Oman Air, the national airline for the Sultanate of Oman, is continuing its expansion across Europe and North America by signing a new partnership agreement with Lufthansa.
Under the new agreement starting 26th March 2017, guests on Oman Air can connect to 59 destinations across Europe and North America from Lufthansa’s Frankfurt and Munich hubs on an interline basis. At the same time, Lufthansa will codeshare on Oman Air operated services from both Frankfurt and Munich to Muscat, allowing their guests to experience the hospitality and outstanding service of Oman Air.
In order to provide Oman Air’s guests with a seamless travel experience whilst connecting in Frankfurt and Munich, the airline will be moving terminals in Frankfurt to the Lufthansa operated terminals in Frankfurt terminal 1 and Munich terminal 2.
The Muscat-based airline will also be re-timing its current services to Frankfurt to arrive and depart Frankfurt during the morning to facilitate connections in Frankfurt to Europe and North America in under three hours.
Furthermore, as a commitment to the new opportunities open to Oman Air’s guests with this partnership, Oman Air will be operating its brand new Boeing Dreamliner 787-9 between Muscat and Frankfurt.
Chief Executive Officer of Oman Air, Paul Gregorowitsch, said:
“Strategic codeshares are a crucial way for us to broaden customer choice. Our relationship with Lufthansa is a very important development for Oman Air allowing us to offer even better connectivity in Europe and the North Atlantic and we are delighted to be operating one of newest additions to the fleet, the Boeing Dreamliner on the Muscat to Frankfurt route.”
This latest agreement, in addition to the new routes already announced in 2017, demonstrates the Omani airline’s unwavering progress to becoming a successful, sustainable company.
