Guests travelling in Oman Air’s premium cabins will be offered the chance to enjoy a complimentary overnight stay with breakfast at the hotel as part of the airline’s campaign to increase stopover visitors to the Sultanate. For those wanting to stay for slightly longer, the hotel is offering preferential rates for a second or third night.
Richard Bodin, Senior Vice President of Oman Air Holidays said, “With so much for the discerning traveller to enjoy, we want to tempt our guests, who were planning to use Muscat simply as a connection point to other destinations across our network, to break their journey and see some of the Sultanate. We are sure that a short stay like this will ‘plant the seed’ for a longer holiday in the near future. This is a guaranteed way of promoting Oman as a fabulous holiday destination.”
Katrin Herz, General Manager at Al Bustan Palace, a Ritz-Carlton Hotel, agrees: “This remarkable offer will attract interest from around the world and particularly aims to capture the imagination of those passengers who can afford the time to add an extra day (or up to a maximum of three days) to their travel plans and visit our resort with our compliments. We are delighted to work with Oman Air to promote stopover visitors to the country”
Abdulaziz Al Raisi, CEO of Oman Air added that the airline is committed to supporting the Government’s Tourism Strategy to grow the number of inbound visitors to Oman. “As the national airline, linking over 54 destinations across our network, we are best placed to drive traffic to the Sultanate and this initiative is only the first of many planned campaigns to promote the country. With a blend of innovative thinking and strong partnerships, as demonstrated in this campaign, we are determined to help grow tourist numbers to Oman.”
Al Bustan Palace, a Ritz-Carton Hotel, has been a cornerstone of the luxury hotel market in Oman for many years and is well known throughout the world. Secluded amid an emerald green oasis, overlooked by the rugged Al Hajar Mountains, Al Bustan Palace, a Ritz-Carlton Hotel reopened its doors in 2018 after a redefining renovation. With the glittering Oman See beckoning from the edge of its 80 beachfront hectares and the glimmer of an exquisite crystal chandelier in the towering lobby, the palace is a destination for both luxury travellers and high-profile events.
