Oman Air is anticipated to become a member of oneworld later this year, marking a significant milestone for the alliance, according to Gerhard Girkinger, VP of Oneworld.
Oman Air + Oneworld offer
Flying with Oman Air as part of the oneworld alliance presents a wealth of benefits for frequent flyers, offering enhanced earning and redemption opportunities across all member airlines. Additionally, passengers can enjoy reciprocal status benefits aligned with Oman Air’s Sinbad loyalty program.
Sinbad membership comprises three tiers, with Sinbad Blue serving as the entry-level tier for new members. Sinbad Silver, akin to oneworld Ruby or oneworld Sapphire status, grants qualifying passengers access to a range of perks, including an increased baggage allowance, expedited check-in at business class counters, priority baggage handling, and access to Oman Air’s business class lounge before international flights.
For Sinbad Gold members, equivalent to Oneworld Sapphire or Oneworld Emerald status, additional privileges are extended. This tier offers guest privileges at the Oman Air Business Class lounge, along with a complimentary upgrade voucher from Economy to Business Class, enhancing the overall travel experience for elite members.
Operating from its primary hub at Muscat International Airport, Oman Air connects travelers to five major oneworld member airline hubs: Amman, Colombo, Doha, Kuala Lumpur, and London Heathrow. The airline already boasts partnerships with oneworld members such as Malaysia Airlines, Qatar Airways, Royal Jordanian, and SriLankan through codeshare agreements.
Oman Air’s extensive network spans across the Middle East, Africa, and Asia, with Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur emerging as key transit points for Australian travelers. As a new member of oneworld, Oman Air’s routes will seamlessly integrate into the alliance’s global network, offering travelers the flexibility to plan and book trips worldwide, whether utilizing cash fares or redeeming frequent flyer points for multi-city award bookings.
While perhaps not as familiar to Australian travelers, Oman Air boasts a fleet comprising more than 40 aircraft, featuring state-of-the-art amenities such as private suites in first class. Their fleet includes top-of-the-line aircraft like the Airbus A330 and Boeing 787.
Furthermore, Oman Air provides passengers with fully flat beds in their Dreamliner Business Class, a feature reminiscent of the renowned design found in Japan Airlines’ Sky Suite and Korean Air’s luxurious Prestige Class cabin.
