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.”
