The new aircraft was deployed to Bahrain on Nov 19, for its first commercial flight. With the addition of the new Boeing 737-800, Oman Air’s fleet stands at 46.

 

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 B737’s for many years and the aircraft provide the backbone of the airline’s long and medium haul fleet, Bernama news reported.

 

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

 

Oman Air’s contribution to the national economy stands at RO 415 million (USD 1,079 million) that is achieved by creating employment opportunities to Omani nationals, bringing tourists to the Sultanate, building global connections, and last but not least, through supporting small and medium enterprises (SMEs).
