Oman Air reaffirms support for MoSD’s initiatives

Posted 15 August 2018 · Add Comment

Oman Air has introduced a range of projects to ensure providing optimum support to families under social insurance families and those with special needs.

 

Working in close co-ordination with the Ministry of Social Development, (MoSD) Oman Air aims to assist the eligible citizens in achieving their full potential. 

The airline has restated its commitment to sustainable social development and has pledged to continue promoting initiatives, which aim to develop and support people with special needs. The Ministry of Social Development makes the support of these citizens a major priority and it works to meet their needs on a daily basis.

Oman Air’s Chief Executive Officer, Engineer Abdulaziz Al Raisi, commented: “As the National Carrier of the Sultanate of Oman, Oman Air is proud to be working closely with the MoSD to improve the life of the citizens of our nation. At Oman Air we have expanded the range of our community initiatives to support eligible individuals reach their full potential and achieve a rewarding and balanced life. Oman Air supports a wide range of educational, cultural and sporting schemes which not only help to improve the lives of individuals, but also make an important contribution to the economic and social wellbeing of the Sultanate.”

The airline has developed a genuine strong partnership with the Ministry of Social Development. For example, the national carrier offers a 50 percent discount for individuals travelling from families that fall under the social insurance programme and their accompanying person. This includes those who are travelling for medical treatment and study purposes. Also, new graduates from high schools in Oman are entitled to receive a 25 percent discount on return flights to enable them to continue their studies overseas, with baggage allowance of 10kg above the weight normally permitted. In addition, Oman Air recently introduced a new Senior Citizen Discount on flights, wherein Omani nationals can get up to 15 percent discount on domestic flight bookings.
