Oman Air receives award for Best Business Class Seat
The national air carrier of the Sultanate of Oman has recently received the coveted award of Best Business Class Seat after undergoing thorough renovations across their fleet. Offering state-of-the-art facilites, Oman Air highly deserved this recognition.
At the World Airline Awards held last Monday 22nd June, Oman Air received praised as the winner of the Best Business Class Seat Award. Having earned a prestigious reputation as Oman’s national air carrier, Oman Air was presented with the award during the ceremony, which was attended by over 50 airlines during the Paris Air Show.
Excelling at providing top notch service to passengers en-route to Oman holidays, Oman Air’s Chief Executive Officer, Peter Hill, said: “We are delighted that Oman Air has been named as winner in the Best Business Class Seat category of the World Airline Awards, which are the most prestigious accolades available within the global airline industry.
“Our Business Class seat is regularly mistaken for First Class. It offers unparalleled levels of space, comfort and amenity and has proved extremely popular with our customers.
”Competition at the World Airline Awards for the title of ‘Best Business Class Seat’ is fierce and it is enormously satisfying to know that air travellers regard our seat as the best in the world.”
The World Airline Awards, which are based on the views of nearly 20 million air passengers, were surveyed by Skytrax over the last year, are also known as the Passenger Choice Awards and set the benchmark for excellence within the airline industry. The surveys that serve to set the industry standards each year are carried out over 10 months by renowned independent airline experts Skytrax. In the surveys the views of 18.8 million air travellers are reflected. Participant travellers from over 100 different countries are surveyed and responses cover over 200 airlines of all sizes. Standards across nearly 40 different items of airline front-line product and service are measured and analysed, from check-in to boarding, onboard seat comfort and cabin cleanliness to food and beverages, and from IFE to staff service.
Oman Air’s award-winning Business Class seat offers comfort and luxury within an 82-inch pitch, direct aisle access for every passenger and converts to a 77-inch long fully lie-flat bed. A 17-inch inflight entertainment screen gives access to a huge range of movies, music and games, whilst a universal power point, USB port and iPod sockets enable passengers to personalise their entertainment options by plugging in their laptops, smartphones, tablet PCs or games consoles. Retractable privacy screens, buddy seats and ample storage add to the experience, putting the passenger fully in control of their personal space.
Oman Air’s recent success at the World Airline Awards follows a period of fast change and rapid growth for the airline, during which it has emerged as a niche luxury carrier operating in the Middle East, taking millions of passengers to luxury holidays in Oman.
After having recently introduced a fleet of new Airbus A330 aircraft with outstanding interiors, as well as state-of-the-art Embraer 175 short haul jets, Oman Air has expanded its network to include more than 40 exciting destinations. In addition to offering audio and video on demand and live satellite TV onboard its A330s, Oman Air pioneered inflight mobile phone and Wi-Fi connectivity and has received acclaim for its inflight dining, refreshments and amenity kits.
Stepping up their offerings for luxury journeys to Oman holidays, the airline had also recently unveiled ultra-luxurious First Class and Business Class lounges at Muscat International Airport (MCT), the airline has just launched a new First Class lounge-to-aircraft limousine service, with a chauffeur-driven fleet of Audi A8s.
“Oman Air offers unbeatable luxury, hospitality and value for all our customers. We are continuously seeking new ways to surprise and delight passengers and we look forward to announcing fantastic new products and services which will offer even greater ‘passenger choice’.” Peter Hill added on a final note.
