European aircraft manufacturer Airbus said Wednesday it has won a new order of three A330-300s from the Sultanate of Oman's state-run flag carrier Oman Air.
The new order will join an existing fleet of seven A330-300s at the carrier as "the winning combination of efficiency, reliability and comfort provided by the A330 continues to delight customers and passengers worldwide and will do so for many years to come," Airbus said.
The newly ordered aircraft would be operated on long haul routes and can comfortably seat close to 300 passengers, the statement added.
"This additional order will allow us to continue our strategy of growth with an aircraft we know to be both reliable and profitable, and in addition offering the highest levels of passenger comfort," said Wayne Pearce, CEO of Oman Air.
For the January-April period, Airbus's deliveries totaled 202 aircraft, 10 percent more compared to the same period last year, according to Airbus data.
