Muscat: National carrier, Oman Air has entered into partnership with Lufthansa to provide guests with a seamless travel experience to 59 destinations across Europe and North America.

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.

At the same time, Lufthansa will codeshare with Oman Air on Oman Air operated services from both Frankfurt and Munich to Muscat, allowing their guests to experience the 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,” it said on Monday.

“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,” it added.

Chief Executive Officer of Oman Air, Paul Gregorowitsch, commented: “Strategic codeshares 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 newest additions to the fleet, the Boeing Dreamliner on the Muscat to Frankfurt route.”
