The code share agreement boosts the available capacity betweenMuscat and Dubai to an impressive six flights per day in each direction on all days except Friday - the highest daily frequency to a single point on the Emirates network. On Fridays, five flights will be operated in each direction on the route.

Emirates' customers can now choose to travel on the airline's two daily flights between Dubai and Muscat, as well as on Oman Air's four or three daily services, depending on the choice of day. Each carrier will carry its own designator codes and flight numbers on the code share services.

Ziad Al Haremi said: 'The code share agreement between Oman Air and Emirates is a significant step forward in strengthening the relationship between our two airlines. 'This Agreement will not only facilitate passengers' travel, but will also attract visitors and promote both tourism and commerce between the two countries'. Each carrier's own designator codes and flight numbers between Sultanate of Oman and United Arab Emirates will identify the service. 'Both Oman Air and Emirates are theOperating Carriers, meaning, the airlines are physically undertaking the flight, and also, are the Marketing Carriers, meaning, the airlines are selling seats under their own codes on each other's flights, allowing easy access to passengers by using both Oman Air and Emirates offices in Sultanate of Oman and United Arab Emirates'.

Sheikh Ahmed stated: 'Emirates is delighted to announce this new code sharing agreement with Oman Air. The partnership reflects Emirates' commitment towards finding new opportunities to work together with other airlines, in the larger interests of our customers. Together, Emirates and Oman Air will offer customers more choice, more flexibility and improved scheduling throughout the day. 'The benefits to business travellers are enormous as they can now arrive into Dubai for a day's work on any of the three morning flights from Muscat, and return by any of the three late evening flights.

He added 'The new agreement will not only allow for greater flexibility and convenience on the Dubai - Muscat route, but will also provide smoother connections and improved choice for passengers traveling to destinations beyond Dubai, in Europe, Africa and the Middle East'.
