So we hope everyone will make use of that,” an official of a leading airline said.

Yesterday, Jet Airways, India’s full-service, premier international airline, announced a special online promotion in celebration of the forthcoming 47th Oman National Day.

Under the offer, guests can enjoy up to 12 per cent off on existing fares on bookings made on the Jet Airways’ direct flights from Muscat to over 50 destinations in its network, including those in India, Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka and the Far East.

Guests can take advantage of the promotion’s extended travel validity – beginning immediately and until May 31, 2018, to firm up travel either to their dream destinations or to plan well-deserved holidays with family and friends during the forthcoming winter season.

In commemoration of the 47th National Day celebrations, the airline has also announced lucky prizes in the form of “extra baggage allowance” that can be won by 47 guests during the offer period.

Wasim Zaidi, General Manager, Jet Airways, said, “As the preferred carrier on the Indo-Gulf route, Jet Airways enjoys a long standing and deeply cherished relationship with the Sultanate of Oman. We hereby congratulate and extend our best wishes to the people of Oman on their 47th National Day.”

Oman Air, Qatar Airways, Omantel and OOREDOO are also offering deals over the holiday period, to celebrate the 47th National Day holiday in Oman.
