SalamAir to expand destination portfolio


Omani low-cost carrier, SalamAir, will be introducing new destinations to its rapidly expanding network, with flights to Saudi Arabia scheduled to begin on April 16, 2017.

The airline will operate daily routes to Jeddah’s King Abdulaziz International Airport and will add Madinah to its flight schedule in the following weeks.

The airline aims to further boost frequencies to the Kingdom, by introducing direct flights from Muscat to Taif and a through flight from Salalah to Taif via Muscat, along with more flights to Madinah during Ramadan.


Scheduled to initiate within the month are also services to Pakistan, with flights to Multan, Sialkot and Karachi.

“The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is an important extension to our network to meet the strong demand for low-cost travel,” stated chairman, SalamAir, Khalid Al Yahmadi. “We are offering greater flexibility and choice to guests traveling on these routes for leisure, business and religious purposes. These new flights will open new tourism, trade and investment opportunities, contributing to the Omani economy by attracting more tourists and business travellers, and in turn spur the creation of employment opportunities in the Sultanate.”

CEO, SalamAir, François Bouteiller also commented: “It has been a busy period since our launch in January and the introduction of these new destinations reflects our determination to keep the momentum up.

“We are excited to open up the skies to more people, offering them freedom of choice and good value on our reliable, quality and always welcoming flights.”
