(MENAFN - Arab News) Oman Air is further expanding its fleet of Boeing 737-800s with the introduction of two additional aircraft, bringing the airline's total fleet strength to 30.

The expansion follows shortly after the Sultanate of Oman and India signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to meet the increased demand for air services between the two countries.

A memorandum of understanding (MoU) was also signed between Oman and Pakistan to increase the number of flights between the two countries.
Both wet-leased aircraft will be deployed by the beginning of February and will double daily services from Oman Air's home base of Muscat to Chennai, Delhi and Hyderabad.

In addition, the frequency of flights from Muscat to Lahore and Muscat to Islamabad is being increased to offer a daily service.
Oman Air CEO Wayne Pearce welcomed the expansion.

He says: "Increasing the size of our B737 fleet allows us to be more flexible, offering even more choice for Oman Air's growing number of customers. In line with greater awareness of Oman Air's outstanding international reputation amongst travellers, demand has increased considerably and we look forward to welcoming our passengers on board our additional aircraft."

Boeing 737s currently form the backbone of Oman Air's fleet and fly on a range of short and medium-haul routes.

In addition to the two new aircraft, the fleet includes 15 B737-800s, two B737-700s, four Airbus A330-200s, three A330-300s, four Embraer E175 regional jests and two ATR 42s.

With seating capacity for 12 in business and 150 passengers in economy class, the additional aircraft will enable Oman Air, as the preferred airline for travel, to meet the need for greater travel between the two countries.
