Oman Air, the national airline of Oman, continues to strengthen its strategic codeshare partnership agreements to maximize its post-pandemic growth trajectory. 

In recent years, Oman Air has created a healthy network throughout the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent, as well as several cities in Europe, South Asia and Africa. The airline group is focused on growing additional connectivity to North and South America and Australia through strategic codeshares with its 18 partner airlines.

These include Ethiopian Airlines, Etihad Airways, Garuda Indonesia, Gulf Air, Royal Dutch Airlines KLM, Kenya Airways, Kuwait Airways, Lufthansa, Malaysia Airlines, SalamAir, Bangkok Airways, Qatar Airways, Royal Jordanian Airlines, Saudia, Thai Airways, Turkish Airlines, Sri Lankan Airlines, and Egyptair.

“Providing access to more destinations underpins our business operations and growth strategy as we gradually emerge from the global pandemic and look for new ways to offer our valued guests greater travel convenience and connectivity. Together with our codeshare partners, we continue to grow our network reach out of Muscat while offering reciprocal connectivity for passengers flying to the Sultanate of Oman. Strategic codeshare agreements make sense at a time when airlines around the world are facing tremendous challenges, and Oman Air understands that now, more than ever, seamless connectivity is a deciding factor for passengers when it comes to booking.”

Qatar Airways remains Oman Air’s biggest codeshare partner. Last year, Oman Air and Qatar Airways announced greater cooperation that would enable both airlines to expand commercial operations, boost connectivity and enhance travel options. 

In November, both airlines announced a reciprocal loyalty partnership whereby members of Oman Air Sindbad Program and Qatar Airways Privilege Club can earn and redeem miles for travel on both airlines between Muscat and Doha in either direction.
