Oman Air, Malaysia Air­lines sign code­share pact to boost ser­vices

Muscat Daily - - NATION -

Mus­cat - Oman Air and Malaysia Air­lines have en­tered a code­share part­ner­ship open­ing up more in­ter­na­tional des­ti­na­tions to their cus­tomers, ef­fec­tive im­me­di­ately.

Oman Air’s pas­sen­gers who cur­rently en­joy di­rect flights to Kuala Lumpur will now be con­nected to more des­ti­na­tions in Malaysia, China and Aus­tralia, a press re­lease stated.

The new des­ti­na­tions now open for Oman Air trav­ellers are Sin­ga­pore, Hanoi, Hong Kong, Dar­win, Mel­bourne, Auck­land, Phuket, Langkawi, Penang, Kota Bharu, Jo­hor Bharu, Kuan­tan and Miri. Ad­di­tion­ally, the ex­ist­ing des­ti­na­tions of Oman Air, namely, Jakarta and Guangzhou will also be con­nected through this code­share.

Malaysia Air­lines pas­sen­gers will en­joy non-stop, di­rect flights from Kuala Lumpur to Mus­cat.

Ab­dul­rah­man al Bu­saidy, deputy CEO and chief com­mer­cial of­fi­cer, Oman Air, said, “We are very happy with this re­mark­able code­share agree­ment which of­fers guests of Oman Air a greater choice of des­ti­na­tions. Apart from Oman Air guests ben­e­fit­ing from the added des­ti­na­tions through this code­share, it will also present them the op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence the ex- em­plary ser­vices of Malaysia Air­lines. We are equally sure this op­por­tu­nity will be wel­comed by the dis­cern­ing guests of Malaysia Air­lines, en­cour­ag­ing them to ex­pe­ri­ence the un­par­al­leled ser­vices of Oman Air and visit Oman and other unique des­ti­na­tions in Oman Air’s net­work.”

This part­ner­ship will also pave the way for closer co-op­er­a­tion be­tween the two air­lines on a range of ini­tia­tives, in­clud­ing col­lab­o­ra­tion on fre­quent flyer pro­grammes, ground han­dling, cus­tomer sup­port, cargo and air­port lounge ac­cess.

Oman Air of­fers 14 weekly flights be­tween Mus­cat and Kuala Lumpur, op­er­at­ing on the air­line’s A330-200 air­craft.
