SalamAir, Oman’s first budget airline, has announced that it will start operating daily flights to Dubai International Airport (DXB) on October 8.

The low-cost carrier said prices will start from just under OR49 ($127) (return).

The new route will complement SalamAir’s current flight to Al Maktoum International Airport until October 28 when the airline has set plans re-route all flights to DXB.

SalamAir said it will be operating daily morning and evening services to and from Terminal 2.

Captain Mohamed Ahmed, CEO of SalamAir, said: “The addition of flights to DXB is in response to our guests’ requests and the growing demand for an affordable alternative to this popular destination.

"This new route will not only capitalise on Dubai’s wider international network and economic position but also further increase the connectivity between Oman and the United Arab Emirates.”

Since its launch, SalamAir has launched flights to Muscat, Salalah, Suhar, Dubai, Jeddah, Karachi and Sialkot.
