(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Oman Air celebrated recently the tenth anniversary of its Bahrain service with a series of exciting events involving international diplomats, staff, travel agents and other valued partners.
The celebrations started when Oman Air's Bahrain sales staff and GSA partners gathered at the airline's offices in the Bahraini capital of Manama to hold a ceremonial cutting of a specially-branded birthday cake. A similar ceremony took place at Bahrain International Airport, where Oman Air's staff were joined by representatives from Bahrain Airport Services and the civil aviation authorities.
The celebrations continued at the Sofitel Hotel, in an impressive ceremony, where senior managers from Oman Air were joined by ambassadors from a number of embassies, business leaders and the media. This event was jointly hosted with the Thai Embassy and Sofitel, with whom a series of promotions were also planned as part of the Thai Week, which ran during the same period. The guests at the event included not only travel agents, but also VIPs and local media representatives.
A glittering awards ceremony is planned to be held at the fivestar Sheraton Hotel later this month to recognise the contributions and commitment offered by Bahrain's travel agents in ensuring that Oman Air's Bahrain service has grown to become such a success over the last decade. Abdulrazaq Alraisi, chief commercial officer, Oman Air commented, ''Since Oman Air launched its service between Muscat and Bahrain ten years ago, the success of the route, and of Oman Air itself, has grown significantly.
We now operate up to three flights a day between the two destinations, utilising superb Embraer 175 and Boeing 737 aircraft and offering award-winning hospitality on every flight. ''We are extremely proud, therefore, to celebrate the tenth anniversary and we would like to thank all those whose invaluable hard work, commitment and support have made the service such a success. ''We look forward to welcoming many more customers aboard our aircraft here in Bahrain.''<
