Muscat Daily - - FRONT PAGE -

Oman Air flight on the Mus­catBan­ga­lore route re­turned safely to its home base on Mon­day af­ter it ex­pe­ri­enced a tech­ni­cal glitch af­ter its take­off at 10.25am.

The flight (WY 283), a Boe­ing 737-800 air­craft, had 154 pas­sen­gers, three in­fants and six crew mem­bers on board. “Thanks to the pro­fes­sion­al­ism of the well trained crew, no fur­ther dis­com­fort was ex­pe­ri­enced by the guests on board,” the air­line said.

The guests and crew dis­em­barked smoothly.

All pas­sen­gers were ac­com­mo­dated on an­other air­craft with the same flight num­ber that took off at 3pm from Mus­cat. “Oman Air’s over-rid­ing pri­or­ity is to safe­guard the well-be­ing of all its cus­tomers and staff, and the air­line is proud of its un­blem­ished safety record. Oman Air pro­vides ex­ten­sive train­ing to its crew on how to ef­fec­tively man­age prob- lems when they arise, and en­sure pas­sen­ger safety.

“It also works closely with all the air­port au­thor­i­ties through­out its net­work. This in­ci­dent il­lus­trates the ef­fec­tive­ness of that train­ing and co-op­er­a­tion,” it said.

Oman Air thanked the staff at Mus­cat In­ter­na­tional Air­port, the ROP, Oman Air­ports Man­age­ment Com­pany and the Pub­lic Au­thor­ity for Civil Avi­a­tion for their co­op­er­a­tion and as­sis­tance.
