Oman Air has placed an order with Boeing for six 787-8s at the Dubai Airshow.

The airline completed an arrangement with Boeing and Kuwait-based leasing company ALAFCO to transfer existing orders for the six Dreamliners from ALAFCO to Oman Air.

“Our decision to order the 787-8 is part of Oman Air’s long-term growth strategy to expand and modernize our fleet with newer, more fuel-efficient aeroplanes,” said Peter Hill, Chief Executive Officer, Oman Air. “We see direct benefits because of the Dreamliner’s fuel efficiency and operating economics as well as the enhanced travel experience that Oman Air will be able to offer its customers aboard this aeroplane.”

Boeing explain that, in addition to bringing big-jet ranges to mid-size aeroplanes, the 787 provides airlines with unmatched fuel efficiency using 20 percent less fuel than today’s similarly sized aeroplanes.¬†

“Boeing and Oman Air share a decade-long partnership and we look forward to opening a new chapter together with the 787 Dreamliner,” said Marty Bentrott, Vice President of Sales for Middle East, Russia and Central Asia, Boeing Commercial Aeroplanes. “We see the 787 as a perfect complement to Oman Air’s growing fleet, which will enable them to serve new destinations and enhance customer experience with the world’s most advanced passenger jet.”
