Middle East carrier Oman Air has been showing off its new Embraer 175 regional jet at a ceremony in Muscat today. The airline has just taken delivery of the first five of the type it placed firm orders for in November 2009, as part of efforts to develop domestic routes within Oman.
The carrier will operate the aircraft in a dual-class configuration, featuring 11 seats in business class and 60 in economy.
It further renews the Oman Air fleet, the carrier having taken delivery of six Airbus A330s since 2009. A further A330 follows later this year and the airline will also take delivery of its first Boeing 787s in 2014
