Oman Air, which is the national airline of Oman, has announced that it will expand its fleet of Boeing 737s with the launch of two additional airliners. This expansion will enhance the total fleet strength to 30.
Both aircrafts will be operated in the beginning of February and will deploy double daily flights to Delhi, Chennai and Hyderabad. These flights will take to the air from the airline’s base in Muscat.
The expansion is a result of the memorandum of understanding signed by Oman and India in order to cater to the bigger demand for air services between the two nations.
Flights with Oman Air are enhanced to offer a daily service to Lahore and Islamabad from the airline’s hub based in Muscat.
Oman Air’s Chief Executive Officer, Wayne Pearce welcomed the expansion with joy. He stated, “Increasing the fleet of our B737 will allow us to be more flexible. It provides us more choice for the airline’s growing number of customers.”
