One more of the new A330 / 300 aircrafts, scheduled for delivery this year, joined Oman Air fleet last week. The brand new aircraft flew on its delivery flight from its home in Toulouse to Muscat and marked another feather in the cap of Oman Air.
A very happy Peter Hill, CEO, Oman Air said:
“Oman Air’s A330 fleet is growing, with five delivered aircrafts so far, one more to come in May and another in the Spring of 2011. The network is expanding fast and our reputation as the most preferred airline is spreading. With this addition, we did commence our much awaited 3-class service to Paris on 28th March.”
Launching the new service, Hill said:
“Oman Air’s new three-class service between Paris and Muscat delivers everything the discerning traveller could want. Our non-stop direct flights to Paris offer a smooth and hassle-free journey; furthermore our stunning new aircraft offer more space, comfort and luxury than ever before.”
With lie-flat seats, direct aisle access and a la carte dining for every passenger in First Class, Oman Air offers an unmatched level of luxury for its premium class passengers. With just six seats within the first class cabin, together with a luxurious lounge area, the passenger experience is akin to flying in an exclusive private jet. In addition, marking a pioneering milestone in the history of aviation, Oman Air became the first airline in the world to offer both mobile telephony and broadband wi-fi internet access on board its flights.
The seats in each class of the new service have been designed to the highest specifications by EADS Sogerma. The First Class Mini Suite offers the longest lie-flat seat available on any commercial airliner and is set within a massive 87-inch pitch. Furthermore, with a 25.5-inch wide seat, and eight point massage system built in, stowage for hand luggage, dedicated space to hang a coat and a huge 23-inch video monitor, Oman Air’s First Class Mini Suite is in a class of its own.
