SalamAir to launch Doha flights

Times of Oman - - OMAN - Times News Ser­vice

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.
