Gulf Air and Oman Air in Codeshare

Gulf Air, the Kingdom of Bahrain’s national carrier, 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.

Mr. 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.”

This new codeshare provides customers with additional frequencies on the popular route while also giving passengers to Bahrain enhanced flight connectivity possibilities with Gulf Air to various destinations in Europe, Asia and the Indian Subcontinent and, in tandem, giving passengers to Muscat enhanced flight connectivity possibilities with Oman Air to various destinations across its network. Bahrain’s national carrier currently serves 42 cities in 25 countries, spanning three continents – including Tbilisi, Georgia which launched on 22nd June 2017. The airline operates double daily flights or more to 10 regional cities in addition to select destinations in the Indian Subcontinent and Europe, from its hub at Bahrain International Airport. The codeshare flights connecting Bahrain and Muscat are currently available for sale and Gulf Air tickets can be purchased via the airline’s official website gulfair.com, its 24-hour Worldwide Contact Centre on (+973) 17373737 in Bahrain, or any Gulf Air sales offices and approved travel agencies.
