Turkish Airlines, Oman Air extend codeshare agreement

Turkish Airlines has revised the codeshare agreement with Oman Air, the Turkish flag carrier announced in a press release yesterday.

“Under the revised agreement, Turkish Airlines will codeshare on Oman Air operating flights to Salalah, while Oman Air will codeshare on Turkish Airlines operating flights to Rome, Copenhagen and Algiers,” the press release said.

Passengers are able to benefit from both carriers’ products and services due to the codeshare agreement, it noted.

Bilal Eksi, deputy chairman and CEO of the Turkish flag carrier, said: We believe that this enhancement with Oman Air will further explore cooperation opportunities for both airlines together with growing relations between our countries.

Two carriers currently operate a daily flight each on the Muscat-Istanbul route, the statement said, adding: “The schedule of these flights are designed to complement each other by allowing same day return trip to Muscat and Istanbul, and offer convenient connections at both hubs through the respective airlines’ network.”

Turkish Airlines, founded in 1933, flies to 306 destinations in 124 countries with its fleet of 337 aircraft, including passenger and cargo planes.
