Air Italy and Oman Air have signed a codeshare
agreement, Air Italy’s “IG” code is being placed on Oman Air’s
flights between Milan Malpensa and Muscat, while Oman Air is putting
its “WY” code on Air Italy flights between Milan Malpensa and Rome
Fiumicino, Naples, Cagliari (Sardinia), Palermo and Catania
(Sicily), and Lamezia Terme (Calabria).
Oman Air CEO, Abdulaziz Al Raisi, said, “This
codeshare agreement will make it so much easier for travelers from
throughout Italy to visit our beautiful country of Oman. We look
forward to welcoming visitors from all major Italian cities to
come to our country to experience our renowned Omani hospitality. At the same time, this opens up exciting new opportunities for
Omanis who wish to enjoy seamless travel to Italy and enjoy its
rich world of opportunities for vacations and business.”
Oman Air’s code will also be added to Air Italy’s Milan-New
York and Milan-Miami flights, once the necessary government
approvals have been received.
“This partnership with Air Italy is also a
significant development for our airline. It marks Oman Air’s foray
into North America with these codeshares offering Oman Air
customers access on Air Italy flights to New York and Miami, via
their Milan hub airport. This is an exciting milestone for our
airline, and we look forward to expanding our global coverage in
the months ahead,” added Abdulaziz Al Raisi.
