In this agreement, the airline has been named the club’s new official airline partner.
Oman Air has a global network that coincides with Chelsea’s enormous fan following and provides award-winning customer experiences, flying to nearly 50 locations globally, with daily flights from Muscat to London.
As part of the launch, and to commemorate its 30th anniversary this year, Oman Air and Chelsea collaborated to create a premium co-branded plane livery, which will be used by Oman Air later this year.
This is Oman Air’s first Premier League club partnership, with the airline’s branding appearing at Stamford Bridge and throughout the team’s digital platforms, as well as special experiences and events.
Chelsea FC, Chief Executive, Chris Jurasek, commented, “We are very pleased to welcome Oman Air as our Official Airline Partner. We have a shared ambition for innovation and success both on and off the pitch, and we are excited to bring this partnership to life for our fans around the world.”
Oman Air Chief Executive, AbdulAziz Al Raisi, commented, “Oman Air is extremely proud to partner with Chelsea Football Club. Together, we hope to expand Chelsea Football Club’s following across the world, whilst showcasing the routes that we fly and the excellence of our service. We also look forward to using our partnership to highlight the rich culture of Oman to the club’s existing extensive fanbase.”
