Muscat: National carrier Oman Air has been named as the winner of the 'Best Airline Staff Service in the Middle East' award at the prestigious Skytrax World Airline Awards 2017, voted for by air travellers based on their experiences.

The award was presented at a ceremony held at the recent Paris Air Show.

This year’s award of makes it the fourth time the airline has won it, following wins in the same category in 2011, 2014 and 2015.

Paul Gregorowitsch, Chief Executive Officer, Oman Air, said, "The awards are the most prestigious accolades available within the air travel industry and offer an unparalleled benchmark of quality for the services airlines offer. To have won this award four times is a testament to the extraordinarily high standards of hospitality that our colleagues provide to all our guests. That hospitality is an extension of Omani culture, so this award is recognition not only of Oman Air's service, but also of the warm welcome offered to every visitor to Oman."

Oman Air is currently engaged in a well considered and sustainable expansion programme which will see the carrier operate 70 aircraft to around 75 destinations by 2023. In recent months, the airline has increased the size of its fleet, launched new services to Guangzhou, Nairobi and Manchester and increased frequency on a number of its established routes.
