Muscat – Omantel, the leading provider of integrated telecommunication and technology solutions in the Sultanate of Oman, has partnered with Salam Air to provide tourist SIM cards to tourists travelling on the airline’s international and domestic flights.
Salam Air’s unique flight coverage offers a different demographic and target area that is of a huge benefit to Omantel. This stems from being one of Oman’s national flight carrier that reaches countries and cities constantly on demand.
The one-year partnership, which aligns with Omantel’s digital transformation strategy, is focused on providing a hassle-free SIM connectivity through the Omantel application. Hence, it contributes to enhancing the travel experience for visitors, through allowing them to experience the widest 5G network in town and benefit from the unique services it offers.
Omantel’s CCO, Eng Aladdin Baitfadhil, said, “We are glad about our partnership with Salam Air as it will enable us to expand our customer base by tapping the right target audience. Providing tourist SIM cards during inbound flights will offer the visitors seamless connectivity even before setting foot on land, sparing them time and effort upon arrival.”
Salam Air’s CEO, Captain Mohamed Ahmed, said, “Salam Air is always looking out for partnerships that will boost tourism in our beautiful country. We share Omantel’s passion for providing easy connectivity solutions, especially for visitors who find a trouble-free communication vital for making their stay comfortable. Oman is a constant hub for tourists throughout a year, in addition to the travellers who stop by Oman for transit flights throughout the year. These tourist SIM cards will make life a lot easier for them.”
Being proactive is a key element in constant growth, and as the telecom sector is constantly evolving, alternative smart methods must be adopted to fulfill such growth. With the partnership, passengers will be able to check their bookings, order taxis, make hotel arrangements, and iron out many hassles even before picking up their luggage.
