SalamAir, Oman’s first budget airline, has expanded its network by introducing its first international destination, Dubai. The double daily service operates from Muscat International Airport (MCT) to Dubai World Central (DWC) before moving to Dubai International Airport (DXB). SalamAir’s growing destination network was made possible with the arrival of the second A320 to its fleet, named “Fateh Al Khair”. The airline will introduce a third daily flight to Salalah.
“It has been an exciting start to the year for SalamAir with the introduction of our two destinations, Salalah and Dubai, which reinforces our commitment to strongly support and further trade and economic opportunities for Oman,” says Khalid Al Yahmadi, chairman of SalamAir. “For a newly launched airline, our figures are already showing very promising results. ”
François Bouteiller, SalamAir ceo, says, “Dubai is a thriving leisure and business destination and with convenient dual flight times, we are offering more flexible travel options for our guests, all within their budget. With the aim of improving the network’s connectivity, we will also be announcing multiple new destinations to and from Saudi Arabia and Pakistan in the coming weeks with the arrival of additional aircrafts.”
With fares from Dubai to Muscat as low as Dh122 ($33.2), guests can now book their flights on the website and can choose between three easy fare options: Light, Friendly & Flexi.
