Oman Air staff in flash strike over training

Up to 60 Oman Air staff went on strike in Muscat Tuesday in a bid to force the carrier into providing training and promotions.

Omani employees said promises by airline officials that they would receive regular training and compensation had not been implemented.  

“We had discussions with the striking staff and heard their grievances related to compensation and promotions,” Philippe Georgiou, Oman Air’s chief officer for corporate affairs told the Oman Tribune.

The strike did not affect the airline’s operations, he added. “No flights were affected. We are operating as per the schedule.”
