Omni AIr International adds its first Boeing 777, receives FAA approval to operate it

Omni Air International-OAI (Tulsa) added its first Boeing 777-200 in May. Formerly operated by United Airlines, Boeing 777-222 ER N918AX (msn 26935, ex N789UA) is now operational.

Yesterday (May 31) Omni announced it had received FAA approval to operate the 777 aircraft including 180-minute ETOPS authority.

Omni becomes the first US registered non-scheduled airline to operate the Boeing 777-200 ER aircraft in passenger service.  A second aircraft will be added to the company’s certificate in mid-July.

Omni continues its commitment to fleet modernization which began two years ago with the acquisition of the Boeing 767-300 ER.

Founded in 1993, Omni is in its 19th year as a non-scheduled airline.  According to the airline, Omni has operated to more than 75 countries, with 60,000 flights totaling more than 300,000 flight hours with a fleet of Boeing 767-300, Boeing 757-200, and McDonnell Douglas DC-10-30 aircraft. Its customers include both US and foreign governments and commercial airlines and other entities with a need to move passengers around the globe.
