Oman Air, Taiseer sign memorandum to promote local businesses

Muscat: A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to help market and promote local businesses has been signed between Oman Air, the Sultanate's national carrier and Taiseer.
Taiseer acts as a local trading platform that aims to create an integrated business environment between companies.
The aim of the MoU is to help market and promote local businesses in Oman, in particular Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs), to Oman Air.
Taiseer will act as a mediator for Oman Air and will help to gain access to additional and new SMEs and vice-versa.
Taiseer operates by facilitating business deals, contracts and projects, as well as purchasing orders and recruitment opportunities through the promotion of the products and services of local businesses.
The company then channels these into one platform that acts as a marketing and promotion tool enabling all companies who have an agreement with Taiseer to access the platform and find out the opportunities available in the local market.
Oman Air benefits from the year-long contract signed with Taiseer by streamlining and expanding the airline’s access to the services of local businesses, in particular SMEs.
In doing so, Oman Air is continuing its commitment to promoting and developing local businesses as part of Oman Air’s policy.
Currently, local companies’ participation with Oman Air’s tenders and requisitions in all areas of Oman Air’s operations is more than 80%. It is anticipated signing the MOU with Taiseer will further enhance this participation, especially amongst SMEs.
