Oman Air employees went on strike last Sunday to demand higher salaries, it has been reported.

Approximately 200 members of staff were gathered at the national carrier’s headquarters for two hours, with threats that their protests would continue the following day.

"The CEO wanted 48 hours to think about it but the staff said there will be a total strike tomorrow if they don't get a clear answer by then," a company's human resources official, who had negotiated with protesters, told Reuters, without giving details of the pay demands.

Oman Air, fully owned by the government, offers flights to Asian destinations such as Bangkok and Bangladesh's Chittagong, as well as European cities including Frankfurt and Paris.
