Muscat: Oman Air has unveiled a new incentive scheme for travel agents.
The new loyalty scheme was unveiled by Oman Air’s Senior Vice President, Network and Planning, Aboudy Nasser, at an event held recently.
Under the new scheme, the best-selling travel agent for every quarter will receive a grand prize of a Mini Cooper, apart from other attractive cash support for the agency for training and joint marketing.
At an event titled, ‘Together We Succeed,’ Oman Air welcomed its travel agents.
Paul Gregorowitsch, the CEO of Oman Air, expressed his gratitude to the travel agents for their efforts and support to the national carrier of Oman.
“Travel agents are an integral segment of Oman Air’s business. Last year, in spite of the bleak outlook, Oman Air did relatively well in terms of generating revenues, reporting an increase of 9 per cent over 2015. In the highly competitive environment with oversupply of seats in the GCC, this is a remarkable achievement,” he said.
“Unfortunately, the revenues earned were still below target, as prices of tickets had fallen further. The lower ticket prices also affected the income of the travel agencies as commissions paid were reduced. With the newly announced loyalty scheme,everyone will have a better opportunity to achieve more sales for Oman Air. As the national airline is committed to the growth strategy as endorsed by the Omani government, even more opportunities to sell and fly Oman Air are being offered,” he said.
Jamal Al Azki, Country Manager, Oman Air, said: “As the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman, and with over 181 flights per day, Oman Air plays a key role in diversifying the Omani economy. By being a bridge between Oman and the world, and acting as its ambassadors, we are constantly working to bring more tourists and business to the country.”
