Oman Air Commercial Cargo Unit has unveiled a mobile application catering to all Oman Air customers, including shipping companies and agents. The app, made in collaboration with Quantum ID Technologies, makers of the ‘SmartKargo’ platform – a solution provider for Oman Air’s cargo system, was launched in January of 2019 at the annual event of Oman Air Cargo.
Held in Muscat at the pilot station Oman (home market), the event also awarded its loyal customers and cargo clients with rewards, apart from launching the Cargo app.
Oman Air Cargo Application
The Sultanate has been encouraging digital transformation and Oman Air Cargo Unit is spearheading this agenda by the introduction of its application, which will provide 100% services to digital customers. Available on both the ‘Apple IOS App Store’ and ‘Android – play store’, the application will also help implement a ‘SmartKargo’ cloud management system. The mobile app will be released in phases across the market, within the year.

Statement from Oman Air Officials
Paul Starrs, Chief Commercial Officer at Oman Air said, “We are happy to announce the successful launch of our Cargo Application that provides easy access and excellent functionalities for our clients and freighters. We are committed to continuing leveraging the latest technologies and innovations to digitally enhance our business and provide the best possible solutions for our clients. We have ambitious plans to grow our Cargo business and remain competitive and our collaboration with ‘SmartKargo’ allows us to do so with state-of-the-art technology that is fast to deploy and easy-to-use”.
Mohammed Al Musafir, SVP – Commercial Cargo, Oman Air added-“Oman Air Cargo App has been very well received by our clients and shippers. We are thrilled to bring to the market this pioneering mobile App that allows our clients to access our schedules, capacity, get a quote and execute real bookings, in addition to offering various other useful unique features. There are many Cargo Mobile Apps out in the market but while they provide information, they do not allow bookings. SmartKargo technology is the first platform to provide this enhanced Customer Experience. Additionally, the SmartKargo platform is 100% cloud-base, operating on the scalable and robust Microsoft Azure infrastructure platform.”, added Mohammed Al Musafir, SVP at Commercial Cargo, Oman Air.
