Oman Air to rent six Boeing 787s from Kuwait's Aviation Lease and Finance Co

Oman Air, the country's national carrier, has agreed in principle to rent six Boeing 787 Dreamliners for 12 years, Kuwaiti aircraft lessor Aviation Lease and Finance Co (Alafco) said on Sunday 23 September.

The first plane will be delivered in 2012. Alafco did not give a value for the agreement.

The company last month lost a $3 billion contract to sell state-owned Kuwait Airways 19 Airbus and Boeing passenger planes, because the Kuwait parliament refused to approve the spending.
