Since entering service in 2011, the 787 family has opened more than 50 new non-stop routes around the world. Oman Air has announced that it will deploy its first Dreamliner on services to Saudi Arabia and Europe.

Boeing currently has eight 787 customers in the Middle East with a total of 175 Dreamliners ordered and 140 in backlog.

Boeing has also been contracted by Oman Air for a suite of services to support the upcoming entry into service of its 787 Dreamliners and to ensure ongoing efficiency and cost savings for its fleet.

These services will help Oman Air minimize the time and cost of maintenance while increasing airplane availability.
