MUSCAT: Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman, now delivers easy access to millions of accommodation choices – and a new opportunity to earn frequent flyer miles – through its partnership with Booking.com, a world-leading site for reserving hotel rooms and other lodging.
To celebrate this new partnership, members of Sindbad, Oman Air’s award-winning frequent flier program, earn triple miles for accommodations made on hotel bookings through Oman Air’s website by Dec. 31, 2019 and completed by March 31, 2020.
Sindbad members will subsequently earn 1 mile for every US dollar spent via the co-branded site. Travellers can choose from over 28 million hotel rooms and other options in 228 countries to find their ideal place to stay for business and leisure travel – with no booking fees.
Paul Starrs, Chief Commercial Officer at Oman Air, said: “We are delighted to welcome Booking.com as a valuable new partner and make it easier for our guests to create the journeys of their choice while adding substantial value to Sindbad, our award-winning frequent flier program. This is one more partnership initiative that improves our guests’ travel experiences by offering an exceptional range of choices and frequent flyer miles, in addition to expanding our reach by targeting new customers by working with industry-leading partners”.
