Oman Air to join the oneworld alliance

Last year, Oman Air hinted at its intention to join the oneworld alliance for the first time. Since then, much work must have been done, because, Oman Air just announced that they will join the alliance shortly.

Oman Air to join oneworld by 2024

Oman Air and the oneworld alliance announced, on the sidelines of the IATA annual general meeting yesterday, that the airline will join the oneworld alliance by 2024, further strengthening the alliance’s position in the Middle East.

Oman Air’s entry into oneworld will provide even more flights and destinations to customers planning global travel across the alliance’s members, making oneworld the only global airline alliance with three members in the Middle East after Qatar Airways and Royal Jordanian.

Oman Air was elected as a oneworld member designate in Doha by the oneworld Governing Board, comprising the Chief Executives of all oneworld member airlines. oneworld member Qatar Airways will act as a sponsor for Oman Air’s entry into oneworld, providing guidance and support as the airline integrates into the alliance.

Once the alliance membership is live, members of Oman Air’s Sindbad frequent flyer programme will be able to earn and redeem miles on all oneworld member airlines, with top-tier members receiving additional benefits including lounge access when travelling with other oneworld members.

Bottomline

Oman Air is joining the oneworld alliance by 2024. This brings me great joy personally since I’ve been a oneworld loyalist for the better part of over ten years now.
