Oman Air...committed to supporting educational achievement

Oman Air announces discounts for Omani students

MUSCAT, June 21, 2016

National carrier Oman Air has rolled out a new promotion for Omani high school graduates offering them a 25 per cent discount on return flights to enable them to continue their studies overseas.

The discounts will apply to all booking classes, but will not include promotional fares, the airline said in a statement.

To be eligible for the discounts, students must be Omani citizens, aged between 18 and 25 years old at time of travel, who have just graduated from high school, or an equivalent educational institution in the sultanate. In addition, they need to have been accepted for full-time study on an accredited course at an overseas college or university.

The discounts apply to international destinations that lie within Oman Air’s expanding international network and are where students are enrolled. Students will be entitled to an enhanced baggage allowance of 10kg above the weight normally permitted and one flight rescheduling can be made at no extra charge. Discounted tickets are available only through the airline’s local offices and outlets in Oman and can be booked upon presentation of a photocopy of a valid student ID card, or a formal letter issued by the head of faculty or the Ministry of Higher Education.

Announcing the offer, Oman Air’s country manager for Oman, Jamal Bin Saif Al Azki, said: “Oman Air is delighted to offer our nation’s new high school graduates the opportunity to save money when they travel overseas to continue their studies. As the national carrier of Oman, we are proud to be making this investment in the country’s future and to be providing extra motivation to achieve their full potential.

“We look forward to welcoming many more students aboard our award-winning aircraft as they fly to seats of learning throughout Asia, the Middle East and Europe.”

Oman Air’s 25 per cent discount for students is available from now until December 31, 2016. Terms and conditions apply. - TradeArabia News Service
