Oman Air confirms support for MoSD’s initiatives

MUSCAT: Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman, is reviewing its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programmes to ensure the airline is providing optimum support to social insurance families and those with special needs. Working in close co-ordination with the Ministry of Social Development, (MoSD) Oman Air aims to deliver a range of projects which provide assistance to eligible citizens to assist them in achieving their full potential. As a result, Oman Air is pleased to announce a 50 per cent discount for individuals travelling from families that come under the social insurance programme and their accompanying person. This also includes those with special needs who may be travelling for medical treatment and study purposes.
Paul Gregorowitsch, Chief Executive Officer of Oman Air, commented:
“As the National Carrier of the Sultanate of Oman, Oman Air is proud to be working closely with the MoSD to improve the life of Omani citizens. At Oman Air we have expanded the range of our community initiatives to support eligible individuals reach their full potential and achieve a rewarding and balanced life. We have also provided vital backing for a range of educational, cultural and sporting initiatives which not only help to improve the lives of individuals, but also make an important contribution to the economic and social well-being of the Sultanate.”
Dr Khalid Abdul Wahab Al Balushi, Senior Manager Government Relations, added: “Oman Air’s support for the work of the Ministry of Social Development stems from its endeavours to support the community to deliver a positive, long-term impact within our less advantaged communities.”
Oman Air has a record of providing sustained support for people with special needs. For example, the airline partnered with the Public Authority for Small and Medium Enterprises and the Al Raffd Fund to run a workshop in Muscat.
Here, the importance of providing financial backing for students with special needs was emphasised, the availability of practical and financial support was outlined and students learned about the significance of economic independence.
