Oman Air plans Airbus talks unless Boeing provides 737 Max support plan


DUBAI, June 14 (Reuters) - Oman Air CEO Abdulaziz Al Raisi plans to hold talks with Airbus if Boeing does not provide a support and recovery plan for its grounded 737 MAX planes before June 17, a statement by the Omani company said on Friday.

''The grounding of the 737 MAXs has had a major financial impact on Oman Air,'' the statement cited Raisi as saying.

''The airline's expansion plans for 2019 had been significantly curtailed'' and Oman Air ''also suffered revenue losses and market share declines,'' he added.

"If I don't hear back from Boeing before I arrive at Le Bourget Airport, then I will have to go ahead with my planned business lunch with Airbus at the airshow," the Oman Air statement cited Raisi as saying.
