Oman Air also achieved top-ten places in the ‘Best First Class Airline Catering’ and ‘Best Economy Class Airline Seats’ categories of the awards.
Abdulrahaman Al-Busaidy, Chief Operating Officer at Oman Air, commented: “We are delighted that Oman Air has been recognised by the World Airline Awards for our outstanding staff service. To have won this award two years in a row, and to have achieved high rankings in a further six categories of the awards this year, is testament to the extraordinarily high standards of hospitality that our staff offer to all our customers.”
The World Airline Awards provide the most prestigious accolades available within the air travel industry. Not only are they entirely independent of any commercial pressures, but they are voted for by the industry’s most exacting and demanding judges – air travellers. The World Airline Awards therefore offer an unparalleled benchmark for the quality of the products and services that airlines offer and it is an honour to receive this acclaim.
Notably, the carrier was recently honoured at the World Travel Awards, where it was awarded 'Best Business Class Airline - Middle East 2015' and 'Best Economy Class Airline - Middle East 2015'. In addition, Oman Air was named 'World's Leading Economy Class Airline 2014'. Oman Air has also claimed 'Best Luxury Airline, Middle East' at this year's Business Destinations Awards, following success in the same category in 2011, 2012 and 2013.
