Oman Air has released a press statement regarding a video clip posted by a citizen aimed at damaging the airline.

The statement said: “A video clip posted by a citizen aimed at damaging Oman Air 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 Oman Air 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 imposter and firm legal action will be taken against the concerned individuals in accordance with the law.

“Any attempt intended to damage the reputation of the airline in an inappropriate way, will be taken further in line with the jurisdiction of the Sultanate of Oman.”
