Yes it does, but it is only valid for your transit time or thereabouts like 24hrs, I can’t exactly recall and can’t be bothered going through my passport.

If you search my posts you may find my write up on the experience.

I've booked this fare and am trying to sort out the stopover offer via Oman Air. I've been communicating with a representative via email but having trouble working out what they're actually offering. Reading the following link it seems they only offer 2 nights for 1, which is not very helpful if you're transiting less than 24 hours. I have been told that a visa must be organised by the passenger, however I believe transit visas are available for 5OMR,

There is something about a Business Class stopover but it seems the link is dead - https://www.omanair.com/en/holidays/...uscat-stopover

I'd be interested if anyone else has any recent luck with a stopover deal.

I posted this in the original thread when I found this deal, I mentioned in post 2 of this thread to merge the 2 but that didn’t happen so I’ll post a link to the other thread here: WY Oman Air CGK-MXP €1068

https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/29826051-post7.html

Its kind of annoying because this new thread was started only a few days after the last post in the original, if people just look a few pages or scroll down or search before posting then they can avoid posting duplicate deals and it’s just easier than repeating q’s and a’s.

The frustrating part of the transit offer is that it does not seem to be advertised anywhere on the Oman Air website. The fact that I've been corresponding with a representative about a stopover, quoted my booking number and I've been offered a hotel each way at a total cost of $440US, made me think that there was no free offer.

Following the above posts I have called the office in Australia and they have confirmed the STPC. It all sounds rather informal. There is no booking or confirmation, simply front up to the 'Oman Air Hotel Desk' inside the arrivals terminal and they will arrange everything. Transfers, visas, hotel. There is an updated PDF that was released last month with details -

Those that want to purchase this ticket, the last date is 14-July. I guess that should be CGK time. So please take note on that.

I saw ZRH is also rather cheap. 17 mil IDR. FRA/LHR/CDG/MUC/CMN are also quote decent price 20-24 mil IDR

Hi guys, I’m desperate to book this but want to arrange a few days stopover. I can get the fare direct, but I cannot get it to price out on Oman airs website with a stopover. My TA can’t book this fare either. Any suggestions?

as of this e-visa site,
hXXps://evisa.rop.gov.om/en/visa-eligibility
you could apply 10 days - 26A Tourist Visit Visa for 5 Omani Rials (~13 USD).

I did eventually get this to work on a computer (as opposed to my iPad). Very happy to snag this deal AUD $1500 rt over New Year/early Jan into FRA and out of MXP with a weeks stop in Oman. Positioning up from Aus J on Garuda for sub $2k at XMAS meaning a return Jan J fare to Europe AUD $3400 which is unheard of (at any time of the year).

Thank you OP!

Can I ask how you did the stopover? Am I completely missing something during booking, or do I need to make a multicity booking or something like that?
