Oman Air formally joined the ‘oneworld’ alliance on Monday with the full integration likely to take place by 2024.

The move will boost the alliance’s position in the Middle East. The announcement was made during the IATA annual general meeting at Doha. Oman Air will be the third airline in the Middle East to join oneworld: The other two are Qatar Airways and Royal Jordanian.

The oneworld membership will help Oman Air to provide more flights and destinations to customers planning global travel across the alliance’s members.

Once the airline gets the alliance membership, members of Oman Air’s Sindbad frequent flyer programme will be able to earn and redeem miles on all oneworld member airlines, with top-tier members receiving additional benefits including lounge access when travelling with other oneworld members

Oman Air was elected as a oneworld member designate in Doha by the oneworld Governing Board, comprising the Chief Executives of all oneworld member airlines. Qatar Airways will act as a sponsor for Oman Air’s entry into oneworld, providing guidance and support as the airline integrates into the alliance.

Once the airline gets the alliance membership, members of Oman Air’s Sindbad frequent flyer programme will be able to earn and redeem miles on all oneworld member airlines, with top-tier members receiving additional benefits including lounge access when travelling with other oneworld members.
