Air Chief Executive Officer Wayne Pearce commented:

“We
are delighted to have marked the important contribution to Oman Air’s
continuing success made by the Captains, First officers, Cabin Crew and Administrative
staff of our Flight Operations and Cabin Crew departments. Our efficiency,
service standards and punctuality performed exceedingly well in 2013, thanks in
no small part to the enthusiasm of our dedicated team and I am confident that
figures for 2014 will show ongoing improvements. As a result, passenger numbers
are up and customer feedback is very positive. Our thanks go to all those staff
who have made this possible.”
Oman Air’s Chief Officer, Flight Operations, Ali
Sulaiman said:
 “The commitment of Oman Air’s Flight Operations
has ensured that our modern and reliable fleet of Airbus A330s, Boeing B737s,
Embraer E175s and ATR 42s have operated efficiently with high reliability, to
provide our customers with a taste of Omani hospitality. This achievement was
enhanced by the commitment of our pilots and cabin crew.
As Oman Air continues to grow more pilots are
required. The Flight Operations department has recently intensified the
recruitment drive to bring a sharp increase in the number of Omani citizens
taking up posts as trainee pilots. During 2013, 38 candidates were sponsored by
Oman Air on a range of training courses conducted in the Middle East, France
and the UK, many of whom have taken up our offer to Omani citizens of places on
a scholarship programme that assists with the costs of training to become
pilots.”
Oman
Air’s Chief Officer Airport Operations, Andrew Walsh, added:
The
professionalism of the cabin crew staff has also enabled staff throughout the
organisation to deliver an impressively high standard of service and that our
customers have enjoyed a seamless passenger experience. It has been a pleasure
to join our Chief Executive Officer and my fellow Chief Officers in thanking
those whose diligence has contributed much to Oman Air’s success.”

The recruitment drive anticipates major growth in
Oman’s fleet, following the arrival from late 2014 of the first of 20 aircraft
which are currently on order. These include three Airbus A330s, six Boeing 787s
and 11 Boeing B737s. It is expected that Oman Air’s fleet strength will rise
over the next few years to around 50 aircraft, from its current level of 30.
