Muscat: Oman Air has signed a global co-operation agreement with Sixt, a car rental company.
The agreement was signed by Oman Air’s Chief Executive Officer, Paul Gregorowitsch, and Senior Executive Vice President Sixt International, Regine Sixt, at a ceremony held at the International Tourism Fair (ITB) in Berlin.
It builds on Sixt’s partnership with Oman Air’s Sindbad loyalty programme, which began in 2009, and the cooperation has now been extended to include the airline’s entire service portfolio.
The agreement offers significant benefits to customers of both companies.
For example, customers can book their Sixt rental cars directly through www.omanair.com. Sindbad members will receive 500 bonus miles when they rent a car from Sixt, and booking the Sixt Limousine Service gives customers 1,000 bonus miles.
In addition, customers who rent their desired Sixt vehicle via Oman Air benefit from a best price guarantee and, depending on their Sindbad membership level, can receive up to 15 percent discount on every rental. Alternatively, they can opt for a free upgrade to the next higher class of vehicle.
Furthermore, Oman Air’s First and Business Class passengers can use the award-winning Sixt Limousine Service when travelling to or from Germany, Singapore, Switzerland and Thailand, as the price is already included in the ticket.
Paul Gregorowitsch welcomed the new agreement, saying: “The agreement that Oman Air has just signed with Sixt, offers excellent benefits for customers throughout our network. Car or limousine hire is an essential element of many people’s travel plans and we are delighted to be partnering with a company that shares Oman Air’s commitment to quality, convenience and customer care.
“Signing this agreement at ITB, the world’s largest travel fair, underlines the importance of this event for Oman Air. ITB offers ideal opportunities for creating new business relationships, strengthening these and confirming partnerships that deliver even greater value for our customers. This latest agreement with Sixt will be welcomed by First Class, Business Class and Economy Class travellers throughout our network.”
Regine Sixt added: “Sixt and Oman Air, the leading airline in the Middle East, have collaborated in a successful partnership for years. I am very pleased that we can now significantly expand this cooperation and thus offer our customers even greater added value in terms of comfort and flexibility. Together we will make our customers’ trips a special experience.”
