Oman Air has accepted the Cirium award for Best On-Time Performance (OTP), for which it ranked highest in the Middle East and Africa during 2023. Capt. Nasser Al Salmi, Oman Air’s Chief Operating Officer, accepted the award from Cirium Chief Executive Officer, Jeremy Bowen, during the Arabian Travel Market (ATM) Dubai, where the airline is participating in collaboration with the Ministry of Heritage and Tourism and Oman Airports. Oman Air’s newly appointed CEO, Con Korfiatis, also attended alongside Chief Transformation Officer Ahmed Al Amry and other members of the management team, where they met with key industry stakeholders and partners.

“Achieving the highest on-time performance rating amongst our regional peers is a true testament to our unwavering commitment to excellence and reliability in air travel. For us, on-time performance is more than just a metric; it is a cornerstone of our guest experience. I would like to extend my appreciation to our dedicated crew, in the air and on the ground, for continuing to ensure smooth and seamless journeys for our passengers,” commented Capt. Nasser Al Salmi.

“On-Time performance is competitive, especially in the Middle East and Africa region, where top performers are usually only separated by fractions of a percentage.  Oman Air however continues to deliver on its commitment to on-time performance. In 2023, it did something truly remarkable, the Most On-Time Middle East and Africa airline with an OTP rate of 92.53%.  It was also the highest score recorded among all carriers across all categories in 2023.  A heartfelt congratulations to everyone at Oman Air,” said Jeremy Bowen.

As the region’s leading international travel and tourism event, ATM Dubai offers the airline a unique opportunity to market its products and services to travel trade experts from all over the world, while also showcasing Oman’s diverse tourism offerings. During the event, Oman Air also announced frequency increases on several of its most popular routes for the summer schedule, including Bangkok, Phuket, Dar es Salaam/ Zanzibar and Milan.
