Oman Air moves crew operations to a new facility

Posted 3 December 2018 · Add Comment

Oman Air has officially opened a new state-of-the-art Crew Reporting Centre at its hub in Muscat.

The purpose-built crew terminal is fitted with cutting-edge baggage handling systems, electronic check-in kiosks and security and customs scanning equipment. Serving the burgeoning requirements of flight crews and Oman Air Operations Team, the Crew Reporting Centre eliminates the need to access the Departure Terminal at the airport. 

The airline will provide user-friendly technology and convenience for its 691 pilots and approximately 1757 cabin crew during the check-in and briefing processes prior to boarding their flights. Operating crews will be provided with up-to-date flight information such as flight plans, weather reports, destination information, service protocol and passenger data, for review in dedicated briefing areas within the premises.

Abdulaziz Al Raisi, Oman Air’s chief executive officer, said: “We are extremely proud to open this spectacular facility, which has been designed and built to provide our operating crew with the latest technological advances and the utmost convenience. Providing Oman Air with a much-needed facility as it caters to the increasing demand for air travel in the region, this Centre will allow us to pursue further opportunities for growth.

“The Crew Reporting Centre will allow us to meet the challenges of an ever-transforming business and to meet the phenomenal growth of both Oman Air and Oman well into the future. This is particularly important in the period following the opening of the new Passenger Terminal in Muscat International Airport.”
