The order, which will bring Oman Air’s A330 fleet to a total of 10 aircraft, is thought to be worth around $720 million.

Oman Air has placed an order for three Airbus A330-300 aircraft, the carrier confirmed on Wednesday.

The deal, thought to be worth around $720 million based on list prices, sees the carrier grow its A330 fleet to a total of 10 planes.

The A330s can carry close to 300 passengers and will be operated on long-haul routes.

“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, with our consistent investment in the aircraft family.”
