As a forward-thinking airline, we have always held ourselves to the highest standards of continuous improvement, and this latest achievement formally recognises our commitment to the rigorous quality management that is an integral part of our operations—this is a momentous day for Oman Air."

The ‘Fresh’ certification confirms the effectiveness of the airline’s quality management system for perishables and underscores its commitment to improving internal processes in line with its Company Quality Policy and the highest international standards. Within the framework of CEIV Fresh, Oman Air further elevates its promise of customer excellence as it grows its cargo business to meet the time-sensitive requirements of global freight forwarders in areas of perishable goods.
