Oman Air has announced that it has signed a codeshare agreement with EgyptAir.


The codeshare agreement on flights between Muscat and Cairo was signed as part of both airlines’ commitment to work toward a strong restart for air travel to overcome the effects of the spread of Covid-19 on the aviation sector and to expand their destination offering to customers.


The agreement means that guests on both airlines can now benefit from a wider choice of destinations in both countries, and beyond—travellers from Muscat have easy access to EgyptAir domestic destinations - Sharm El-Sheikh, Luxor, Aswan, and Hurghada, as well as Casablanca (Morocco) on the airline’s international network; travellers from Cairo have easy access to popular Oman Air domestic destination Salalah as well as international destinations Karachi (Pakistan), Colombo (Sri Lanka), and Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia).


Eng. Abdulaziz Al Raisi, Chief Executive Officer Oman Air said that the challenges facing all airlines since the onset of the pandemic have led to new strategic partnerships which ultimately create a stronger network ecosystem with more options for passengers. “EGYPTAIR has a remarkable, long-standing history in the MENA region and enjoys a strong international presence as a Star Alliance member. The codeshare agreement with Oman Air offers guests from Muscat more options for discovering Egypt, whether for business or leisure and plays a vital role in the travel restart endeavours of both airlines.”


Amr Abu El-Enein, EgyptAir Holding Chairman and CEO, said that cooperation with partners is essential for sustainability during this critical period, therefore, signing this agreement between two partners with special attributes like EGYPTAIR & OMAN AIR will further add more benefits for both airlines’ customers. Capt. Amr added, “EGYPTAIR was the first airline in MENA to join IATA and our deep industry expertise has allowed us to successfully overcome many obstacles throughout our history.”


Flights are currently available for booking.


Oman Air has witnessed rapid growth in the years after it was established. Today, it is recognised as a major global airline connecting cities across the world to Oman. Oman Air has played a major role in making Muscat a leading traffic hub in the Middle East and supporting commercial, industrial and tourism activities.
