Oman Air has signed an agreement with Airbus to upgrade the cabins of its A330s.
The retrofit is planned to be completed in 2016.
As part of the upgrade, the aircraft’s existing in-flight entertainment (IFE) platform will be integrated with new seats.
Airbus’ Customer Services division will perform the overall cabin reconfiguration design, certification and will also supply the new business class seats as selected by Oman Air.
