Oman Air Cargo, freight division of the National Carrier of Oman will launch its range of services at TransOman Expo and Conference, which is set from October 13 to 15, 2009 at the Oman International Exhibition Centre.
TransOman Conference is from 14th to 15th October at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Seeb, Muscat.
Despite the serious downturn in international freight and developing infrastructure constrains, Oman Air Cargo has expanded fleet growth and revenue.
Oman Air Cargo offers 27 destinations within its online network and offers 41 off-line destinations covering Europe, USA and Canada.
A member of TransOman Advisory Committee, Mohamed Sherief, General Manager, Oman Air Cargo, (pictured) said, 'The introduction of our A330 routes have given us an excellent opportunity to sell beyond Muscat and become a network transhipment carrier in our own right. We have successfully opened to US destinations recently with our interline partner Continental Airlines. Oman Air cargo can now sell all US destinations, which is a leap forward in our network development. Customers will gain confidence that Oman Air is always seeking creative solutions to meet their needs'.
Oman Air cargo is featuring high level service abilities by successfully carrying sensitive commodities. 'We carry even the racing car of our own Ahmed Al Harthy', Sherief said.
Oman Air's narrow-bodied aircraft fleet is the back-bone in serving local and regional community with high frequency services offered to a large range of destinations.
'As TransOman is the first of its kind in the Sultanate, it will be the launching pad for Oman Air's activity on a local scale. The event is expected to draw international exporters, importers and logistics players towards Oman Air and its Cargo Services. With TransOman, we expect great interest and serious business opportunities at this very interesting time in our history.
Going forward, Oman Air Cargo will focus on strategic initiatives, capitalising on revenue opportunities through custom-tailored cargo handling solutions at Muscat International Airport.
