Oman Air, Rezidor ink air miles deal
Muscat, May 23, 2009
Oman Air’s frequent flyer programme Sindbad and Rezidor Hotel Group, a leading international hotel company, have signed a partnership towards rewarding Sinbad members with air miles for qualifying stay at the hotel.
Starting from June 1, Sindbad members will earn miles for stays at any Park Inn or Radisson Blu hotel in Europe, the Middle East or Africa. The agreement rewards every Sinbad member 500 air miles per qualifying stay.
“The Rezidor Hotel Group with its portfolio of nearly 270 hotels in 44 countries compliments our expanding network,” said Mohammed Mubarak Al Shikely, senior manager marketing, Oman Air.
“Our members have the convenience of selecting hotels which offer true hospitality, luxurious accommodation and the opportunity to earn valuable miles which can be exchanged for travel rewards when staying at any of their properties across the Gulf, Middle East, Africa and Europe,” he added.
Marko Hytonen, area vice president of the Rezidor Hotel Group said: “Having recently added to our Oman portfolio with the opening of Park Inn Muscat and with a further two openings planned, this is an ideal opportunity to tie up with Oman’s national carrier.”
Rezidor’s portfolio has been rapidly increasing across the Middle East region, with 2009 a record year in terms of the number of hotel openings. The increasing presence of Park Inn and Radisson Blu hotels in Europe and Africa provides Sindbad members with numerous opportunities to earn additional miles.
Oman Air continues expanding its operations and will fly to more destinations in Europe and Asia before the end of 2009, according to a report.
Some of the destinations announced are Frankfurt, Munich and Paris in Europe and Male and Colombo in Asia. – TradeArabia News Service
