2012-12-24 — /travelprnews.com/ — Oman Air has given away 42,000 air miles to each of four lucky members of its Sindbad frequent flier programme. The miles were offered as prizes in a members-only raffle which was launched on Oman Air’s Facebook page to celebrate the Sultanate of Oman’s 42nd National Day in November.
Weekly winners have been announced from November 25th, with each being able to redeem their 42,000 miles against flights to any point within Oman Air’s network of 42 exciting destinations. Participants were asked to ‘Like’ the page and register their entry, with winners being selected at random.
The lucky winners are Ms. Vesna Matic from Muscat, Mr. Raja Bhoganath Babu Pandranki from Abu Dhabi, Mr. Saeed Al Abri from Muscat and Mr. Jonathan Coffey from Muscat. Each of the winners can now use their miles to select a dream journey and, with a return flight from Muscat to London requiring 40,000 Sindbad Miles and Muscat to Bangkok return requiring 32,000 Sindbad Miles, the world is their oyster.
The National Day raffle is just the latest in a series of promotions, partnerships and benefits designed to add value for members of Oman Air’s frequent flier programme. Previous raffles have been run in partnership with such iconic brands as the Al Bustan Palace, Muscat, Park Hyatt Zurich and The Residence, Zanzibar, whilst partnerships with businesses such as American Express, Avis, Budget and Hertz ensure that travelling with Oman Air could not be more convenient.
