Abdulaziz al Raisi, CEO of Oman Air, said:“With COVID-19 a persisting reality for global aviation, we continue to take all necessary precautions to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our guests and employees at all times. Earning 5-Star certification in two separate Skytrax categories highlights the importance we place—and have always placed—on health and safety, and reiterates our responsibility to make flying as safe as possible for our guests and crew throughout the pandemic and beyond.”


The COVID-19 Safety audit was conducted in January 2021, evaluating a mixture of long haul and regional flights, including the COVID-19 safety standards of the service and facilities at the home base of Muscat International Airport. During February 2021, Oman Air made additional improvements to its COVID-19 procedures to meet the required 5-Star Rating standards.


Edward Plaisted, CEO, Skytrax said: "Oman Air had an enforced break from flying during 2020 and used this time to effectively map out safe travel systems for both customers and staff. The range and quality of measures observed during the recent COVID-19 audit is commendable for not only facilitating appropriate coronavirus protection measures, but doing this in a way that retains a good customer experience in terms of both product and service standards."
