LONDON: Flag carrier Oman Air has been recognised as the cleanest and quietest carrier in contributing to the reduction of the noise footprint at UK’s Heathrow Airport (LHR), as per the Fly Quiet and Green chart published by LHR airport authorities.
The airline, which came second in the third quarter of last year, has jumped one place up making it the first best long-haul performer in the “Fly Quiet and Green” chart in Q4 2018.
This positive ranking comes as a result of the airline investing in modernising its fleet and deploying its modern eco-friendly Boeing 787 Dreamliners on the London Heathrow service.
Abdul Aziz Al Raisi, Chief Executive Officer, Oman Air, said: “We follow the LHR Fly Quiet and Green league table very keenly and it is indeed gratifying to see Oman Air rank first in this table for the fourth quarter of 2018. The move from second position in the third quarter to the first in the fourth quarter is the result of upgrading the aircraft on the London Heathrow service. Moving to the quieter more efficient Boeing 787 Dreamliner has had a positive impact and shows our commitment to operating the cleanest, quietest and most efficient flights possible across our growing international network. This is indeed a proud moment to see our efforts recognised by one of the world’s leading airports.”
