The national carrier of Oman was presented with the Best Business Class Seat award at a ceremony attended by more than 50 airlines and held at the Paris Air Show.The awards are based on the views of nearly 20 million air passengers, who were surveyed by Skytrax over the last year.Oman Air’s CEO, Peter Hill, commented: “Our Business Class seat is regularly mistaken for First Class. It offers unparalleled levels of space, comfort and amenity and has proved extremely popular with our customers.”Competition at the World Airline Awards for the title of ‘Best Business Class Seat’ is fierce and it is enormously satisfying to know that air travellers regard our seat as the best in the world.”Oman Air’s Business Class seat offers an 82-inch pitch, direct aisle access for every passenger and converts to a 77-inch long fully lie-flat bed.
