Oman Air adds two further aircraft to its fleet
Oman Air is further expanding its fleet of Boeing 737-800s with the introduction of two additional aircraft, bringing the airline's total fleet to 30.
The expansion follows shortly after the Sultanate of Oman and India signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to meet the increased demand for air services between the two countries. A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) was also signed between Oman and Pakistan to increase the number of flights between the two countries.
Both wet-leased aircraft will be deployed by the beginning of February and will double daily services from Oman Air’s home base of Muscat to Chennai, Delhi and Hyderabad. In addition, the frequency of flights from Muscat to Lahore and Muscat to Islamabad is being increased to offer a daily service.
Oman Air’s chief executive officer, Wayne Pearce, said: “Increasing the size of our B737 fleet allows us to be more flexible, offering even more choice for Oman Air’s growing number of customers. In line with greater awareness of Oman Air’s outstanding international reputation amongst travellers, demand has increased considerably and we look forward to welcoming our passengers on board our additional aircraft.”
