Turkish Airlines and Oman Air have revised the existing codeshare agreement and the new partnership will see Turkish codeshare on Oman Air operating flights to Salalah and Oman codesharing on Turkish flights to Rome, Copenhagen and Algiers.

Turkish and Oman currently operate one daily flight each on the Muscat-Istanbul route under the reciprocal codeshare agreement. The schedule of these flights is designed to complement each other by allowing same day return trip at Muscat and Istanbul, and offer convenient connections at both hubs through the respective airlines’ network.

Turkish Airlines’ deputy chairman and chief executive officer (CEO), Bilal Ekşi said extending this agreement allows the carrier to increase the travel opportunities offered for passengers through its network.

He added: “We believe that this codeshare enhancement with Oman Air will exposure further cooperation opportunities for both airlines together with growing relations between our countries.”

Oman Air CEO, Abdulaziz Al Raisi said Turkish Airlines is an “ideal partner”. “As we continue to expand globally, codeshare agreements such as this help us spread our wings to newer destinations and bring us more partners and guests,” he added.

Turkish Airlines flies to more countries and international destinations than any other airline, and currently operates to 306 cities in 124 countries around the world, comprised of 49 domestic and 257 international destinations.
