Oman-based carrier SalamAir has added a new direct service from Muscat to Bahrain, the airline has announced.

From December onwards, SalamAir will fly six times a week to Bahrain except on Fridays, following the same schedule.

“In keeping with the growing demand from our guests for seamless connections between Oman and Bahrain, we are delighted to launch this new destination,” said SalamAir CEO Captain Mohamed Ahmed. “Flying to Bahrain is an important development, considering there is a lot of family connections, along with it being a popular destination of interest for leisure and business travellers.”
