Oman Air serious with business
IT’S four abreast seating on the A330 from Oman Air, which launched at the ITB Berlin 2009 its brand new business class seat to be installed in its fleet of Airbus A330-200/300 aircraft to be delivered later this year.
Under the auspices of HE Mohammed Bin Hamood Al Tobi, under secretary Ministry of Tourism Oman and in the presence of HE Sheikh Khalifa Al Harthy, Sultanate of Oman's Ambassador to The Federal Republic Of Germany and Peter Hill the airline’s CEO, the launch took place at the Oman Air stand.
“Today is a landmark in Oman Air’s relatively short history and we are proud to showcase the state of the art on board products that will be fitted in all of our new wide body Airbus fleet, being introduced into service in September,” said Hill.
“In conjunction with our seat manufacturer SOGERMA, we surveyed the travel experiences of our customers, seeking their views and preferences on seating and cabin facilities. I believe that our new business class seat perfectly exemplifies the combination of comfort, space, design and technology”.
The Muscat based airline is investing heavily in its product and services, to match the growing reputation that Oman is receiving as an up market leisure destination as well as an increasingly important business centre.
Oman Air has just 20 seats fitted in its business class cabin, featuring a 4 abreast 1-2-1 layout and offers 17” video monitors.
