Oman Air will join the Oneworld Alliance. Based in Muscat, Oman Air was elected as a Oneworld member designate in Doha by the Oneworld governing board, comprising the chief executives of all member airlines. Oneworld member Qatar Airways will act as sponsor for Oman Air’s entry, providing guidance and support as the airline integrates into the alliance. Oman Air is expected to be implemented into Oneworld in 2024, after which it will provide the full range of alliance benefits to customers traveling on its flights. Members of Oman Air’s Sindbad frequent flyer program will be able to earn and redeem miles on all member airlines, with top-tier members receiving additional benefits including lounge access when traveling with other Oneworld members.

Oman Air’s entry into the alliance will provide even more flights and destinations to customers planning global travel across the alliance’s members, making Oneworld the only global airline alliance with three members in the Middle East after Qatar Airways and Royal Jordanian. Following its entry into Oneworld, Oman Air will be the third new member of the alliance in five years. Royal Air Maroc joined in April 2020, adding Oneworld’s first full member on the African continent. This was followed by Alaska Airlines in March 2021, making Oneworld the only global airline alliance with two members in the US. (American Airlines is the other.)
