The contract will include servicing of two Embraer 175 and three Airbus A330, Oman Air officials said. In 2013,JorAMCo completed two successful service checks on Oman Air's Embraers.

This will include our Embraer aircraft, and three of our Airbus A330s. Oman Air places the highest premium on safety and punctuality, and the base maintenance services supplied by JorAMCo will enable us to maintain the outstanding record we have developed in these areas.”
JorAMCO provides maintenance, repair and overhaul facilities (MRO) and is located in a special duty-free zone area in Queen Alia International Airport in Amman-Jordan, with five hangers that can accommodate up to 10 aircraft. The firm is certified to serve models like Airbus, Boeing and Embraer fleets, according to the company website.
The Jordanian firm also caters to a wide variety of aircraft types by international and local regulatory authorities such as the Jordan’s Civil Aviation Regulatory Commission (JCARC), U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
Osama Fattaleh, CEO of JorAMCo, added, “We’re pleased that our partnership with Oman Air has expanded to include the A330 in addition to the Embraer fleet. JorAMCo is keen on continuously improving the services it provides Oman Air to further develop the relationship to cover additional maintenance services.”
