Boeing has delivered the first of 30 737 MAX airliners to be operated by Oman Air.

The Muscat-based carrier ordered 20 MAX variants in October 2015 and has since entered into a lease agreement for ten more of the jets.

The airline’s Acting CEO, Abdulaziz Al-Raisi, commented: “At Oman Air, offering the best possible on-board experience is key to our success and the 737 MAX has already earned a reputation for its exceptional performance, efficiency and guest experience.  The aircraft will be a perfect complement to our 737 family as we continue to expand our operations and play an increasingly active role in promoting Oman for business as well as a unique tourism destination, which is growing rapidly in popularity with every passing year.”

In Oman Air’s configuration, its MAX 8s will seat 162 passengers; 150 in economy and 12 in Business class.  The airline says the latter will be electrically-controlled, offering passengers more privacy with enhanced trim and finishes.

While the Business class seats will offer a 17in (43.18cm) Thales Gen V, touch-screen AVANTE monitor, economy will have a similar 10.2in (25.9cm) monitor.  In addition, there will be high powered USB port for each passenger regardless of class.
