Muscat based Oman Air recently announced expansion of its fleet and services as it received the delivery of its first 737 MAX airplane from Boeing. Although Oman Air has operated the Boeing 737 for a very long time, with the current order, it will be able to achieve a double-digit percentage improvement in fuel efficiency.
For Oman Air, MAX 8 airplane will seat 162 passengers. The carrier has ordered 20 MAX airplanes in October 2015 .Since then Oman Air has entered into a lease agreement for 10 more of the jets. The addition of new airplanes will grow the carrier’s fleet of 27 737s and seven 787 Dreamliners.
Abdulaziz Al-Raisi, acting CEO, Oman Air, said: “The aircraft will be a perfect complement to our 737 family as we continue to expand our operations and play an increasingly active role in promoting Oman for business as well as a unique tourism destination, which is growing rapidly in popularity with every passing year.”
The 737 MAX airplane is said to be the fastest-selling airplane in Boeing history. Boeing has received orders from 92 customers for over 4,300 planes.
“Today marks another milestone in our 25-year partnership with Oman Air. We are proud to have supported their growth and we look forward to the 737 MAX taking the airline to new heights,” said Marty Bentrott, sales vice president for Middle East, Turkey, Russia, and Central Asia & Africa.
