Oman Air forms new alliance with Accor

Oman Air

Oman Air has joined forces with Accor to offer members of their respective loyalty programmes – Le Club AccorHotels and Sindbad – a range of benefits to enrich and reward their travel experiences.

The new partnership enables Le Club AccorHotels’ (LCAH) members to earn rewards points when flying with Oman Air by converting 1,500 Sindbad miles into 500 LCAH rewards points.  At the same time, it will enhance the experience of Le Club AccorHotels members, as they will have the opportunity to redeem their rewards points into Sindbad miles to benefit from awards tickets and upgrades with the carrier, whereby every 4,000 LCAH points equals to 1,500 Sindbad miles. Conversions are easy and fully digital with an efficient points management system.

Members of both programmes will be able to purchase stays and discounts for their next trip at more than 3,500 hotels ranging from luxury to economy in joint destinations. They can also benefit from premium experiences and exclusive themed packages curated by Accor, which include access to live music concerts, food festivals and sporting venues, such as Paris Saint-Germain VIP box and tickets. These assets will be available through the new Accor rebranded loyalty programme, ALL-Accor Live Limitless, to be launched in Q4 2019.

The partnership also allows elevated reward value for Accor’s loyalty customers throughout a network of more than 50 destinations serviced by Oman Air, which is based in Muscat in the Sultanate of Oman, a fast-growing destination for business travellers and vacationers who enjoy a wide range of natural, cultural and historical experiences.

Chief commercial officer, Oman Air, Paul Starrs stated: “Our aim is to make Sindbad one of the most attractive and rewarding frequent flyer programmes. The addition of Le Club AccorHotels will further enhance benefits offered to our members by allowing them even more options to earn and redeem miles seamlessly for their stays at over 3,500 hotels worldwide.”

Meanwhile, senior vice president business development and partnerships, Accor, Mehdi Hemici said: “By joining forces with Oman’s leading Sindbad frequent flyer programme, we are proud to reward soon our most loyal guests with more unique and meaningful experiences. The radical transformation of Accor’s lifestyle loyalty programme, embodied by the future brand ALL-Accor Live Limitless, will bring to life our ‘Augmented Hospitality’ strategy and enable more possibilities in the day-to-day lives of our members.”
