Oman’s first budget airline celebrates the milestone of carrying 1 million passengers on 1st Oct 2018

SalamAir, Oman’s first budget airline was launched in 2016 to meet the country’s rapidly increasing demand for affordable travel options and to generate further opportunities for employment and business creation within the various sectors in Oman.

SalamAir recently added direct flights to Khartoum, Kathmandu, Najaf and Dhaka to its expanding network. With the addition of these new routes, Oman’s 1st low cost carrier has recently achieved another milestone of carrying one million passengers as of 1st October 2018. SalamAir started its operations to Pakistan in 2017 and currently fly to three cities, Karachi, Multan and Sialkot with 3 flights a week offering guests more choice and flexibility to plan their business or leisure travels, while meeting their needs.

Catering to this strategic growth, the airline recently announced the addition of six brand new Airbus A320neo aircraft to its growing fleet. It is expecting the delivery of one purchased Airbus A320 neo by Q4 2018, and five leased Airbus A320neo by Q1 2019.
