Oman Air has taken a major step forward in its growth and service, debuting its first codeshare flights connecting Oman and the USA, which streamline travel from Muscat to New York and Miami, via Milan, through its partnership with Air Italy.

Additional U.S. destinations, which are expected to be announced in the coming months, are anticipated to be added in time for the summer season.

Under the initial agreement, which was established in December, 2019, Air Italy’s “IG” code was placed on Oman Air’s flights between Milan Malpensa and Muscat. At the same time Oman Air put its “WY” code on Air Italy flights between Milan Malpensa and Rome Fiumicino, Naples, Cagliari (Sardinia), Palermo and Catania (Sicily) and Lamezia Terme (Calabria).

Oman Air operates 10 round-trip flights each week to Milan’s Malpensa Airport, with daily service to the Italian city.

Air Italy offers daily round-trip flights from Milan to New York and 6 flights per week from Milan to Miami, all using Airbus A330 wide-body aircraft.
