Rezidor Hotel Group
Date: 23 May 2009
‘Sindbad’, Oman Air’s rapidly expanding Frequent Flyer Programme is proud to announce a new partnership agreement with Rezidor Hotel Group, one of the fastest growing hotel companies in the world.
Starting from 1st June 2009, Sindbad members will earn miles for stays at any Park Inn or Radisson Blu hotel in Europe, the Middle East or Africa. The agreement rewards every Sinbad member 500 miles per qualifying stay.
Mr. Mohammed Mubarak Al Shikely, Senior Manager Marketing, Oman Air said, “The Rezidor Hotel Group with its portfolio of nearly 270 hotels in 44 countries compliments our expanding network. Our members have the convenience of selecting hotels which offer true hospitality, luxurious accommodation and the opportunity to earn valuable miles which can be exchanged for travel rewards when staying at any of their properties across the Gulf, Middle East, Africa and Europe”.
Mr Marko Hytonen, Area Vice President of the Rezidor Hotel Group said, “Having recently added to our Oman portfolio with the opening of Park Inn Muscat and with a further two openings planned, this is an ideal opportunity to tie up with Oman’s national carrier”
Rezidor’s portfolio has been rapidly increasing across the Middle East region, with 2009 a record year in terms of the number of hotel openings. Coupled with that, the increasing presence of Park Inn and Radisson Blu hotels in Europe and Africa, provides Sindbad members with numerous opportunities to earn additional miles.
Oman Air continues expanding its operations and will fly to more destinations in Europe and Asia before the end of 2009. Some of the destinations announced are Frankfurt, Munich and Paris in Europe and Male and Colombo in Asia.
