Oman Air and Air Mauritius have been added to Aeroplan's growing roster of more than 40 airline travel partners.

Oman Air is the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman. The airline operates flights from its hub in Muscat, Oman throughout the Mid-East, several European gateways, the Indian Sub-Continent, South Asia, as well as to popular adventure destinations in Africa.

Air Mauritius is the national carrier of the Republic of Mauritius. The airline operates flights to its European gateways Paris Charles de Gaulle and London Heathrow, as well as to Mumbai, Johannesburg, Madagascar, Réunion and Rodrigues.

These new partnerships expand Aeroplan’s coverage in the region, and most excitedly, gives members access to even more premium air products. 

Members will be able to earn on or redeem for Oman Air’s Apex Suite in the Business Class cabin, as well as the Private Suite in the First Class cabin. 

Air Mauritius is the first airline in the world to operate both the new generation Airbus A350-900 and A330-900neo and expands Aeroplan’s presence giving members more inventory and choice for airlines serving premium leisure destinations in the Indian Ocean vicinity.

Aeroplan is the only frequent flyer program in North America offering the opportunity to earn and redeem on Oman Air and Air Mauritius flights.
