Oman Air B737s offer ‘latest IFE technology’

Oman Air has taken delivery of a second Boeing 737-900 at Muscat International Airport, with Paul Gregorowitsch, the airline’s CEO, stating, “The new aircraft will offer our customers an outstanding passenger experience. With newly-designed cabins, spacious seating and state-of-the-art inflight entertainment (IFE) systems, they are a very welcome addition to our fleet.”
The IFE solution chosen by Oman Air for its 737-900 aircraft was Thales’ AVANT in-seat audio video on demand (AVOD) system, which is compatible with MPEG4 media and offers a wide range of films, music, games and information.
The IFE can be viewed in on the same size LCD screen – 10.6 inches – in both business and economy class. However, business class features many other technical capabilities, including seats with electric backrests and bottoms as well as seat depth controls, a PC power outlet and a personal reading light.
The delivery marks the beginning of a three year fleet expansion programme from Oman Air, which will see the arrival of 15 Boeing B737s, three Airbus A330s and six Boeing B787 Dreamliners in total.
