Airlines Oman Air and Qatar Airways expand strategic cooperation
Oman Air and Qatar Airways have taken the next step in their strategic partnership with an extended codeshare agreement.
The carriers Oman Air and Qatar Airways have announced that the strategic cooperation will be extended through a new codeshare agreement. This latest deal sees the codeshare partnership covering more than 80 destinations on Qatar Airways´ network.
Also, with the new agreement the travel experience for passengers will become more convenient and seamless, the airlines stated. Back in December 2020, both airlines announced the initial agreement to significantly strengthen the strategic cooperation.
Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “Despite the challenges of the pandemic, we have remained committed to forging and expanding our global network of partners to provide more seamless and flexible travel options for our millions of passengers. Having first established commercial cooperation with Oman Air over 20 years ago, we look forward to continuing to build upon our strong and historic partnership and offering our customers in Oman and across the globe even more benefits.”
Oman Air Chief Executive Officer Mr. Abdulaziz Al Raisi, added: “Oman Air’s expanding partnership with Qatar Airways underscores the commitment of both airlines to provide their guests with more flights, more choice of destinations, and greater flexibility throughout their travels with us. For Oman Air and many airlines around the world, the key to post-pandemic recovery lies in strategic collaborations with industry partners and in identifying innovative route expansion opportunities as we navigate a constantly changing environment.”
Both executives expressed their appreciation for each other and see this partnership as a significant part in strengthening the connection between the gulf airlines. The airlines seek to grow their network together in the future.
With this latest partnership, Oman Air passengers will be able to enjoy seamless connections via Doha International Airport to 16 new routes, including Antalya, Istanbul, Berlin, Munich, St. Petersburg, Atlanta or Johannesburg. For these routes, Oman Air will place its airline code on those Qatar Airways flights.
Both Oman Air and Qatar Airways are leading carriers in the gulf region. Both airlines have well established networks with passenger and freight services to destinations around the world. To strengthen each other´s networks is not only a decision for the passengers but also a financial decision.
