The idea for this new baggage offer was raised at a guest panel organized by Oman Air on 23 May, where a selection of the airline’s Sindbad Frequent Flyer members were asked for their opinions and suggestions on how Oman Air can improve its new baggage system. The decision was then taken by Oman Air to implement this special baggage offer during Ramadan.
Oman Air’s Deputy CEO and Executive Vice President – Commercial, Abdul Rahman Al Busaidy said: “We are delighted to be introducing this special baggage offer in Ramadan as a way to celebrate the holy month and meet the needs of our valued guests. As an airline, we place great importance on listening to our guests and responding to their opinions as we continue our journey to ‘Become the Best’. We will be advertising the special policy to the public through multiple channels to ensure that the message is clearly conveyed and that everyone can take advantage of this great offer.”
