Oman Air is set to slash air fares to 39 destinations by 18 percent as part of plans to celebrate Oman National Day.

The airline said the 18 percent discount applying to all fares on both Business and Economy Class return flights.

Tickets went on sale on Saturday and will continue until November 18. All travel must be completed by midnight on December 10, it said in a statement.

Wayne Pearce, CEO, Oman Air, said: "As the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman, we are delighted to be joining the country's citizens in celebrating National Day by offering an outstanding 18 percent discount on international flights to 39 destinations."

Pearce added: "Our special offer is a further demonstration of Oman Air's commitment to our nation and its citizens."

Oman Air said earlier this week that it was in talks to finalise a codeshare agreement with Royal Jordanian.

The Amman-based airline confirmed it will suspend its flights from Jordan to the Gulf state on November 17 “due to commercial reasons”.

Oman Air will continue to operate seven weekly flights on the Muscat-Amman route, which will be marketed by both airlines once the codeshare agreement has been finalised. A deadline for the conclusion of talks was not given.

In June, Pearce said it was looking to expand its codeshare agreements and was in talks to further target the US and South East Asia through alliances.

Oman Air currently has three codeshare partners, including Dubai’s Emirates Airline, Malaysia Airlines and the UK's BMI.
