Royal Jordanian, Oman Air enter free sale deal
Amman, November 17, 2013
Royal Jordanian and Oman Air have signed a free sale codeshare deal offering passengers seven weekly flights between Amman and Muscat.
Under the terms of the agreement, the flights are operated by Oman Air and marketed by both carriers.
The move comes in light of the suspension of the RJ operations to Muscat, in November last year, whereas Oman Air now operates seven weekly flights between Amman and Muscat.
Amer Hadidi, Royal Jordanian president/CEO, said: “Oman Air and Royal Jordanian enjoy a strong relationship. This cooperation will further enhance the partnership between our two companies, particularly since it allows RJ to sell unlimited number of seats on Oman Air between Amman and Muscat, based on the signed free sale agreement.”
He added that due to the keenness of both airlines to provide superb on-board and on-ground services, RJ will offer its customers the chance to experience a convenient and timely travel experience with its partner’s flights.
Hadidi pointed out that the codeshare agreement was concluded with Oman Air to the benefit of both carriers and of passengers from both countries.
Royal Jordanian passengers can book their trips on the Oman Air flights through the RJ website, the airline’s call centre or its travel agents around the world.
Wayne Pearce, CEO of Oman Air, said: “Oman Air is pleased to be working with Royal Jordanian to offer customers greater choice and convenience. Both airlines are renowned for their high standards of comfort and hospitality and we will be building on the strength of our existing relationship to offer a seamless passenger experience, from ticket purchase to touch-down.”
Royal Jordanian flies to 61 destinations spread over four continents. The latest additions to the route network were Mosul, Algiers, Lagos and Accra, launched this year.
In addition to Oman Air, Royal Jordanian currently has 12 codeshare contracts with international airlines, including American Airlines, British Airways, US Airways, Iberia, Tarom, Gulf Air, Syrian Air, Siberia airlines, Malaysia Airlines, Air Berlin, Sri Lankan Airlines and Meridiana Fly Airlines. - TradeArabia News Service
