Oman Air has started upgrading the interiors of its long-haul Airbus fleet.
The airline recently welcomed back an A330-200 aircraft featuring the new seats and cabin products that will be gradually be rolled out across its entire twin-aisle Airbus fleet. Oman Air will also start taking delivery of its new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners next year.
“Despite significant financial challenges, Oman Air is investing further in its fleet and cabins. Not only will we be unveiling new B787-9 Dreamliners which will join the fleet in 2017, but we are also revamping our existing Airbus fleet,” said the airline’s executive vice president of product & brand development, Abdulaziz Al Raisi (pictured).
“The arrival in Muscat of our comprehensively refurbished Airbus A330-200 brings the aircraft into line with our latest cabin and seat designs. The emphasis is on comfort, space [and] privacy.
“Our previous A330 interiors attracted enormous international acclaim when they were first unveiled in 2009. Our new A330 interiors surpass those high standards and customers are sure to be delighted with the results,” he added.
Oman Air’s new A330-200s feature 30 business class seats in a 2-2-2 configuration, all of which recline to form fully-flat beds. The 196 new economy class seats have a pitch of 32-34 inches (81-86cm). All passengers are offered touch-screen in-flight entertainment, USB ports, plug sockets and in-flight Wi-Fi.
Oman Air currently operates a fleet of 10 A330s and four B787-8 Dreamliners. It will also take delivery of 10 B787-9s between 2017 and 2020.
