“It has been both a pleasure and an
honour to manage Oman Air through this crucial stage of its development. I
would like to thank the Chairman and the Board of Directors for their support and
to staff at every level of Oman Air for the efforts they have provided
throughout my tenure as CEO. I am pleased to have played a role in ensuring
that Oman Air is now a more professionally capable airline, whilst maintaining
a clear focus on delivering the highest quality standards in all areas of the

I am pleased that we have been able to gain a
major increase in our passenger seat factor to 76% whilst achieving over a 30%
