Boeing has identified Oman Air as the buyer of five Boeing 737-900ERs that were previously unidentified.

Announced at the Paris air show, the deal is valued at $473 million at list prices.

"The 737-900ER provides all the benefits of the next generation 737 family, but with a higher seating capacity that gives us even better economics," says Wayne Pearce, chief executive of Oman Air.

The carrier operates two ATR 42-500s, four Airbus A330-200s, three A330-300s, two 737-700s, 15 737-800s and four Embraer 175s, Flightglobal's Ascend Online database shows. It has orders for three A330-300s, six 737-800s and six Boeing 787-8s.
