In response to increasing demand, Oman’s budget airline SalamAir will start flying to Doha on November 22nd.
Operating five weekly flights from Muscat International Airport to Hamad International Airport, the new route will offer guests convenient timing, affordable travel alternatives to the Qatari capital and connectivity to a wider network of destinations.
“Since its launch, SalamAir has been committed to deliver on three key promises, to offer travelers in Oman and across the region a safe and reliable budget travel alternative, to represent Oman and promote its tremendous tourism potential and alternatively contribute to the economic growth of the Sultanate,” said Captain Mohamed Ahmed, CEO of SalamAir.
“With the launch of our eighth destination, I am proud to say that we are taking one step closer to achieving what we envision for the airline by increasing connectivity to thriving tourism, commercial and economic hubs in the region.”
The CEO went on to explain that as a young airline, SalamAir enjoys the advantage of flexibility which allows it to shift and adapt its services to cater to demand. To date, all SalamAir destinations have been determined by what guests want and as a result, the airline operates successful destinations including Salalah, Suhar, Dubai, Medina, Jeddah, Sialkot and Karachi.
A home-grown airline, SalamAir is continuously looking for ways to connect other cities in Oman including Suhar and Salalah to its regional destinations. The airline is also planning to add four A320 aircrafts to its fleet in 2018 to meet the need of its expanding network of destinations.
