Salam Air flies twice daily to DXB
LOW-COST CARRIER Salam Air is pinning its hopes on strong loads between Muscat and Dubai International (Terminal 2) this season after launching the route last month – and it’s wasted no time raising it to double daily. Prices start from AED252 one way.
CEO Mohamed Ahmed said: “The way the schedules have been designed, it’s for leisure and business travellers,” he said. Salam Air currently operates three A320s – it plans to acquire three more next year – on routes between Muscat, Sohar, Salalah, Dubai, Jeddah, Medina, Sialkot and Karachi. “We hope to fly to more points in the Subcontinent,” he said. “I wouldn’t say Oman Air is competition, we complement each other – they are legacy and we are low-cost, we are tapping into markets that are underserved.”
