Oman Air and Malaysia Airlines have entered into a code-share partnership that allows passengers more flight options and destinations. Oman Air currently offers four weekly flights between Muscat and Kuala Lumpur. With this new partnership, Oman Air’s passengers will be able to connect to six new destinations, namely, Langkawi, Kota Kinabalu, Penang, Kuching, Singapore and Hong Kong.
This partnership also means that the two airlines will collaborate on frequent flier programmes, ground handling, customer support, cargo and airport lounge access.
Oman Air is the national airline of the Sultanate of Oman. It is based in Muscat, a key traffic hub in the Middle East. The airline is renowned for its mobile and wireless connectivity across all classes on board its Airbus A330 aircraft. Besides servicing major Gulf destinations, Oman Air also operates direct flights from Muscat to London, Frankfurt, Munich, Paris, Bangkok, Cairo and Mumbai.
Malaysia Airlines is the national carrier of Malaysia, flying to about 80 destinations worldwide. It is one of only six airlines worldwide to be accredited as a “5-Star Airline” by Skytrax. It has also received the “World’s Best Cabin Staff” award from Skytrax on six occasions.
