Posted 30 April 2019 · Add Comment

Gulf Air and Oman Air have expanded their existing codeshare agreement allowing passengers to benefit from the outstanding products and services offered by the two airlines. This will extend travel opportunities to fly beyond Muscat and Bahrain effective from the upcoming summer schedule.

 

Gulf Air will place its ‘GF’ code on Oman Air flights from Muscat to Salalah and Khasab in Oman, Nairobi in Kenya, Zanzibar in Tanzania, Goa and Lucknow in India, Kathmandu in Nepal and Jakarta in Indonesia. On the other hand, the extended codeshare agreement will see Oman Air place its ‘WY’ code on Gulf Air flights from Bahrain to Tbilisi in Georgia, Baku in Azerbaijan, Gassim in Saudi Arabia and Beirut in Lebanon.

Gulf Air’s chief executive officer Mr. Krešimir Kučko said: “Gulf Air and Oman Air has been long-time partners and now we are celebrating many years of close partnership with an extension to what is already one of our strongest codeshare collaborations. The existing codeshare on the Bahrain-Muscat route has been receiving good feedback over the years allowing passengers to choose from a variety of frequencies every day. Now Gulf Air passengers can explore more destinations beyond Muscat as they fly on Oman Air to different destinations in Oman, Africa, India and the Far East”.

Abdulaziz Al Raisi, chief executive officer of Oman Air said: “Oman Air is very happy with the extension of this codeshare agreement with Gulf Air, which is a strategic and important partner for Oman Air. Through this code share, Oman Air offers its guests the opportunity to extend their travel from Bahrain to Tbilisi, Baku, Gassim and Beirut.  The Gulf Air guests in return can travel to Oman Air’s destinations of Salalah, Khasab, Nairobi, Zanzibar, Goa, Lucknow, Kathmandu and Jakarta. We are sure the guests will find the award-winning services of Oman Air and the legacy services of Gulf Air a truly rewarding experience. “
