Colombo, Sri Lanka:
Availability seems excellent for the dates and destinations that I checked.
An added bonus with these fares is that the rules state you can have a stopover in Muscat en route free of charge – Oman and Zanzibar on one trip would make for a brilliantly exotic adventure!
Using the multi-city search feature on the Oman Air site itself (or asking a decent travel agent) is probably the best way to book a stopover.
Is Oman Air Business Class any good?
There are currently two Oman Air Business Class products on the market. The old Business Class is very popular as it feels more like an old-fashioned First Class than Business,
but the new Business Class is meant to be extremely good too
What Miles can I earn?
Oman Air is not a member of any of the big alliances, but you can earn Etihad Guest Miles at a rate of 150% of flown Miles. A Return to Bangkok, for example, would therefore earn about 18,000 Miles. Remember that you can easily pool Etihad Miles in a family account, so could potentially earn a very useful amount if there’s more than one person flying.
Alternatively, you could get 200% of the flown Miles in Oman Air’s own Sindbad loyalty programme, but I confess total ignorance about Sindbad…
Another excellent Business Class sale with a very good airline.
