Oman Air launches new Ramadan baggage offer

National carrier Oman Air has announced a special baggage offer for Ramadan under which travellers in economy classes will be able to travel with two bags (weighing up to 30kg in total) for no extra charge during the festival period. 

The same offer will also be applicable for Oman Air guests who book their flights during Ramadan for travel after the holy month. Guests wanting to travel with more than two pieces of luggage totalling 30kg will be able to purchase an additional piece of up to 20kg for a nominal fee, said the flag carrier in a statement.

For travel within Oman, the rate per extra piece of 20kg bag will be RO16 ($41.4) with the number of extra bags that can be purchased put at four; for Jordan, Iran, Iraq it will be RO20 ($52) and two bags; for Tanzania, Kenya, Egypt (RO20 and two bags); UAE, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia (RO16 and two bags); India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal (RO20 and two bags); UK, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland - RO30 ($78) and four bags and for sectors in Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, China, Indonesia it will be RO30 and four extra bags, it stated.

Unveiling the offer, Oman Air officials said the idea for this new baggage offer was raised at a guest panel organised by the airline last week, where a selection of the airline’s Sindbad Frequent Flyer members were asked for their opinions and suggestions on how Oman Air can improve its new baggage system. 

The decision was then taken by Oman Air to implement this special baggage offer during Ramadan, it added. 

Deputy chief executive and executive VP (Commercial) Abdulrahman Al Busaidy said: "We are delighted to be introducing this special baggage offer in Ramadan as a way to celebrate the holy month and meet the needs of our valued guests."

"As an airline, we place great importance on listening to our guests and responding to their opinions as we continue our journey to ‘Become the Best’. We will be advertising the special policy to the public through multiple channels to ensure that the message is clearly conveyed and that everyone can take advantage of this great offer," he added.-TradeArabia News Service
