ISO Travel Solutions to deliver Digital Travel Distribution Platform for the National Travel Operator of Oman, VISITOMAN.OM
ISO Travel Solutions GmbH has been chosen by the National Travel Operator of the Sultanate of Oman to provide the new digital travel distribution platform, with a core reservation system and a website to make the tourism products of Oman available and bookable for Travel Trade partners.
The Sultanate of Oman created the National Travel Operator in 2018 with the objective of unlocking Oman’s touristic potential and for the purpose of enhancing the connectivity and increasing the quality of the Omani travel products and services. They conducted a world-wide system tender and signed a contract to use ISO Travel Solutions as future technology provider for their future digital travel distribution platform “VisitOman.om”.
The aim of the project is to provide B2B government authorized digitally native online booking and information gateway for Oman’s Travel Trade sector which makes all tourism products in Oman bookable online with instant confirmation. This will include hotels, excursions, dining, etc. as well as flights with various airlines. The products can be booked as components or as individual packages, enabling the trade partner to create and book dream vacations in Oman.
ISO provides a tailor-made internet booking engine for B2B usage on the visitoman.om website, the core reservation system Pacific, the online connections to all external suppliers and the complete integration into the IT landscape of the National Travel Operator VisitOman.om.
“The launch of the VisitOman.om platform is an important step for the Sultanate to achieve its vision by investing in the tourism sector's value chain, whilst the government is implementing and activating the tourism distribution strategy that aims to increase inbound tourism to the Sultanate from various major regional and international markets. This platform will enhance the contribution of local and international partners through various investment and business opportunities and will work to strengthen strategic tourism and commercial partnerships with the service providers who will benefit from the promising opportunities that the platform will provide.”
