Oman Air has taken delivery of a new Boeing 737-800. The airline’s CEO, Abdul Rahman Al Busaidy, took part in the ceremonies yesterday in Seattle, Washington.

The 737 is one of five purchased through an order arranged by Exim Bank. The planes will replace Oman Air's current fleet of older Boeing and Airbus airplanes.

"These new 737s have proven to be the right choice for our expansion plans," says Al Busaidy. "We have achieved unprecedented levels of reliability and profitability. We are delighted with this airplane and the ongoing support we receive from Boeing."

The airline also recently received a JAR 145 certification in recognition of excellence in maintenance.

"Oman Air introduced Boeing's new family of 737s to the Middle East and already has set the standard for operational efficiency and profitability in the single-aisle market," notes Doug Groseclose, senior vice president of international sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes.
