Muscat: Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman, continues its expansion across Europe by adding 5 popular cities to its collection of codeshare destinations with Lufthansa, Europe’s largest airline.

A codeshare is a common business arrangement in the aviation industry, in which two or more airlines market the same flight under their own name and flight number. Typically, a flight is operated by one airline while seats are sold for the flight by all cooperating airlines.

Under the expanded agreement, with the first flights set to depart on 27 October, guests can travel on Oman Air flights from Muscat to Munich and Frankfurt and seamlessly connect to Amsterdam, Dublin, Helsinki, Oslo and Warsaw. Tickets to these popular hubs of commerce, culture and history are now available from omanair.com, travel agents and all other outlets.

Abdulaziz Al Raisi, CEO, Oman Air said: “Strategic codeshares are a crucial way for us to broaden customer choice and make it easier for business and leisure travellers to reach the Sultanate and beyond. Our relationship with Lufthansa is very important for Oman Air, and we are delighted to offer our valued guests even better connectivity in Europe. We are sure the guests will find the award-winning services of Oman Air and the legacy services of Lufthansa to be a truly rewarding experience”.



The new agreement, which increases the number of codeshare destinations with Lufthansa to 12, reflects Oman Air’s commitment to connect the Sultanate – a unique, fast-growing destination for commerce and leisure travel – with the world.

Additional codeshare flights between the two airlines, first established in 2017, serve Brussels, Vienna, Prague, Madrid and Barcelona. Lufthansa also codeshares with Oman Air on its round-trip flights from Muscat to Frankfurt and Munich.



Oman Air now serves 24 European destinations, with non-stop flights to 10 cities and partnerships connecting guests with 14 additional destinations on the continent.
