Omani Travel and Tourism Bureau to represent Thai Air Asia in Oman

Muscat, Sultanate of Oman - 25 April 2016.

Omani Travel and Tourism Bureau (OTTB), one of the flagship companies of Suhail Bahwan Group, will be exclusively representing Thai Air Asia X (TAAX) - a fast growing airline- in Oman. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to this effect was signed recently between Ms. Amal Suhail Bahwan, Vice Chairperson of Suhail Bahwan Group and Mr. Nadda Buranasiri, CEO of Thai AirAsia X.

OTTB will be promoting TAAX's Muscat - Bangkok - Muscat route that will start operating from 28 June, with three weekly direct, non-stop flights on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. OTTB has opened an exclusive sales centre for TAAX at the CBD area in Muscat.

Ms. Amal Bahwan said, "Thailand is one of the favourite countries for Oman residents as a tourist destination, for medical treatment or for business. Similarly, we are witnessing an increasing number of travellers from Thailand visiting Oman. Now with direct non-stop flights between Muscat-Bangkok at affordable fare, more people from Thailand can visit and enjoy the natural beauty of Oman.

She added, "The new route also fits in with our government's efforts to promote Oman as a loved tourism destination. With over 40 years of experience in the travel business in Oman, OTTB is well placed to provide a comprehensive service to tourists to enjoy the legendary Omani hospitality and the natural beauty of Oman."

The direct flight from Muscat to Bangkok also offers excellent onward connections for people travelling beyond Bangkok to places such as Phuket, Krabi, Hat Yai, Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Khon Kaen and Surat Thani as well as to other international destinations such as Singapore, Yangon, Siem Reap, Ho Chi Minh City, Chongqing, Macau and Tokyo.

The airline will use an Airbus A330-300s on both routes, offering 12 premium flat-bed business class seats and 365 economy class seats.
