Oman Air has taken delivery of the first of 30 Boeing 737 Max 8s it has on order.

Flight Fleets Analyzer shows that the first aircraft bears the registration A40-MA (MSN 6762), and has been leased from Air Lease. It is configured with 162 seats in two class: 12 in business and 150 in economy.

"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," says the carrier's acting chief executive Abdulaziz Al-Raisi.

Oman Air placed an order for 20 737 Max aircraft in October 2015, and subsequently entered into lease agreements for 10 additional aircraft. Fleets Analyzer shows that the airline operates 10 AIrbus A330s, 27 737s, seven 787s, and four Embraer 175s.
