Oman Air and Malaysia Airlines have entered a code-share partnership opening up more international destinations to their customers.
Oman Air’s passengers who currently enjoy direct flights to Kuala Lumpur will now be connected to more destinations in Malaysia, China and Australia.
The new destinations now open for Oman Air guests 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 code share.
Malaysia Airlines passengers will enjoy non-stop, direct flights from Kuala Lumpur to Muscat.
Oman Air deputy chief executive, Abdulrahman Al Busaidy, said: “We are very happy with this remarkable code-share agreement which offers guests of Oman Air a greater choice of destinations.
“Apart from Oman Air guests benefiting from the added destinations through this code-share, it will also present them the opportunity to experience the exemplary services of Malaysia Airlines.
“We are equally sure this opportunity will be welcomed by the discerning guests of Malaysian Airlines; encouraging them to experience the unparalleled services of Oman Air and visit Oman and other unique destinations in Oman Air’s network.”
The partnership will also pave the way for closer co-operation between the two airlines on a range of other joint initiatives, including collaboration on frequent flyer programmes, ground handling, customer support, cargo and airport lounge access.
