Oman Air has taken delivery of its first of three triple-class Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft it has on order. Inaugural flight WY102 will be deployed to London Heathrow Terminal 4, from Muscat International Airport, starting 1 July 2018.
The new Dreamliner features Oman Air’s new First Class product which boasts eight private suites, plus 24 Business Class seats and 232 Economy seats.

Fully enclosed, the suite has 55-inch (139.7-centimetre) extra-tall doors to ensure complete privacy.
Abdulaziz Al Raisi, Acting CEO of Oman Air, said, “The 787-9 will further enhance Oman Air network with its incredible range and capacity. Our investment in the latest technology aeroplanes is part of our Vision 2030 strategy and our commitment to our esteemed customers to offer complete onboard comfort.”
A host of enhancements will be introduced across all cabins from dining, amenities and comfort.
A new exclusive chinaware, cutlery, glassware, linens and bedding collections will be launched to provide Oman Air premium guests with a unique, bespoke experience.
Not forgetting young flyers, a new set of children’s activity kits called Junior Sinbad will also be launched to keep children entertained.
All classes will feature ‘Aria’, a new state-of-the-art Thales Integrated In-Flight Entertainment System designed exclusively for Oman Air featuring an immersive cinematic interface design, showcasing the latest in on-demand blockbuster movies, TV programs and audio selections.
