Oman-based leading integrated telecommunications services provider, Omantel has signed an agreement with the region’s leading Oman Taxi chain, OTaxi in order to provide Tourist SIM Cards.

Under the agreement, the Tourist SIM Cards will be distributed through 2,500 cab drivers. The partnership stems from a mutual interest between the two companies to attract more customers and enrich their experience.

According to the statement, “Tourists in an OTaxi ride can now have one less stop on their route. It is no longer needed for them to stop at an outlet or an authorized reseller to get Omantel’s sim card as they can conveniently get their Tourist SIM Card from OTaxi cab drivers during their ride.”

Tourist SIM Card from Omantel has been created to offer visitors to the Sultanate of Oman a convenient experience.

Further, it brings together the necessary and most used services by tourists and visitors during short stays and is delivered at their fingertips.

Commenting on the agreement, Eng. Aladdin Bait Fadhil, Chief Commercial Officer at Omantel, said that, “We strive to enhance the experience through every touchpoint in the customer journey, and bringing services to customers’ fingertips has been of utmost interest to Omantel. As Tourist SIM Card has been designed for short stays, we felt that it would be necessary that these SIM cards are delivered fast and conveniently to the tourists and visitors to save them time and effort while they are in the Sultanate of Oman.”

“This cooperation with Omantel is the second of its kind as we have previously collaborated with the company to provide us with Virtual PBX for OTaxi, which had a significant impact on facilitating our operations. We trust that this agreement will be a success too, and it will add more convenience to our passengers who take OTaxi to tour the Sultanate of Oman,” commented Eng. Harith Khamis Al Maqbali, CEO of OTaxi.
