Abu Dhabi International Airport has welcomed three new weekly flights between Abu Dhabi and Salalah, the popular holiday destination on the south coast of Oman.
The inaugural flight operated by the Omani airline, Salam Air, began on Tuesday and will continue until September 7, allowing travellers from the UAE to visit Salalah.
Maarten De Groof, chief commercial officer of Abu Dhabi Airports, said: “Salalah is an ever popular destination for those in the UAE seeking a cooler and nature driven destination during the summer months. With Salam Air, travellers looking to visit the Omani destination will be able to take advantage of three weekly cost-effective flights.”
Mohamed Ahmed, CEO of Salam Air added: “Salalah is proving to be an extremely popular destination, with GCC residents in particular keen to escape the summer heat. Our new Abu Dhabi to Salalah flight operating three times a week will be a boon to UAE residents looking for the perfect staycation this summer, especially as Khareef season is now upon us.”
Outbound flights will depart on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from Abu Dhabi International Airport.For all the latest travel news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
