Oman Air board weighs aircraft purchase

The board of Oman Air is set to vote on a plan to add three Airbus SAS A330-300 wide-bodies and the same number of Boeing Co 737 classics, as it seeks to bolster capacity before existing orders kick in from 2014, Muscat Daily has reported. The state-owned airline is also bringing forward delivery of two Embraer SA E175 jets to August and October from next year after passenger revenue surged 28% in the first five months, according to CEO Wayne Pearce.
