Oman Air has launched a ‘Weekend Flash Sale’ – see here.
Fare can be booked until Saturday 11th August as we are working off the Middle East weekend here!
You must travel between 15th September and 10th December.
The good news is that fares are around £1,000 return in Business Class. Unfortunately, you can’t depart from the UK. Eligible European starting points are:
The destinations are:
- Abu Dhabi
Prices are EXCELLENT. Here are some examples from Paris which seems to be the cheapest option:
- Abu Dhabi – €1,129 (£1,003)
- Doha – €1,155 (£1,026)
- Delhi – €1,051 (£933)
- Bengaluru – €1,296 (£1,151)
All flights are via Muscat.
Oman Air generally has a decent reputation although you should do your own research into the exact planes in use on the route you are looking at and the seats in place. I have never flown them myself.
There is a virtual tour of their business class product here but that only seems to cover the A330 aircraft – the Boeing 787 fleet has a different seat.
You MUST book via this special page of the Oman Air website which shows the potential destinations and starting points in the dropdown menus. If you don’t have a credit card with 0% foreign exchange fees, your best option for paying is American Express Preferred Rewards Gold which offers triple points – 3 per £1 – when you book flight tickets in a foreign currency. This is because the transaction triggers the ‘double points for airline spend’ and the ‘double points for foreign spend’ bonuses.
