We are extremely proud to be listed in the company of the more than 350 operators that have achieved recognition through the registry,” said Jeff Crippen, Omni’s President and CEO. “All of the employees at Omni put in extraordinary effort every day to ensure that we provide each of our customers with that extra level of safety and service that is represented by IATA’s recognition today.”
