Oman Air adds new Boeing 737- 800 to its fleet

Posted 24 November 2016 · Add Comment

Oman Air has received a new Boeing 737- 800.

This was the sixth brand new Boeing 737-800 joining the young Oman Air fleet this year as part of the airline’s expansion plan. Oman Air has operated B737s for many years and the aircraft provide the backbone of the airline’s long and medium haul fleet.

The new aircraft was deployed to Bahrain on November 19 for its first commercial flight, which exemplifies Oman Air’s experience in swiftly introducing new aircraft into operations as soon as they join the fleet.

With the addition of the new Boeing 737 – 800, Oman Air’s fleet stands at 46. Currently Oman Air’s fleet consists of four Boeing 787 Dreamliners, six Airbus 330-300s, four Airbus 330-200s, five Boeing 737-900s, 22 Boeing 737-800, one Boeing 737-700 and four Embraer 175s. Three more Boeing 737 – 800s are scheduled to join the fleet next year.
