Omni Air International Completes 777-200ER Aircraft Certification

First Registered Non-Scheduled Airline To Receive B777 Certification

Omni Air International (Omni) has received FAA approval to operate B777-200ER, aircraft including 180-minute ETOPS authority. The Tulsa, OK-based Part 121 carrier becomes the first US registered non-scheduled airline to operate the B777-200ER aircraft in passenger service. A second aircraft will be added to the company's certificate in mid July.

Omni's fleet modernization  began two years ago with the acquisition of the B767-300ER. "The addition of the B777-200ER complements our transition to a two engine, modern fuel efficient fleet. We are extremely excited to offer this best in class aircraft to our worldwide customers. We believe this long range international aircraft will be a game changer for our sector of the industry," said Jeff Crippen, Omni's President and CEO. "All of the employees at Omni expended extraordinary effort during this certification. The B777 will enhance Omni's ability to offer a wide body product that provides greater range and fuel efficiency to our customers."

"Omni continues to be a leader in turnkey passenger charter and ACMI wet lease services. The addition of the B777-200ER to our growing fleet of B767-300ER aircraft enhances our core competencies of custom designed air transportation programs for both the charter and ACMI wet lease business," said Robert Jared, Omni's Senior Director of Business Planning and Strategy. "Our new product offering is among one of the few aircraft in the US charter fleet offering individual seat back entertainment for our passengers."

Omni is in its 19th year as a non-scheduled airline which has operated to more than 75 countries, with 60,000 flights totaling more than 300,000 flight hours with a fleet of B767-300, B757-200, and DC10-30 extended range aircraft.
