OMAN AIR, LUFTHANSA TIE-UP TO CONNECT 59 DESTINATIONS ACROSS EUROPE, NORTH AMERICA

MUSCAT, Oman, Mar 28 (NNN-ONA) – Oman Air is continuing its expansion across Europe and North America, by signing a new partnership agreement with Lufthansa. Under the new agreement, guests on Oman Air can connect to 59 destinations across Europe and North America, from Lufthansa’s Frankfurt and Munich hubs, on an interline basis, stated a press release.

At the same time, Lufthansa will code-share with Oman Air, on Oman Air-operated services, from both Frankfurt and Munich to Muscat, allowing guests to experience the hospitality and outstanding service of Oman Air. In order to provide Oman Air’s guests with a seamless travel experience, whilst connecting in Frankfurt and Munich, Oman Air will be moving terminals in Frankfurt to the Lufthansa operated terminals in Frankfurt terminal 1 and Munich terminal 2.

Oman Air will also be re-timing its current services to Frankfurt, to arrive and depart Frankfurt during the morning, to facilitate connections in Frankfurt to Europe and North America, in under three hours. Furthermore, as a commitment to the new opportunities open to Oman Air’s guests with this partnership, Oman Air will be operating its brand new Boeing Dreamliner 787-9, between Muscat and Frankfurt.

Paul Gregorowitsch, chief executive officer, Oman Air said, Strategic code-shares are a crucial way for us to broaden customer choice. Our relationship with Lufthansa is a very important development for Oman Air, allowing us to offer even better connectivity in Europe and the North Atlantic, and we are delighted to be operating one of the newest additions to the fleet, the Boeing Dreamliner, on the Muscat to Frankfurt route.

This latest agreement, in addition to the new routes already announced in 2017, demonstrates Oman Air’s unwavering progress to becoming a successful, sustainable company of the highest quality: ‘To Become the Best.’
