Gulf Air announces tie-up with Bank Muscat


Gulf Air and BankMuscat, a bank in the Sultanate of Oman, have announced an exclusive partnership with Gulf Air's Falcon Frequent Flyer Programme at a press conference.

Under the arrangement, members of Gulf Air's Falcon Frequent Flyer Programme will earn one Falcon mile for every R02 spent for purchases made using either a BankMuscat Visa Premier, or MasterCard Gold card anywhere in the world.

"Gulf Air is going the extra mile in our commitment to further develop our product offering to suit the best interests of our customers and our Falcon members. And I believe this partnership provides excellent additional value," said Meher Parakh, manager, Loyalty Programmes, Gulf Air.

"In celebration of this partnership, which offers increased benefits for our customers and Falcon members, two lucky BankMuscat Visa Premier or MasterCard Gold cardholders will win up to 250,000 Falcon Miles at a raffle draw on December 31, more than enough to take a family of five between the Gulf and any European destination on Gulf Air," said Abdul Razak Ali Issa, chief executive, BankMuscat.

"In addition 10 existing Falcon Members who apply for BankMuscat's Visa Premier or MasterCard Gold cards by December 31, also stand to win 50,000 bonus miles each."

BankMuscat has more than 90 branches, 127 ATMs and an estimated market share of 35 per cent in Oman.
