Salamair receives second A320neo aircraft

Omani homegrown airline Salamair has received a brand-new Airbus A320neo aircraft, the second of this model in the airline’s fleet.

The new A320neo is custom-built for Salamair, with seating for 180. The newest addition, which will join the airline’s existing Airbus A320neo, is part of Salamair’s extensive expansion strategy.

Captain Mohamed Ahmed, CEO of Salamair said, “We are thrilled to be one of the first airlines in the region to take receipt of the much sought-after A320neo aircraft. This new aircraft means we are opening the skies for more guests and meeting the growing demand for convenient, pocket-friendly travel options in the region.”

The airline said it’s expecting another A320neo aircraft delivery in June, with three more later this year, bringing the total number to six, which will further its ambitious aim being able to reach 60 destinations.

The new A320neos include 20% fuel burn reduction per seat and 14% lower cash operating costs per seat.

Salamair’s network operates to 20 destinations, including the recently launched destinations Tehran, Istanbul and Trabzon.
