London Heathrow Airport (LHR) has recognised Oman Air as the cleanest and quietest airline that has significantly contributed to the reduction of noise at the airport, as per the Fly Quiet and Green chart published by LHR airport authorities.
The Omani carrier, which came in second in the third quarter of last year, jumped one place, making it the first best long-haul performer in ‘fly quiet and green’ chart in Q4 of 2018. This is a result of the airline modernising its fleet and deploying modern, eco-friendly Boeing 787 Dreamliners on the London Heathrow service.
CEO, Oman Air, Abdul Aziz Al Raisi declared: “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 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,” he concluded.
Heathrow’s latest ‘Fly Quiet and Green’ league table ranks the performance of the top 50 airlines on seven noise and emission metrics.
