In a statement, the airline said that a video clip posted by a citizen aimed at damaging the airline has encouraged further similar activities that affect the national carrier.
A fake Twitter account has been set up with the intention of damaging the image and reputation of the airline by responding offensively to Oman Air’s respected guests. “Any information or communication coming from the account, @omanairline, is unauthorised and should be disregarded.
“Followers and valued guests have been informed that @omanair is the airline’s only official account.
“Government authorities have been informed about the impostor and firm legal action will be taken against the concerned individuals in accordance with the law,” Oman Air said in a statement.
Any attempt intended to damage the reputation of the airline will be taken further in line with the jurisdiction of Oman.
Oman Air is contributing over RO900mn to the nation’s economy by creating business and tourism opportunities.
This year, over 10mn guests will travel onboard Oman Air.
