Oman Air and Turkish Airlines, have signed a codeshare agreement covering services between Oman and Istanbul.

The agreement was signed at Turkish Airlines Headquarters today by Wayne Pearce, chief executive officer of Oman Air, and Temel Kotil, president and chief executive officer of Turkish Airlines.

Pearce, said: “Under the strong and visionary leadership of its management, and thanks to the dedicated efforts of its employees, Turkish Airlines has become a globally recognized network carrier.

"As such, it is the ideal partner for Oman Air, which has justifiably attracted a reputation for offering the highest levels of comfort, luxury and outstanding service. Both airlines also offer outstanding choice for our customers, with Oman Air’s growing network currently serving 43 premium destinations across the Middle East, Europe, Asia and Africa, and Turkish Airlines flying to more global destinations than any other carrier.

"The codeshare agreement we have signed today will offer customers of both airlines even greater convenience and is the latest step in the increasingly close links between Oman Air and Turkish Airlines, both of whom share a commitment to delivering excellence in customer service."

Kotil, added: “We are extremely pleased to sign this codeshare agreement with Oman Air and aim to improve our partnership to maximize the travel opportunities offered to passengers through the extensive networks of both airlines. Oman Air continues expanding successfully, offering superior customer service, with a very young fleet.

"We believe that Turkish Airlines and Oman Air’s partnership will bring enormous benefit to both carriers, not only from a commercial perspective in rapidly growing Oman, but also in technical and training areas.”
