SalamAir will be introducing three direct services from Muscat-Multan on February 8, 2018, representing the Omani low-cost carrier’s third destination in Pakistan.
The new service will complement the carrier’s current flights to Sialkot and Karachi, and will further increase connectivity between the two countries.
The three-times-weekly flights will leave Muscat at 23:55 and will arrive in Multan at 03:30. The return flights will depart Multan at 04:50, arriving in the Omani capital at 06:35.
CEO, SalamAir, Captain Mohamed Ahmed enthused on the development: “The addition of Multan to our destinations will allow us to better serve our guests and cater to rising number of business and leisure travellers. The Pakistani community makes up about 13 per cent of the local expatriates working in Oman. It is therefore no surprise that this route has been one of the highest in demand. We have worked very hard with the authorities to ensure that our flight timings will allow our guests to conveniently connect to other destinations including Dubai, Doha, Jeddah and Salalah via Muscat.”
Captain Ahmed explained that SalamAir is exploring other underserved destinations in Pakistan including Islamabad, Lahore and Faisalabad, and is working to increase flight frequencies on current routes.
As well as new flights to Multan, SalamAir’s network also includes services to Salalah, Sohar, Doha, Dubai, Jeddah, Karachi and Sialkot.
