Oman Air announces winners of Amenity Kit Design Competition
The best of Oman's artists and designers have now been announced as winners of the Oman Air amenity kit competition.
Three winning designs have been selected, from the entries from local Omani designers; all three kits will be produced and will be available on Oman Air flights in 2017.
The design produced by Ahlam Hamad Al Mahrouqi obtained the first place, whereas Issa Saleh Al Sabagh’s design won the second place, and the design of Jokha Abdullah Al Barwani was awarded the third place.
Oman Air’s executive vice president - Products and Brand Development, Abdulaziz Al Raisi said: “We are the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman and as such our history and heritage is incredibly important to us. The amenity kits not only play an important part in the passenger experience but we also wanted them to showcase Omani craftsmanship and innovation. The three winning designs are not only innovative but also will be incredibly practical and are premium examples of Omani design. The design competition was seen as a way to extend this support to lesser known local designers.”
