The agreements with Swiss International Airlines, Turkish Cargo and GoAir were signed at the Sundus Rotana Muscat.
Providing distinctive services for ground handling and continuous developments in terms of excellence and efficiency in the services provided, was the main reason for Oman Ground Handling for obtaining the tenders offered by the airlines.
Swiss International Airlines operates seven flights a week from Zurich to Muscat. Turkish Cargo recently started operating air cargo flights twice a week from Istanbul to Muscat. GoAir is a low-cost carrier based in Mumbai, India. Its operations will begin in Muscat on February 1. It will operate seven flights a week from Kannur International Airport in Kerala to Muscat International Airport.
Dr Khalfan bin Saeed al Shueili, chief executive officer of Oman Aviation Services, said, “Oman Ground Handling seeks to develop its ground-based services by investing in staff, equipment and modern technologies. Since its inception over the years, Oman Ground Handling has been offering services with 95 per cent performance accuracy and speed, as well as a high performance in the handling of bags and the level of production in various services.
“Thirty-five airlines with more than 120,000 flights are providing ground services at Oman’s airports.”
