In response to increasing demand, SalamAir, Oman’s first budget airline, has started its flights to Doha. Operating five weekly flights from Muscat International Airport to Hamad International Airport, the new route will offer guests convenient timing, affordable travel alternatives and connectivity to a wider network of destinations. Guests can now book their tickets on www.SalamAir.com

Captain Mohamed Ahmed, CEO of SalamAir, said, “Doha is a valuable addition to our continuously growing network of destinations. With the increasing air traffic and economic activity between Qatar and Oman, the demand for more a convenient and affordable alternative is higher than ever. The launch of this highly anticipated route is a significant step towards achieving our vision of increasing connectivity to thriving tourism and commercial hubs in the region.”

 

The CEO 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.

Vice President Operations at Hamad International Airport, Mr. Ioannis Metsovitis said: “We are pleased to welcome SalamAir to Hamad International Airport’s network of airlines and to extend our best-in-class services and facilities to more passengers. HIA connects Doha to over 150 destinations; which gives the passengers more choice when they plan their journey and a seamless and unforgettable travel experience at HIA”.

A home-grown airline, SalamAir is continuously looking for ways to connect other cities in Oman including Suhar and Salalah to its regional destinations. The airline is also planning to add four A320 aircrafts to its fleet in 2018 to meet the need of its expanding network of destinations.
