Ooredoo has launched a promotion to enable prepaid users visiting this year’s Salalah Tourism Festival to share more of their holiday with friends and family. The Ooredoo Visitor Line will provide residents and tourists to the Sultanate with cost efficient, convenient, and reliable services during the khareef season, the autumn monsoon season which ends in September. Prepaid users signing up to the new Visitor Line will also get the opportunity to take advantage of Ooredoo’s ‘More’ packages to give them great value during their stay.

The offer will give tourists in Oman everything they need to stay connected with 1GB of data, 60 minutes talk time, and 60 local and international SMSes. Customers can enjoy instant access to apps such as Snapchat, Whatsapp and Instagram. Tourists can also benefit from all other existing prepaid offers, including More Internet, More International and More Credit, to give them extra value on data, call minutes or credit.

Feras Al Shaikh, Director of Consumer Sales at Ooredoo said: “With more than 1.8 million visitors from all over the world expected to travel to Salalah this year, Ooredoo decided to take the initiative and introduce an offer tailored to meeting and satisfying their needs. Keeping the Sultanate’s guests in touch with loved ones was our aspiration, which was designed to provide users with maximum comfort and convenience during their stay. This is our way of welcoming them to khareef and Oman.”

“Providing our customers with the highest levels of connectivity is what our More products are all about; delivering a competitive package exceptional service with unrivalled performance and reliability. This promotion will inspire users to talk more, connect more, and share more with family and friends no matter where they are in the world” said Feras.

As the main sponsor of the Salalah Tourism Festival, Ooredoo has constructed a stand at the festival grounds that will enable it to service twice the amount of customers from last year. Ooredoo has also deployed additional 2G, 3G+ and 4G sites in preparation for khareef.
