Oman's Tourism Minister launches Oman's largest summer campaign in the GCC backed by the Ministry of Tourism, Oman Air and the Sultanate of Oman's leading hotels. The campaign includes trade workshops, shopping mall promotions across the GCC, and will be backed by an aggressive media campaign that consolidates Oman's marketing theme: Beauty has an address ~ Oman. The campaign runs from May to 1 October 2010, with sales through Oman Air Holidays and travel agencies.
ATM Dubai: Speaking at the campaign's launch, Her Excellency Dr Rajiha Abdul Ameer Ali, Oman's Minister of Tourism said "Oman's Summer Campaign is a highly competitive industry-wide initiative. The Ministry, Oman Air and our leading hotels/resorts and apartments have crafted packages for affordable short-breaks, family and leisure holidays. The packages are based on heavily discounted air fares, attractive accommodation rates, and include all taxes, with the incentive of an extra day free for a weekend or longer booking" she said.
The campaign highlights Oman's continuing focus on integrated campaigns with key stakeholders. The campaign covers city-based accommodation, regional getaways, as well as Salalah's Khareef season.
Peter Hill, Oman Air's Chief Executive Officer said "ATM was the right place and time to launch the campaign because our GCC trade partners can see first-hand that we have packages that put Oman in the reach of all GCC segments. For our part, Oman Air has contributed heavily discounted air fares on all its 130 services per week between GCC destinations and Oman. It has never been more affordable to visit and enjoy Oman".
Oman's new tourism hotels and experiences (Six Senses Zighy Bay Resort and Spa's hide-away retreat, Swiss Bel's Masirah Island Hotel and Marriott's Hotel and Spa at Salalah) have joined the campaign.
Mr. Hill said "Oman Air's new services to Ras Al Khaimah (from 2 May) will provide better access to Zighy Bay from Muscat while additional services will be added for holiday makers to Salalah's Khareef and Tourism Festival".
