Paid seating is not available on flights operated by codeshare partners. That is to say, seat selection is not allowed yet in flights operated by Oman Air and marketed by another airline.

Emergency row seats

  • Emergency row seats are located either next to or just behind the emergency exit door.
  • In the unlikely event of an evacuation emergency row seat traveller is expected to assist in the opening of the emergency exit door.
