SalamAir to launch Doha flights
MUSCAT: Oman’s first budget airline—SalamAir—plans to launch flights to Doha in Qatar.
“Say hello to Doha! Five flights a week starting November 22,” the airline said on Sunday.
Earlier this month, SalamAir launched its first daily direct flight from the Muscat International Airport to the Dubai International Airport with two flights a day.
Operating five weekly flights from the Muscat International Airport to Hamad International Airport, the new route will offer guests convenient timing, affordable travel alternatives to the Qatari capital and connectivity to a wider network of destinations.
“Since its launch, SalamAir has been committed to delivering on three key promises; to offer travellers in Oman and across the region a safe and reliable budget travel alternative, to represent Oman and promote its tremendous tourism potential and alternatively contribute to the economic growth of the Sultanate,” said Captain Mohamed Ahmed, chief executive officer of SalamAir.
“With the launch of our eighth destination, I am proud to say that we are taking one step closer to achieving what we envision for the airline by increasing connectivity to thriving tourism, commercial and economic hubs in the region.”
Ahmed went on to explain that as a young airline, SalamAir enjoys the advantage of flexibility, which allows it to shift and adapt its services to cater to demand. To date, all SalamAir destinations have been determined by what guests want and as a result, the airline operates successful destinations, including Salalah, Suhar, Dubai, Medina, Jeddah, Sialkot and Karachi.
