SalamAir, Oman’s new budget airline, has expanded its network by introducing its first international destination.

The double daily service to Dubai will operate from Muscat International Airport to Dubai World Central before moving to Dubai International Airport on March 26.

The airline said that it is also planning to launch flights to Saudi Arabia and Pakistan in the near future.

SalamAir said in a statement that its growing destination network was made possible by the arrival of the second A320 to its fleet, adding that it 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,” said Khalid Al Yahmadi, chairman of SalamAir.

“For a newly launched airline, our figures are already showing very promising results. The response from our guests has been very positive.”

François Bouteiller, SalamAir CEO added: “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.”

Built on the philosophy of ‘Always Welcome’, SalamAir said it offers a menu of additional services, which includes extra luggage allowance, seat selection, and priority check-in.
