Oman Air has announced that a new Boeing B737-800 aircraft has joined its fleet.

The new aircraft will be used on short and medium haul routes and has a capacity of 162 seats, with 12 Business class seats of seat pitch 46 inches and 150 Economy class seats with seat pitch 30 inches. Each seat is equipped with an LCD screen, back-mounted 10.6 inches.

Oman Air has operated B737s for many years and the aircraft provide the backbone of the airline’s long and medium haul fleet, with 23 currently in operation. The new aircraft will be deployed soon on its arrival for commercial flights.

Abdulaziz Alraisi, executive vice president products and brand development, said: “In keeping up with the expansion programme, Oman Air is adding new aircraft to its fast growing fleet. Known for its energy efficient systems, and combined with Oman Air’s superb maintenance staff and facilities, this is an ideal acquisition as we spread our wings to further afield.”

A second new B737-800 will be joining Oman Air’s fleet on 16 February, followed by a Dreamliner B787-9 on 23 February 2017.
