Oman Air is 99% owned by the Oman government. The airlines is known for their top Business and First class service. Economy travellers are not complaining because fair treatment was provided and there was enough in the flight. Let us see what Oman Air has to offer.
Commencement of Oman Air
Oman Air initially started in 1970 when Oman International Service (OIS) commenced. However the airlines began operation in 1993.
The leader of the airlines is Mr. Paul Gregorowitsch. He made mass contribution to Oman Air’s developments beginning in August 2014. Mr. Gregorowitsch had held several international managing positions and one of which is with Air France-KLM.
The flag carrier of Oman has a fleet size of 39, consisting of 1 ATR 42/72, 10 Airbus A330, 23 Boeing 737, 1 Boeing 787 Dreamliner and 4 Embraer ERJ-170. Their main base is the Muscat International Airport.
*The airlines recently changed their company logo from their green-white with khanjar old logo to the new grey-gold frankincense smoke with wings.
