Oman Air Commended for Record-Breaking Engine Change

Oman Air has been praised by GE Aviation for its record-breaking Boeing B787 engine change after the procedure was completed in just 20 hours.

The success was acknowledged at the Dubai Airshow, where Ali Redha Mohammed Al Lawatiya, executive vice president, engineering and maintenance, Oman Air was presented with a commendation.

Improvement has also been achieved on the B737 fleet, previously requiring the heavy maintenance (C-check) approximately every 24 months. The team with Boeing’s support has managed to escalate the heavy maintenance interval to 36 months and for the A-check maintenance from approximately 60 days interval to 120 days.
