ministry of Tourism, said: “The ministry, in association with the several key players in the travel and tourism sector, is aggressively promoting the Sultanate as an attractive global tourist destination. Through our strategic partnership with Oman Air, we have been able to create tremendous awareness about tourism options in Oman, which has generated fruitful results. Continuing with our past success, we have once again collaborated with Oman Air to launch the ‘Oman Short Breaks’ campaign for the upcoming tourist season.”
Masoud Al-Balushi, Oman Air’s country manager – UAE, said: “Oman is an ideal holiday destination for tourists from both the Middle East region and further afield, and Oman Air is the perfect way to travel there. We are therefore delighted to join with the Ministry of Tourism to launch ‘Oman Short Breaks’, which will, over the space of just a few days, provide holiday-makers with a wonderful opportunity to explore Oman’s many popular tourist destinations and enjoy a memorable Omani experience.”
Oman Air currently operates seven daily flights from Dubai to Muscat, four daily flights from Dubai to Salalah, and three daily flights from Abu Dhabi to Muscat. – TradeArabia News Service
