“This conference has provided the opportunity to recognise the excellent work carried out to date, listen to the views and suggestions of our front-line managers and plan effectively for the future. I look forward to working with each of our Airport Services Managers to deliver an outstanding passenger experience for every customer.”


Don Hunter, Oman Air’s Chief Officer, Airport Operations, added, “Our Airport Services Managers play an essential role in delivering success for Oman Air. As Oman Air continues to grow in size and reputation, the importance of that role will continue to increase, as will the importance of a coordinated international approach to managing our services.
