Oman Air has added a new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner to its fleet.

The wide-body Boeing 787-9 is a stretched version of the advanced long-range twin engine B787-8. The Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft is configured with 30 award-winning flat-bed Business Class suites, designed by BE Aerospace and 258 Economy Class seats. All classes feature the state-of-the-art Thales Integrated In-Flight Entertainment System which provides an even more enjoyable guest experience, allowing access to a wide selection of on-demand entertainment delivered through a passenger experience interface developed specifically for Oman Air. 

Hunaina Sultan Al Mughairy, Ambassador of Oman to the United States, travelled on board the inaugural flight that departed Charleston, South Carolina on 5th December and arrived Muscat on 6th December 2017.

Acting CEO, Eng. Abdulaziz Al Raisi, said: “Oman Air is adding new aircraft to its fast growing fleet to keep up with the expansion programme. The delivery of new aircraft is part of Oman Air’s ambitious and dynamic programme of fleet and network expansion. The national carrier is continuing to invest with the key focus of providing guests with the very best on board experience.”

With the addition of this latest Dreamliner, Oman Air operates seven Boeing 787 Dreamliners aircraft. This aircraft will be utilised on Oman Air’s European and Far-Eastern sectors.
