A new agreement between Oman Air and Saudi Arabian Airlines allows flyers to travel between Muscat and Riyadh, Dammam, Jeddah or Medina.
The newly signed codeshare agreement provides flights from Muscat to the four destinations in Saudi Arabia beginning June 29.
Oman Air utilizes Boeing 737s on services to Riyadh, Dammam and Medina, and offers flights on the B737s, Airbus 300s, and Boeing 787 Dreamliners to those traveling to Jeddah. The airline offers double-daily flights between Muscat and Jeddah as well as between Muscat and Riyadh. Up to two flights each day are provided between Muscat and Dammam with flights each day between Muscat and Medina.
Saudi Arabian Airlines operates the Airbus 320 on constant flights from Riyadh, Jeddah, and Medina to Muscat each week.
“I am delighted to announce that Oman Air and Saudi Arabian Airlines have signed a codeshare agreement which covers flights between Muscat, the capital of the Sultanate of Oman, and four destinations in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” Aboudy Nasser, senior vice president at Oman Air, said. “This new partnership will deliver even greater choice and convenience for customers of both airlines. Not only can tickets be simply booked via travel agents, www.omanair.com or www.saudiairlines.com, but customers of both airline can now access two complementary networks of exciting international destinations. Furthermore, Saudi Arabian Airlines shares Oman Air’s commitment to the highest standards of hospitality, service and onboard product, ensuring a consistently enjoyable passenger experience for all. It is a pleasure to be working alongside Saudi Arabian Airlines and we look forward to a long and prosperous partnership.”
Part of Oman Air’s strategic plan is to offer more flight
choices, convenience and easy connections to all customers. This codeshare,
along with a number of others with different reputable airlines, allows Oman
Air to expand its flights to roughly 75 destinations by 2020. The various
agreements between Oman Air and different airlines allows the company’s
frequent flyers to travel to a number of destinations that may not otherwise be
available, including Europe, Africa, Australia and Asia.
