Middle Eastern carrier Oman Air has taken delivery of its first Embraer 175 jet.
The carrier in November 2009 placed a firm order for five E-175s plus five options.
Oman Air says it will deploy the aircraft on regional routes operating from Muscat International Airport.
In addition, Oman Air has signed the Embraer pool flight hour programme service contract. The programme provides replacement parts and eliminates the need for inventory investments.
