SINDBAD, Oman Air’s rapidly expanding frequent flyer programme, has announced a new partnership agreement with Rezidor Hotel Group.
As from last month Sindbad members will earn miles for stays at any Park Inn or Radisson Blu hotel in Europe, the Middle East or Africa. This tie-up means that for every eligible stay in either a Park Inn or Radisson Blu property, Sindbad members will earn 500 miles.
Speaking on the agreement, 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.”
Mohammed Mubarak Al Shikely, senior manager marketing, Oman Air said, “The Rezidor Hotel Group, with its portfolio of nearly 270 hotels in 44 countries, has a strong presence across our network. Our members have the convenience of selecting hotels which offer true hospitality, luxurious accommodation and the opportunity to take home valuable Sindbad miles, which can be exchanged for travel rewards, when staying at any of their properties across the Gulf, Middle East, Africa and Europe.
“We are pleased to welcome Rezidor as our partner and to affirm our dedication in providing our members with the best in global travel partnerships.”
