American Express Middle East and Oman Air Partner to Reward Customers

American Express Middle East and Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman, are partnering to offer American Express Cardmembers even greater value. Cardmembers enrolled in the American Express Middle East Membership Rewards Programme can now redeem their points for Oman Air Sindbad Miles. With this partnership, Oman Air becomes American Express Middle East's tenth airline redemption partner, further cementing the position of Membership Rewards as the region's leading loyalty programme.

Membership Rewards is a globally award winning rewards programme from American Express where one point is earned for virtually every dollar or equivalent spent on the Card. Membership Rewards points do not expire and can be redeemed across a wide selection of reward categories including flights, hotels, dining and entertainment, a variety of merchandise, and charity donations.

Mazin Khoury, Chief Operating Officer, American Express Middle East said: "We are very pleased to welcome Oman Air as a Membership Rewards redemption partner in the Middle East which is part of our ongoing commitment to offer MENA's strongest and most valued airline rewards programme. Our Cardmembers are passionate about travel and appreciate the choice and flexibility to earn rewards that enhance their lifestyles."

"Providing unmatched benefits and life-enriching experiences to Cardmembers is paramount to American Express Middle East. The Membership Rewards programme is one of the ways we can demonstrate this commitment to our Cardmembers," continued Khoury.

Abdulrazaq Alraisi, Oman Air's Chief Commercial Officer, said: "We are delighted to announce the partnership with American Express Middle East and are pleased to offer even greater value to our Sindbad members. With a choice of more than forty destinations to choose from across Oman Air's growing network, and a host of world class partners, it could not be easier for American Express Cardmembers to exchange their Membership Rewards points for Sindbad Miles. And if our Sindbad members purchase their flight tickets using their American Express Cards, they will see the benefits all the more quickly.

"Sindbad Miles can be redeemed for Flight Rewards, enabling customers to experience Oman Air's renowned on-board hospitality or to upgrade to our award winning Business and First Class cabins.

Abdulrazaq Alraisi concluded: "Oman Air is committed to going the extra mile on behalf of our customers and our new partnership with American Express Middle East shows how we are continually adding to the range of benefits we offer."

Oman Air's partnership with American Express Middle East is the latest step in the airline's ongoing drive to deliver convenience and value for all its customers, as well as the ultimate passenger experience onboard its fleet of modern and luxurious aircrafts.
