OMAN Air has partnered with Al Bustan Palace, a Ritz-Carlton Hotel, in Muscat to offer an exclusive benefit to its First and Business class passengers.
Guests travelling in Oman Air’s premium cabins will be offered the chance to enjoy a complimentary night stay with breakfast at the iconic hotel as part of the airlines’ campaign to increase stopover visitors to the Sultanate. For those wanting to stay for slightly longer, the hotel is offering preferential rates for a second or third night.
Richard Bodin, senior vice-president of Oman Air Holidays said, “With so much for the discerning traveller to enjoy, we want to tempt our guests, who were planning to use Muscat simply as a connection point to other destinations across our network, to break their journey and see some of the Sultanate. We are sure that a short stay like this will ‘plant the seed’ for a longer holiday in the near future. This is a guaranteed way of promoting Oman as a fabulous holiday destination.”
Katrin Herz, general manager at Al Bustan Palace, a Ritz-Carlton Hotel, agrees: “This remarkable offer will attract interest from around the world and particularly aims to capture the imagination of those passengers who can afford the time to add an extra day (or up to a maximum of three days) to their travel plans and visit our resort with our compliments. We are delighted to work with Oman Air to promote stopover visitors to the country.”
Abdulaziz Al Raisi, CEO of Oman Air added that the airline is committed to supporting the Government’s Tourism Strategy to grow the number of inbound visitors to Oman. “As the national airline, linking over 54 destinations across our network, we are best placed to drive traffic to the Sultanate and this initiative is only the first of many planned campaigns to promote the country. With a blend of innovative thinking and strong partnerships, as demonstrated in this campaign, we are determined to help grow tourist numbers to Oman.”
