Oman Air announced that it was joining the oneworld® alliance back in June 2022. The carrier, based in Muscat was sponsored by Qatar Airways and slated for this year. Now, it looks like it’s on track to happen.

The oneworld® alliance officially began on February 1, 1999 with American Airlines, British Airways, Cathay Pacific, and Qantas as its founding members. It was formed to create a seamless passenger experience and to reward frequent flyers with additional benefits (including some of the most generous lounge access of any of the three alliances).
oneworld® currently includes the following airlines:
- Alaska Airlines
- American Airlines
- British Airways
- Cathay Pacific
- Japan Airlines
- Malaysia Airlines
- Qatar Airways
- Royal Air Maroc
- Royal Jordanian
- SriLankan Airlines
Oman Air operates a fleet of around 50 Boeing 737, Boeing 787, and Airbus A330 aircraft. It’s premium cabins and lounges are widely lauded and it will make a nice addition to oneworld®. Qatar Airways and Oman Air already work pretty closely and this addition into the alliance will only strengthen that.
Anthony’s Take: I like the opportunities afforded by airlines being part of alliances. With reciprocal lounge access and the ability to earn and burn miles across carriers, it opens up many possibilities.
