Oman Air to re­ceive nine more 737 Max 8s in 2019

Muscat Daily - - NATION -

Mus­cat - Oman Air has cel­e­brated the de­liv­ery of its fifth of 30 Boe­ing 737 Max 8s it has on order. This comes at a time when the air­line is con­tin­u­ing its tra­jec­tory of rapid growth and ex­pan­sion. The air­line is ex­pected to re­ceive nine more 737 Max 8s next year.

Ac­cord­ing to a press re­lease, by the end of this year, Oman Air will be re­ceiv­ing two more Boe­ing 787-9 Dream­liner, one of which will fea­ture the new First Class prod­uct which boasts eight pri­vate suites, 24 Busi­ness Class seats and 232 Econ­omy seats.

The ad­vanced air­planes will help Oman Air meet its com­mit­ment to fur­ther en­hance op­er­a­tional ef­fi­ciency by fly­ing a young, mod­ern and safe fleet.

The 737 Max fam­ily is de­signed to of­fer cus­tomers ex­cep­tional per­for­mance, with lower per-seat costs and an ex­tended range to open up new desti­na­tions in the sin­gle-aisle mar­ket.

The Max fam­ily pro­vides op­er­a­tors a 14 per cent im­prove­ment over to­day’s most ef­fi­cient sin­gle-aisle air­planes, in ad­di­tion to the high­est ef­fi­ciency, re­li­a­bil­ity and pas­sen­ger com­fort.

Fol­low­ing the launch of new routes to Is­tan­bul and Casablanca in June and July re­spec­tively, Oman Air will be launch­ing di­rect flights from Mus­cat to Moscow on Oc­to­ber 30 and rein­tro­duc­ing flights to the Mal­dives on Oc­to­ber 28.
