Farnborough: Oman Air's Business Class seat wins at World Airline Awards 2012
For the second year running, Oman Air has won 'Best Business Class Airline Seat' at the prestigious World Airline Awards, run by Skytrax.
The award recognises Oman Air’s Airbus A330 Business Class seat and was presented to the airline’s chief executive officer, Wayne Pearce, at a ceremony held at the UK’s Farnborough International Airshow 2012, on Thursday 12th July.
Oman Air was also nominated in a number of other categories and came second in the ‘Best Airline Staff Service in Middle East’ and ‘Best First Class Catering’ categories and third in the ‘World’s Best Business Class’ category. In addition, top ten placings were achieved in the ‘Best First Class Airline Seat’ and ‘Best Business Class Airline Lounge’ and ‘Best Airline in the Middle East’ categories.
Pearce said: “Winning Best Business Class Seat in the World for the second consecutive year is an outstanding accolade, as is being nominated in so many other categories, and I would like to thank the World Airline Awards and all those who voted for Oman Air.
“This award recognises the superb quality of our Business Class product and the number of votes that Oman Air received indicates not only that our customers are impressed by their passenger experience, but also that our Business Class service truly exceeds their expectations.
“Ever since we introduced our A330 Business Class seat, with its unparalleled comfort, space and luxury, customers have often mistaken it for First Class and it is clear that our focus on delivering the very best in all areas of our work is appreciated by air travellers around the world.”
