Oman Air has signed a reciprocal loyalty program partnership with Qatar Airways. Sinbad Program and Qatar Airways Privilege Club members can now earn and redeem miles on either airline between Muscat and Doha. Oman Air is also resuming service to Bangkok.
Today (November 6, 2021), Oman Air, the national airline of the Sultanate of Oman, announced the signing of a reciprocal loyalty program with Qatar Airways. Oman Air Sinbad Program and Qatar Airways Privilege Club members can now earn and redeem miles for travel on both airlines between Muscat and Doha in either direction. The reciprocal loyalty partnership strengthens the commercial cooperation between both carriers and builds on the benefits of expanding codesharing. In December 2021, Oman Air and Qatar Airways announced greater cooperation to boost connectivity and enhance travel options. The Codeshare expansion will increase the number of destinations available to Oman Air customers from three to 65 on the Qatar Airways network. Likewise, Qatar Airways’ guests will enjoy travel to six additional destinations across Africa and Asia in Oman Air’s network.
In Saturday’s announcement, Oman Air’s CEO, Eng. Abdulaziz Al Raisi, said,
“The strong relationship between Oman Air and Qatar Airways offers a world of exciting travel possibilities and we’re delighted that our Sindbad members can now earn and redeem Sindbad miles for travel on Qatar Airways between Muscat and Doha. We’re equally delighted to welcome Qatar Airways Privilege Club members on board Oman Air flights on the popular sector, where they can earn and spend Qmiles.”
Also commenting on the expanded commercial cooperation, Qatar Airways Group’s Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said,
“Qatar Airways is delighted to launch this new partnership with Oman Air, offering valued members flying between Qatar and Oman significant opportunities to earn and spend miles across both airlines. This new loyalty partnership cements our dedication to the Sultanate of Oman, and we will remain committed towards creating more unique opportunities to reward our members, in addition to offering various avenues to use Qmiles with our airline partners.”
