Gulf Air recently launched a new codeshare agreement with Oman Air, the national carrier of the sultanate of Oman, that sees the airlines' combined frequencies between Bahrain and Muscat increase to 6 daily flights.

 

Ahmed Janahi, Gulf Air Chief Commercial Officer, commented on the agreement: “This codeshare reflects Gulf Air’s consistent drive to offer our customers attractive options to fly to popular travel destinations. With this agreement we are not only increasing our flight frequencies to and from Muscat but also giving Muscat-based passengers an expanded range of connections with Gulf Air via Bahrain International Airport to various destinations across our network. On this occasion, we thank Oman Air for sharing our commitment and vision, which I am sure will allow us to continue to reinforce the longstanding relations between the Kingdom of Bahrain and the Sultanate of Oman – helping strengthen tourism and commercial ties.”

Abdulrahman Al Busaidy, Deputy CEO and Chief Commercial Officer, of Oman Air commented: “Oman Air is very happy with this codeshare agreement with Gulf Air, which is a strategic and important partner for Oman Air. Through this codeshare, Oman Air offers its guests a combined frequency of six daily flights. The new Muscat International Airport is also due to open soon, which will give our Bahrain-based guests an exciting opportunity to connect to our global network through a world class facility. Our guests can also benefit from a range of destinations connected through this codeshare by both the airlines, providing them with greater choice, convenience and a seamless travel experience.”
