Oman Air has announced new codeshare flights with Air Italy that will connect Oman and the United States.
Using the codeshare flights, passengers will now be able to travel to travel from Muscat to New York City and Miami via Milan.
Additional US destinations are expected to be announced in the coming months.
“This is a noteworthy development for Oman Air and an excellent way to start another strong year for the Sultanate’s airline,” said Oman Air CEO Abdulaziz Al Raisi. “These flights make it considerably quicker and easier for our guests to reach these popular US destinations and for people in these cities to visit Oman.”
“We look forward to welcoming more business and leisure travellers to the Sultanate and help our guests rediscover the joys of travelling – in style to and from these international centres of trade, tourism and culture,” he added.
As part of the agreement, which was established in December, Air Italy’s ‘IG’ code was placed on Oman Air flights between Milan and Muscat, while Oman Air put its ‘WY’ code on Air Italy flights between Milan and Rome, Naples, Cagliari, Palermo, Catania and Calabria.
Oman Air operates 10 round-trip flights each week to Milan, while Air Italy offers daily flights to and from Milan and New York and 6 flights weekly between Milan and Miami.
