The high life: Oman Air

From opulent suites to state-of-the-art in-flight entertainment, Oman Air’s new Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft provides the ultimate in air travel.

As of July 1, guests travelling from London to Muscat will experience absolute luxury on board Oman Air’s new Dreamliner. The Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft is configured with award-winning flat-bed Business Class seats, designed by BE Aerospace and 232 Economy Class seats, providing comfort in style. 

Furthermore, Oman Air has just launched New First Class suites (pictured above) on board its 787-900 aircraft from London. All classes feature the state-of-the-art Thales Integrated In-Flight Entertainment System, which provides an even more enjoyable guest experience, allowing access to a wide selection of on-demand entertainment delivered through a passenger experience interface developed specifically for Oman Air. 

Travelling in unparalleled comfort, visitors to Oman will experience the very best of Oman culture from the moment they step on board the aircraft.

Suite talk
The new First Class suite offers unparalleled levels of comfort with one of the longest 180 degrees flat-bed seat available on any commercial airliner. Fully enclosed, the suite has 55 inch extra tall doors to ensure complete privacy. 

There is also a handy literature pocket, the latest touch screen IFE handset compartment and hangar, a dedicated life vest compartment, ottoman belted seat, as well as electronically controlled privacy divider, and touchscreen controlled backrest, leg rest, lumbar and seat. 

Guests can also enjoy 22-inch Gen V Video screen monitor, touch screen controlled reading and do-not-disturb mood lighting.  

A la carte dining at a spacious meal table, as well as a chilled in-suite minibar with a cocktail table is also available.  Additionally the suite boasts a dedicated wardrobe and stowage for cabin-approved size baggage. With the addition of the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner and the new Boeing 737-800, the Oman Air fleet now stands at 48.

Enhanced service
Oman Air operates up to 200 flights per day from its new state-of-the-art passenger terminal in Muscat and provides guests with a thoroughly enhanced service and experience.  

The new terminal building has already won the 2018 World Travel Award’s Middle East’s leading new tourism development project for this year.   

The new passenger terminal at the Muscat International Airport boasts an unrivalled service for travellers passing through the terminal and the airport is now one of the finest airports in the region adding value to the people and economy of Oman.

Premium lounges
The new and exclusive premium lounges at the award-winning airport offers guests an incredible service as they travel to Oman or even further afield. 

Spread over two storeys, the lounge offers travellers a wide array of food and beverage services including dining areas and bars, luggage room, entertainment area, a smoking room, prayer rooms, business centre, kid’s room, nap area, shower facilities, baby changing facilities and a wellness area. 

Spanning almost 500 square metres, and with an overall capacity of 100 people, the area designated for First Class guests offers exceptional services including a personal chef, limousine service from the lounge to the aircraft and relaxation rooms. While the Business Class area is 2,314 square metres with an overall capacity of 516 people. 

Incredible destinations
One of the most recent additions to Oman Air’s expanding network is the introduction of flights from the UK to The Maldives via the hub in Muscat. 

Widely considered one of the most desirable destinations in the world, The Maldives will be a welcome addition to the network and one that will appeal particularly to UK travellers looking to explore the destination’s pristine beaches and coral islands dotted in the Indian Ocean.  

Oman Air hopes to encourage travellers to stop off for a night or two in Muscat before taking a three and half hours flight from Oman, to Malé, Maldives. The Maldives flight will commence on the 28 October 2018 in time for the 2018-19 winter season and will operate using our new B738-MAX aircraft. 

The relaunch of the Maldives service comes at an exciting time, as Oman Air also recently announced new flights to Istanbul in June, Casablanca in July and Moscow in October.

The recent appointments (see below), delivery of new aircrafts, and the launch of news routes are all part of Oman Air’s ambitious and dynamic expansion. Oman Air is currently undergoing an exciting fleet and network expansion programme, which will see the airline operate up to 66 aircraft to around 60 destinations by 2022. These highlight ways in which Oman Air is committed to providing its guests with the best possible travel experience.
