New Oman Air and bmi codeshare agreement increases choice and convenience for passengers
Oman Air and bmi have announced a codeshare agreement that will allow Oman Air’s customers to book flights from Oman’s capital of Muscat to Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Belfast or Manchester, via London Heathrow. bmi’s customers will be able to book flights from any of the airline’s UK departure points through to Muscat.
The codeshare agreement will come into effect from 1st April 2011 and customers will be able to book flights through either Oman Air or bmi outlets.
Welcoming the agreement, Oman Air’s Chief Executive Officer, Peter Hill, says:
“We are delighted to be joining with bmi to offer customers even greater choice, value and convenience. Both Oman Air and bmi offer outstanding service and this codeshare partnership will not only extend the range of options open to each airline’s customers, but will also encourage visitors to both Oman and the UK and promote tourism between the two countries.
“Visitors to the UK will now be able to combine Oman Air’s legendary hospitality between Muscat and London with bmi’s excellent service and range of final destinations. Customers flying to Oman from the UK will be able to choose the most convenient airport for their departure and enjoy their flight with bmi, secure in the knowledge that their welcome to the Sultanate will start as soon as they board the aircraft.”
Using luxurious new Airbus A330 operate on the route, Oman Air is the only airline to fly non-stop from the UK to Oman, departing Heathrow Terminal Three.
Joerg Hennemann, bmi Chief Commercial Officer, comments:
“bmi customers enjoy extensive connectivity at Heathrow with our many partner airlines to destinations around the globe. Our new codeshare with Oman Air further extends our global reach and will enable seamless and convenient travel connections for customers of both airlines between the Sultanate and key regional cities of the UK.”
The announcement of Oman Air’s codeshare agreement with bmi follows a year in which the national airline of the Sultanate of Oman was transformed from regional airline to luxury international carrier. New aircraft, spacious and opulently-appointed cabins, state-of-the-art in-flight entertainment and the world’s first in-flight mobile phone and wi-fi connectivity package are complemented by a rapidly-expanding network of over 40 exciting destinations worldwide. Customer feedback has been overwhelmingly positive and the changes have resulted in an 11% increase in load factors, a 38% increase in the number of passengers carried and a 40% increase in revenues by year-end 2010.
