Oman Air reflects on successful air cargo Europe 2023

Oman Air Cargo wrapped up its highly successful participation in air cargo Europe 2023, held in Munich. A who’s who of global air cargo players, the four-day trade fair drew in more than 75,000 visitors from over 120 countries. For Oman Air, it marked another important milestone in its efforts to drive the growth of Oman’s logistics industry, an integral part of Oman’s 2040 Vision for economic development. During the event, the airline showcased its enhanced cargo solutions and expertise in handling specialised goods, particularly fresh, valuables, pharmaceuticals, and live animals, alongside its newest products, Under 100 and Express.

“It was a busy but inspiring event, and we were delighted to conduct many pivotal meetings with esteemed industry partners and valuable customers in our target markets. We also showcased our exceptional range of products, while elevating the profile of Oman Air’s network and broadening our visibility,” Jaffar Al Lawati, Vice President Commercial Cargo, said.

Above all, the event underscored the critical role of the logistics industry in propelling global advancement and ensuring the seamless exchange of goods. This is something that is reflected in the expansion of our operations, our investments in new products and technologies, and our commitment meeting our customers’ ever-evolving needs.”

Oman Air Cargo has celebrated a string of notable milestones recently, having recorded a 36% increase in cargo volumes and 44% increase in revenue between 2021 and 2022, as well as adding several new destinations and introducing its innovative ‘Cargo-in-Cabin’ service to Europe, the Far East and Indian Subcontinent. Earlier this year, the carrier announced further investments in its technology and capabilities. A new Revenue Management System is set to launch later this year, in addition to a new freighter – a B737-800BCF with a cargo capacity of 21,000 kgs – that will serve its expanding network.

With its strategic location at the crossroads of Africa, Asia and the Middle East, state-of-the-art infrastructure at its hub, Muscat International Airport, as well as global certifications for handling and storage, Oman Air Cargo continues to cement itself as a leading air cargo carrier in the region and beyond.
