Oman Air is awarded the 5-Star COVID-19 Airline Safety Rating


Oman Air has been Certified with the highest level 5-Star COVID-19 Airline Safety Rating. The Skytrax COVID-19 Rating is the world’s first and only assessment and certification of airline health and safety measures during the coronavirus pandemic that is based on professional and scientific investigation of the actual standards being provided by an airline at the airport and onboard flights.


Mr Abdul Aziz Al Raisi, CEO of Oman Air said: “Oman Air has always been a safety-first airline and our commitment to passenger health and well-being—not just on board our aircraft but across the entire guest experience from check-in to final destination—plays a leading role in our business priorities. We are honoured to receive this latest recognition from Skytrax, which serves to highlight the tremendous efforts made by our airline to ensure that the highest levels of COVID-19 safety precautions are consistently met on every journey with Oman Air.”


The COVID-19 Safety audit was conducted in January 2021, evaluating a mixture of long haul and regional flights, including the COVID-19 safety standards of the service and facilities at the home base airport of Muscat International Airport. During February 2021, Oman Air has made some additional improvements to their COVID-19 procedures to meet the required 5-Star Rating standards.


Since resuming flights in October 2020 Oman Air has implemented a comprehensive range of protocols to reduce the risks associated with COVID-19, and this is being delivered as part of the airline’s “Fly Confidently” promise. The areas of social distancing, face mask usage and hand hygiene are well enforced across all key front line customer service positions in the airport and onboard, and this is being effectively achieved through a range of appealing information signage, and staff intervention and management of passengers.
