Oman Air unveils transformation plan
Oman Air has unveiled a new transformation plan that will see it
harmonise its fleet, reorganise its structure and increase its dependence on
digital tools, the airline has announced.
Oman Air CEO Abdulaziz Al Raisi said that the plans, established over several
months with input from across the company, require the airline’s employees to
rise to the challenge.
“A transformation programme is not an easy task,” he said. “All of us, we need
to drive this programme.
“Our transformation plan requires major changes, which can be disruptive,” he
added. “We work in an industry of constant disruption and we must be
proactive…we have every reason to believe that all our people will deliver the
results we need.”
Earlier in September, Oman Air announced that it had cancelled more than 300
flights over the course of the month because of the ongoing suspension of the
Boeing 737 Max.
Among the destinations affected are Salalah, Riyadh, Dammam, Jeddah, Madinah,
Amman, Jaipur, Hyderabad, Colombo and Karachi.
“As a result of the Public Authority for Civil Aviation’s (PACA) directive on
suspension of Boeing 737 Max, we have cancelled many flights till October 1,”
the airline said in a statement. “We are rebooking guests on alternative/next
available flights to their destinations. We advise all our guests who are due to
travel during the period to check flight status.”
