(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The importance of India to Oman Air's sales strategy was underlined recently, when the national carrier of the sultanate held its India Business Review and sales team orientation programme in Jaipur, the Pink City of India.
The event, held on April 2 and 3, was presided over by Oman Air's chief commercial officer Abdulrazaq Alraisi, supported by the airline's general manager worldwide sales and senior manager sales - Asia Pacific, and brought together Oman Air's country manager - India, district sales managers from Oman Air's ten Indian stations and the management and sales team heads of its GSAs in India.
Alraisi said, ''Oman Air's India Business Review was an excellent way of bringing together our sales staff and partners and agreeing a way forwards which will bring commercial success through planned and co-ordinated working. ''The focus of the business review and sales team orientation was to evaluate market conditions and develop smart solutions for optimising revenues on every flight from, or to, India.
Oman Air's staff in India is already doing a very good job, but we must not relax in our efforts to ensure that Oman Air becomes the airline of choice within the country. To this end, we received a number of outstanding presentations during the sessions, which offered insights into some of the desired pricing strategies and selling processes which will help us to optimise performance, and these were complemented by a training session on dimensions of professional selling, conducted by Carew International.
''I would like to thank all those who participated, especially those members who took a very active role and came up with prize-winning smart solutions, and I look forward to the ideas and inspiration that emerged from the event brought to fruition over the coming weeks and months.'' India is a vital market for Oman Air, reflecting both the excellent political and economic relationship shared by the two countries and the fact that Indian nationals represent one of the largest expatriate communities residing in the sultanate.
