Muscat: Oman Air has formally launched its exclusive new first class and business class check-in lounge at Muscat International Airport. 

The facility, which enjoyed a soft launch earlier in the year, is designed to provide the premium customers of the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman with a smooth and elegant start to their Oman Air passenger experience.

With its own entrance and sumptuous lounge area, dedicated staff, and fast-track security clearance and baggage drop, the new check-in service eliminates any waiting and provides an ideal introduction to Oman Air's extremely high standards of service. Furthermore, being just a short walk from the airline's acclaimed first and business class lounges, the check-in experience sets the tone of a refined elegance and luxury which stays with the traveller throughout their journey.

Eng. Salim bin Nasser Al Aufi, chairman of Oman Air's executive committee and CEO of Oman's Public Authority for Civil Aviation, welcomed the formal opening, saying, "We are pleased to announce the formal opening of Oman Air's new first and business class check-in lounge at Muscat International Airport. By providing this exclusive start to our premium customers' journeys, supported by outstanding personal service, this new facility provides a perfect introduction to Oman Air's award-winning passenger experience."

Oman Air's Chief Executive Officer Wayne Pearce added, "The launch of our new first and business class check-in facilities at Muscat International Airport underlines our commitment to providing our premium customers with the ultimate air travel experience. 

"The new service builds on our superb first and business class lounges at Muscat and Bangkok, our first class lounge-to-aircraft limousine service at Muscat and our door-to-door limousine service which is offered to premium customers at many of our destinations across our network. 

"Most importantly, the new check-in lounge provides a gateway to our outstanding in-flight experience, which has won countless international awards and was recognised with top-three placings in three categories of this year's Skytrax World Airline Awards, which were announced at the Paris Air Show."
