Oman Air conducts emergency response exercise

Posted 20 April 2017 · Add Comment

Oman Air has conducted what it says is a realistic emergency response exercise in Muscat recently to rehearse its emergency management programme and response functions.

A real-time scenario was then developed, including the steady provision of new issues and additional information, as often happens during an actual emergency. Observers have hailed it a major success. 

The drill involved teams from across the airline’s departments including media, marketing, IT, finance, HR, legal, commercial as well as the flight and ground operations teams.

The airline said in a statement: “Oman Air’s primary and over-riding consideration is the safety and well-being of its staff and customers. Exercises such as the one carried out have enabled the airline to retain its spotless safety record. Overall, this exercise has been a powerful learning experience that will only make the collective emergency response plans of the airline even stronger. The positive outcomes from this exercise are the result of the commitment and enthusiasm offered by all the staff involved.

“Oman Air is a rapidly growing, dynamic airline and the continual training and drilling of staff is part of the internal efforts by the Oman Air Response Team to ensure that all staff are trained to the highest industry standards to ensure they can be ready for any unforeseen circumstances.”
