Oman Air has entered a new sponsorship deal with Chelsea FC that will see Oman Air become the club’s global airline partner for the next three years.

Chelsea FC is one of the highest ranking clubs in the English Premier League, which is considered the most followed and best-known football league in the world with a seasonal audience of over three billion. The highlights of the partnership include specially designed co-branded livery, which will be unveiled towards the end of the year, as well as joint promotional content and CSR campaigns.

Valuable collaboration

“We are extremely proud of this valuable collaboration, which not only celebrates the love for football but also presents a remarkable opportunity to showcase the beauty, culture and hospitality of Oman to Chelsea’s extensive fan base. With an astonishing 135 million fans, 85% of whom are in international markets, we are offered an unparalleled platform to cultivate awareness of Oman in new markets across the globe, not just on match days, but well beyond,” said Abdulaziz Al Raisi, chief executive officer of Oman Air. “This partnership marks an exciting new chapter and we are honoured to be associated with such a formidable team, while elevating Oman’s position as a must-visit tourist destination.”

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.”
