The new wide-bodied jets will bring the national carrier's A330 family fleet to a total of 10 Airbus aircraft. 
“The efficiency, reliability and passenger appeal of our in-service A330’s already make The Pillar of Oman Air’s long haul operations,” said Wayne Pearce, CEO of Oman Air. “This additional order will allow us to continue our strategy of growth with an aircraft we know to be both reliable and profitable, and in addition offering the highest levels of passenger comfort.”

Airbus did not announce a scheduled delivery date for the newly ordered A330s.
