The Sultanate of Oman’s national airline, Oman Air, will not cancel its order for 25 Boeing 737 MAX aircraft, despite how its grounding has affected the airline’s growth.

Ever since the worldwide grounding of the Boeing 737 MAX in March of 2019 following two deadly crashes, Oman Air has had to cancel hundreds of flights every month.

The Muscat International Airport (MCT) based national flag carrier currently has five Boeing 737 MAX aircraft in its fleet of 53 mixed Airbus, Boeing, and Embraer aircraft.

Oman Air has a good relationship with Boeing

While being interviewed during the recent World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland by the American financial and business news portal, Business Insider, CEO of the Oman Aviation Group (OAG) Mustafa al Hinai said:

After having received its fifth Boeing 737 MAX in October of 2018, the Gulf State carrier was slated to receive a further nine aircraft the following year but never happened due to the worldwide grounding.

Last summer, Oman Air CEO Abdulaziz al Raisi admitted that the grounding of Boeing’s best-selling jet had caused a major financial impact on the airline and had curtailed its plans to expand its network in 2019 and 2020.
