Qatar Airways continues to expand its partnership portfolio by signing a codeshare agreement with Oman Air.
The deal would allow passengers flexibility and more choice in flights and would boost connectivity. The agreement is expected to further strengthen the strategic cooperation between the two airlines which began in 2000. The other destinations will be revealed in due time in 2021.
Qatar Airways Group chief executive, Akbar Al Baker, said: “We are pleased to further expand our code-share cooperation with Oman Air, one of the leading airlines in the Gulf region. Now more than ever, it is important to strengthen strategic partnerships across the industry to optimize our operations and provide seamless connectivity to hundreds of destinations across the globe for our passengers. Since 2000, both airlines have seen the benefits that commercial cooperation has brought, providing our passengers with unrivaled service and more flexibility to travel when they want. I look forward to further strengthening our commercial cooperation with Oman Air to provide even more benefits to our customers.”
The code-share agreement significantly expands options for Omar Air passengers from 3 destinations to 65 with the Qatar Airways network, which includes Africa, the Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe, India, and the Middle East. In plans to further strengthen the partnership, both airlines aim to explore joint commercial and operational initiatives as well.
Oman Air chief executive, Abdulaziz Al Raisi, said: “We are delighted to expand our commercial cooperation with Qatar Airways, which will streamline flying for leisure travelers from around the world to enjoy Oman’s culture, scenic beauty, and hospitality, and facilitate travel for those who visit the sultanate of Oman for abundant, fast-growing business opportunities across a diverse range of sectors.
“The expansion of our code-share agreement is just the first step, and we look forward to working with Qatar Airways to further strengthen our strategic partnership to enhance the business and leisure travel experience for our customers in Oman and throughout the world.”
