MUSCAT: Following the success of the recently extended Business and First-class stopover offer, Oman Air is launching another attractive offer for all its passengers. Partnering with the Grand Millennium Muscat, Oman Air’s guests, travelling through Oman on to their end destination, can now enjoy a free night’s accommodation in this luxurious hotel in the centre of Muscat.
Passengers travelling from the Far East on their way to Europe, or vice-versa, can now leave the airport in Muscat to enjoy a complimentary 5-star night in the capital, as well as an opportunity to have a glimpse of the city and its highlights and return to their travels the next day. Visitors wanting to extend their stay can avail attractive rates at the hotel.
Richard Bodin, Senior Vice President of Oman Air Holidays said, “We are delighted with the success of our previous campaign, offering a free stopover option to our Premium guests. We are now broadening our offer to include all our passenger base and we are excited to partner with Grand Millennium Muscat for this campaign. We are confident that the hotel’s impressive services will be tempting for our guests to return to the Sultanate.”
He added: “Oman Air has been successfully attracting passengers from across the world to use Muscat as a connection point to other destinations across our network. Campaigns like this are appealing to them to break their journey, step out of the airport and see some parts of the Sultanate; thereby, promoting Oman and all it has to offer. This is one of the ways Oman Air optimizes its partnership with the hospitality industry to increase the number of inbound visitors to Oman and broadly support the government’s tourism strategy.”
Luca Medda, Cluster General Manager at Millennium Hotels and Resorts confirmed his company’s commitment to the campaign: “We are keen to promote Oman to travelers across the globe, and what better way than to get them to actually sample our quality and the famous Omani culture and friendliness than a complimentary stay at our property. We are ideally located in the centre of Muscat so exploring the city’s many tourist sites is easy, and of course we are linked by walkway to the Grand Mall, so we offer the additional benefit to those wanting some ‘retail therapy’ as they explore the city.”
The Grand Millennium Muscat is a modern luxury hotel that has rapidly established itself as one of the premium properties in Oman. A tribute to the rich, cultural heritage and time-honored values of Oman, the 5-star Grand Millennium Muscat is centrally located in the business, government and diplomatic district whilst the airport is just 15 minutes away. It is within easy reach of beaches, shopping malls and the Royal Opera House of Muscat.
