Oman Air is reintroducing the Oman Air Pass. The Pass, which must be purchased and used online, is a simple, convenient and cost-effective way for guests to enjoy their trip with savings up to 50 percent. The Oman Air Pass, delivered by Optiontown, has been re-launched with a host of new destinations included – flights between Oman and other GCC countries and the Indian Subcontinent are all covered and guests will now be able to design a pass which suits their needs. Passes can be customised for individuals, families, groups of friends or business travellers; with guests being able to select up to 50 listed names. Timings are flexible and flights can be booked from six months to four hours in advance; flights being booked further in advance, receive the greater price advantage. The ticket can then be utilised in a time span of one week or up to two years.
