Oman Air currently operates five 737 MAX 8s in its fleet and has ordered another 25 that will be delivered over the course of the years.



Only a day after the Sultanate’s national carrier Oman Air said that it was ‘monitoring the situation’ on the Ethiopian Airlines crash, which involved a Boeing 737 MAX airline, the Public Authority for Civil Aviation (PACA) has said that it is temporarily suspending operations of the airline that fly in and out of all Omani airports until further notice.

The statement read: “PACA is temporarily suspending operations of Boeing 737 MAX aircraft into and out of all Omani airports until further notice.”

Earlier, Oman Air said that it was in touch with Boeing to get updates on the 737 Max 8 aircrafts as some international carriers had grounded their fleets over ‘safety concerns’.
