About Oman Air
Founded in 1993, Oman Air (www.omanair.com) is the flag carrier airline of Oman. Boasting a fleet of 50 aircraft flying to 50 international destinations, Oman Air is a key export brand for the country of its origin. Flying under the slogan “Modern Vision, Timeless Traditions”, the airline operates scheduled domestic, regional and international passenger flights, as well as charter fights and air taxi services. The airline’s primary hubs are situated at Muscat International and Salalah International Airport. It is wholly owned by the Oman Government, and is a member of the Arab Air Carriers Association.
The airline commenced its international long haul services to London and Bangkok in 2007. The airline expanded its fleet in the period leading up to 2010, acquiring 5 Airbus A330 from Airbus, and leasing an additional 2 Airbuses from Jet Airways.
