Oman Air has been the quietest and cleanest airline from Middle East serving London Heathrow.
Ranked just behind Scandinavian Airlines in Heathrow’s league table of clean and quiet operators, Oman Air hailed its fleet and pilots for flying aircraft quietly.
Oman Air operates 787 Dreamliners on its Muscat to London route.
Heathrow Airport’s ‘Fly Quiet and Green’ programme encourages airlines to conduct approaches and departures to provide minimal disruption for people who live and work near the airport.
The programme, which rates airlines in seven areas related to noise and emissions, includes a league table that ranks their performance.
In the latest quarterly update, which reflects flight operations by the top 50 airlines that serve Heathrow, Oman Air earned a close second, with ‘Excellent’ ratings in each of the seven areas.
Abdulaziz AlRaisi, Oman Air CEO, said: “This latest recognition, which follows several high-level awards for excellence in our operations, reflects that Oman Air is a world-class airline from our service to our guests and the Sultanate to our regard for the environment.
“Our pilots and flight operations department work hard to ensure that all our flights are safe, efficient and conducted with care for the environment.”
Oman Air flies 787 Dreamliners to the UK three times a day, with two flights to London Heathrow and one flight to Manchester.
