The judging panel, made up of eight aviation and design experts, awarded Oman Air with the accolades following the unveiling of the new lounge at Muscat Airport and the launch of the three-class Dreamliner earlier this year. The award acknowledges the carrier’s commitment to offering the very best in design and customer experience to its guests.

Oman Air CEO, Eng. Abdulaziz Al Raisi, said: “Oman has such a rich heritage and inspires us through design and also an inherent sense of hospitality and service. It is a great honour to receive such positive feedback from our guests and industry experts alike.”

Oman Air’s guest experience, brand, and product development teams worked collaboratively to create our bespoke First Class cabin and lounge offerings, and we were delighted with the results.”

Saleem Amanulla, vice president, airport operations, Oman Air said: “It is indeed an honour to be recognised with a design award for our lounges at the new passenger terminal. We have integrated in the design element of the premium lounges the influence of the desert and mountains found in Oman and this inspiration has produced a beautiful area for guests to relax before boarding. Apart from receving appreciation from our guests, such awards are also hugely motivating.”
