Oman Air seeks more codeshare partnerships to fuel growth

Oman Air is seeking to expand its range of codeshare agreements as it grows its network of destinations and fleet of aircraft.

Having most recently added codeshare deals with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and Garuda Indonesia to its offering, the airline says it is offering greater choice and convenience for customers.

The Gulf airline said: “Codeshare agreements bring clear benefits for Oman Air’s customers and those of its partners.

“They are an effective way of expanding the range of choices offered by Oman Air, and of introducing the Oman Air passenger experience to many more air travellers.

“The codeshares have been warmly welcomed by Oman Air’s customers, who have also appreciated the care taken by Oman Air to partner with airlines which share its commitment to quality and service.

“Including codeshare destinations, Oman Air now offers 56 exciting global destinations.

“And as the expansion programme continues, Oman Air will not only be unveiling more of its own destinations, but will also be looking to develop further codeshare agreements.”

The national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman is increasing the size of its fleet and will operate 25 wide-body and 45 narrow-body aircraft by 2020.

It is also launching new services to destinations with Manila, Jakarta, Goa and Singapore the most recent.

Oman Air currently operates nine codeshare partnerships, which cover destinations in the Middle East, South and South East Asia, Africa and Europe.

Existing partnerships it operates are with fellow Gulf carrier Emirates Airlines and Qatar Airways as well as Ethiopian Airlines and Royal Jordanian.

Istanbul has been added to Oman Air’s network as a result of a codeshare partnership with Turkish Airlines and Sri Lankan Airlines’ customers can now book to fly on Oman Air’s aircraft between Colombo and Zurich via Muscat.

Finally Oman has a codeshare agreement with Malaysia Airlines for services between Muscat and Langkawi, Kota Kinabalu, Penang, Kuching, Bangkok, Singapore and Hong Kong via Kuala Lumpur.
