Oman Air, the national airline of Sultanate of Oman, has been recognized as the cleanest and quietest carrier in contributing to the reduction of the noise footprint at UK’s Heathrow Airport, as per the Fly Quiet and Green chart published by LHR airport authorities. The airline which came second in the third quarter of last year has jumped one place up, making it the first best long haul performer in “Fly Quiet and Green” chart in Q4 2018. The positive ranking comes as a result of the airline investing in modernizing its fleet and deploying its modern eco-friendly Boeing 787 Dreamliners on the London Heathrow service. Heathrow’s latest ‘Fly Quiet and Green’ league table, which ranks the performance of the top 50 airlines on seven noise and emission metrics, had placed Oman Air in second position in the third quarter of 2018, climbing up 26 places over the previous quarter.
