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.

Oman Air Weekend Flash Sale

Eligible European starting points are:

  • Paris
  • Munich
  • Milan

The destinations are:

  • Abu Dhabi
  • Doha
  • Delhi
  • Bengaluru

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 is not in a major alliance but suggests that Etihad Guest is a possible place to credit the miles.

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.

    I travel in cattle with OmanAir quite a bit – leisure travel from Riyadh when they have good deals. Service is fine, food is usual whY stuff – edible.
    Never been up the pointy end. The long haul product I think is fine.

    Rubbish airline. Used their business class a few months ago to fly from London to Chennai but will never ever use them again.

    Business class was shabby to start with. They left my baggage at Muscut and took 3 days to deliver it in an appalling condition after several follow up calls and repeated false promises. The baggage was sent by a van, then by a local bus followed by a train journey and finally an auto. In between it had been dragged over filthy surfaces and delivered with loads of mud and dirt all over. I had meanwhile buy new clothes which they didn’t have the courtesy to reimburse. I had to through away the biscuits and chocolates as I feared contamination.

    • Joachim Victor says:

      Sorry for the typo. I meant, “I had to throw away”

    • Evan says:

      What biscuits and chocolates?

      • Mike says:

        Is this relevant to the reader’s story? If not pointless question.

        • Sav says:

          Are you relevant mike?

        • Andy says:

          I say the biscuits and chocolates are most pertinent! Especially if said biscuits were fig rolls. Damn impossible to source those outside the mother country.

        • Mike says:

          My mum has always told me i am sav. But now im not sure.

    • John says:

      My WY horror story comes from my “enterprising” friend: he bought a flight LHR-SIN including extra baggage allowance for £400 last year. This trip was to be funded by certain goods (including chocolates!) that he bought in the UK for about £500 and were to be sold in Asia for £1000 – so profit £100 plus “free” trip.

      WY cancelled his flight and transferred him to QR, but QR wouldn’t honour the 60kg baggage allowance, so he had to go home and accept a refund, and lose all his booked Air Asia trips.

    I have flown Oman Air many times; they have an excellent business class product – one that definitely puts BA to shame! Highly recommended

    Be careful with the crediting of Oman flights to Etihad though. I’ve done it a number of times over the past 5+ years and it never happens automatically. Etihad customer service is questionable at best.

    I chased miles for a flight in November once they hadn’t arrived in the advised timeframe. Nothing was done. I chased again and was told my claim (actually my follow up email) was outside of the claim window and Etihad wouldn’t honour it (despite the email chain showing my in-date valid claim). 3 emails pointing this out and I finally got my miles.

  • Sandra says:

    Oman air very variable depending on crew on a particular flight. Muscat airport small and often chaotic as, particularly late evening, a lot of Asian flights leave with workers going home & returning with everything but the kitchen sink! You wouldn’t want to spend hours there in transit (they have been building a new terminal for years & it’s still not finished as far as I am aware). Lounge ok but not great. Muscat itself is nice for a couple of nights stopover to break a long haul flight.

    • AspirationalFlyer says:

      The new terminal opened several months ago (I think in March from the few articles I’ve seen online). The new first and business class lounges look excellent. I agree that the old terminal was struggling to cope with the volume of passengers and was best avoided. Muscat is my favourite city in the Middle East. Oman is a beautiful country. I’m trying the airline in November.

      • James A says:

        The new terminal is airy and excellent – the opposite of crowded.
