Muscat: In a new step in its success journey, Muscat Bay, the integrated tourism complex on Qantab beach, has announced the signing of an agreement with Al Sharqiya Aviation (ASA) under which it will provide helicopter transportation services to and from Muscat Bay.
Announcing the landmark agreement, Sheikh Hamood bin Sultan Al Hosni, CEO of Muscat Bay, said, “As one of the pioneering projects that promise its homeowners a unique experience at various levels, Muscat Bay has prepared a special helicopter helipad to serve as a new added value for the owners of residential units in the project. ASA has been chosen to provide this service in line with leading international standards; thus making Muscat Bay the first integrated tourism complex in the Sultanate to offer transportation services by the air taxi (helicopters). This comes in line with our aspirations to raise the standards of such residential projects so that they can compete not only at the local level but also at the regional and global levels. We are delighted to launch this new service, which will provide a convenient solution for those wishing to visit the project from all over the world.”
Captain Wafid Jaffar, ASA CEO stated, “We are delighted to partner with a unique project such as Muscat Bay to provide air transport services on our Airbus H125 with a seating capacity of five passengers and a pilot. This is regarded as a new addition to the growing tourism sector in the Sultanate. We are confident that this service will be well received by those wishing to visit Muscat Bay from inside and outside the Sultanate, and for them to get to know the special offers on the leading residential units with a freehold feature.”
Al Hosni continued, “Muscat Bay is a miniature natural oasis spanning an area of 2.2 million square metres with a unique waterfront surrounded by magnificent Hajar mountain range. It comprises an exclusive and very limited range of luxurious residential units that have been carefully designed to reflect the beautiful nature surrounding the place. It’s also has been designed to be a haven for those who are looking to get away from city life and enjoy complete tranquillity in an exceptional ideal modern destination. And by launching air transport services to and from Muscat Bay, we have provided another new feature of this unique project.”
