Oman Air’s website, www.omanair.com, has been acclaimed as one of the airline industry’s best. The site, which was relaunched in 2014, has been included in a comprehensive round-up of “The Best Airline Website Designs”, published by leading international design magazine Onextrapixel.
The list includes 20 of the best airline website designs in the world. Inclusion in the list was based on airlines’ success in balancing the importance of offering an attractive and compelling landing page with the requirement to include a large amount of information.
Carol Francis, of Onextrapixel, commented:
“The problem with designing for airlines is that so much information has to go on the landing page – there has to be a form for inputting flight dates, and special offer information, etc. This means that when it comes to the presentation, we are mainly looking at beautiful background images, and in this regard the designers don’t disappoint.”
Responding to the acclaim, Oman Air’s Chief Executive Officer, Paul Gregorowitsch, commented:
“We are delighted that Oman Air’s website has been named by Onextrapixel as one of the best in the world.
“Our website is often a customer’s first contact with Oman Air. It is vitally important, therefore, that it not only provides the information they need, but also provides an appropriate introduction to the airline. Oman Air has attracted a well-deserved reputation for the outstanding quality of its products and services. We are also immensely proud of our role as the national airline of the Sultanate of Oman. Our website reflects both of these priorities extremely well. At the same time, it provides easy and convenient access to a wealth of information, offers and booking opportunities. We are very proud that it has been recognised in this way.”
Oman Air’s website is available in English and Arabic versions. It forms part of the airline’s expanding digital presence, which includes the Oman Air app, which was unveiled in May 2015. This complements Oman Air’s website and enables customers to book and purchase tickets, check in and update their flight status. They can also find out about Oman Air’s latest offers and access up-to-the-minute service information. Furthermore, Oman Air has developed the Sindbad app for members of its frequent flyers programme. This is an addition to the existing Oman Air mobile app and comes packed with features to provide a more seamless travel experience for guests.
