Kenya Airways passengers now can use Oman Air’s flights to Muscat


Oman Air has signed a codeshare agreement with Kenya Airways, an international airline and the flag carrier of Kenya. According to the new deal, which will be effective from August 28, 2017, the services will cover the flights between Muscat and Nairobi.

Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate, has already started flights to the capital of Kenya from March this year. The new agreement will give the passengers of Kenya Airways direct access to the capital of Oman from Nairobi. The codeshare flights will operate on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays every week.

Oman Air’s CEO, Paul Gregorowitsch, expressed his happiness over the codeshare agreement. He considered it as a sign of progression in the trade sector that has been growing steadily between the two countries over the years.

According to Mr Gregorowitsch, the partnership also reflects the hospitality for what Oman and its people have a reputation. On the other hand, Sebastian Mikosz, the CEO and Managing Director of Kenya Airways Group, sees the codeshare agreement as a fulfilment of their promises to their customers. It is likely to increase the competitive offering and connectivity choices.

The agreement will be a blessing to both the tourists and Kenyan people who need to visit Oman for either travelling or visiting someone. It also opens a new door of possibilities for the Australian market. Aussies can take the advantage of Oman Air’s lucrative fares for flights that connect big Australian cities to Nairobi. The carrier also has services to Zanzibar and Dar es Salaam in Tanzania.

The flights from Australia starts from $1,660 for the economy class and $4,955 for the business class.
