Celebrate 44th National Day with free national calls all day from Ooredoo

Muscat, Oman

In celebration of the 44th National Day, Ooredoo is giving customers free national calls all day on 18 November. The gesture reflects one of Ooredoo’s core values of ‘caring’ – to give back to community and show gratitude Oman and to His Majesty, Sultan Qaboos bin Said, for a truly inspiring 44 years of reign.

The free calls will be available from 12am to 11:59pm on 18 November and to make free national calls customers simply need to send an SMS with #OurOman to 80144.  Customers will be able to activate the offer and opt in on 17th, but the offer will be effective from 18th.

Greg Young, CEO of Ooredoo in Oman said: “Everybody in the Ooredoo family wishes the nation a very happy National Day. This is our gift back to all Ooredoo customers to not only say ‘thank you’ but also to share the excitement of the day with them. We want to bring together families, friends and colleagues and celebrate together His Majesty’s inspirational 44 years.”
