LONDON – In the last hour, the oneworld Alliance has announced the addition of Oman Air to its list of airlines in the multi-destination-based company.

The process will now begin of integrating the airline into the alliance, with this expected to be completed by 2024.

Executive Comments…

oneworld Governing Board Chairman and Qatar Airways Group Executive His Excellency Akbar Al Baker said: “Today marks a new milestone in oneworld, as our friends at Oman Air become a member-elect of our award-winning alliance.”

“Passengers of Oman Air will be offered a seamless travel journey, connecting them to more than 900 destinations across 170 countries.”

“As the Chairman of oneworld, we look forward to welcoming Oman Air into our alliance as they will bring great benefits, allowing passengers to discover not just a new member with an excellent reputation, but a beautiful country.”

oneworld CEO Rob Gurney said: “We are delighted that Oman Air has chosen oneworld as its global airline alliance partner.”

“With its network in Muscat and award-winning customer service, Oman Air will reinforce its position as the premier airline alliance for global travelers.”

“As the global travel industry continues to recover from the pandemic, the significant growth of oneworld in recent years demonstrates how important alliances and partnerships will continue to be”.

Continued Growth for oneworld…

oneworld continues to grow its portfolio of airlines entering the alliance in recent years.

The addition of Oman Air will be the third in the last three years.

This comes after Royal Air Maroc joined oneworld in April 2020, followed by Alaska Airlines in March 2021. From this, it remains clear that oneworld is wanting a high level of post-pandemic growth.

For Oman Air, their CEO Eng Abdulaziz Al Raisi believes this will be a defining moment for the airline:

“Oman Air’s admittance into oneworld represents a defining moment in our journey to provide passengers with greater travel options through our developing partnerships and alliances.”

“We’re delighted to be joining the world’s foremost airline alliance at a time when demand for travel is on the rise.”

“We look forward to welcoming oneworld members onboard Oman Air to experience the height of Omani hospitality and all that the Sultanate of Oman has to offer in terms of history, culture, and natural beauty.”

Clear Reasons…

Pre-oneworld, Oman Air offered significant connectivity, especially through operating to five specific destinations that fall under the remit of oneworld being:

  • Amman, Jordan
  • Colombo, Sri Lanka
  • Doha, Qatar
  • Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
  • London Heathrow, United Kingdom

As oneworld mentions, the airline “joining oneworld will pave the way for additional codeshare opportunities, further enhancing global connectivity across the alliance’s network.”

It remains clear that this is yet another beneficial and successful move for Oman Air to make, and this definitely reciprocates itself onto the airline side.

Oman Air is now going to have significant access to other markets that it hasn’t previously operated in, which is going to boost revenue possibilities going into the future.
