Times of Oman - - OMAN - Times News Ser­vice

MUS­CAT: Oman Air and Mus­cat Duty Free ( MDF) were awarded the ‘In-flight Re­tailer of the Year 2017’ award at the annual Fron­tier Awards held on Oc­to­ber 6 at Palm Beach in Cannes, France.

The Fron­tier Awards recog­nise best prac­tices, re­wards in­no­va­tion and cel­e­brate ex­cel­lence across the global travel retail in­dus­try. The award was one of the 17 pre­sented dur­ing the glit­ter­ing ceremony and cov­ered a wide range of cat­e­gories that recog­nised the best among duty free and travel retail in­dus­tries.

The Fron­tier Awards, which marked their 33rd year, are hailed as the ‘Os­cars’ of the in­dus­try. Oman Air and MDF’s ‘In-flight pro­gramme’ faced stiff com­pe­ti­tion from ma­jor in­ter­na­tional air­lines.

The Fron­tier Awards are judged in­de­pen­dently by some of the most in­flu­en­tial peo­ple in the in­dus­try and are con­sid­ered a pres­ti­gious hon­our not just for the win­ners, but also for the short-listed ones . Other no­table win­ners on the night were Dubai Duty Free (Air­port Re­tailer of the year) and Heathrow Air­port (Air­port Op­er­a­tor of the year).

Ab­du­laziz Al Raisi, act­ing chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer, Oman Air, com­mented, “At Oman Air, we work very hard with our part­ner Mus­cat Duty Free to ensure that we are pro­vid­ing our guests with the ab­so­lute best and this en­com­passes ev­ery de­tail of the on-board ex­pe­ri­ence, in­clud­ing the prod­ucts that we sell on our air­craft.

“This award, won amidst such stiff com­pe­ti­tion, proves that the prod­ucts and of­fers on board our In-flight duty free are ac­cepted widely by our guests for their qual­ity and value.”
