Salam Air flies twice daily to DXB

Business Traveller (Middle East) - - Upfront -

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.”
