SalamAir announces new destinations and adds to its fleet
Oman’s SalamAir is to launch three new destinations in June and July.
These new destinations include Almaty, Kazakhstan, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and the Turkish city of Rize.
Captain Mohamed Ahmed, CEO of SalamAir, expressed his excitement about the expansion plans, saying: “We are thrilled to introduce these new destinations to our growing network. Almaty, one of Kazakhstan’s prominent cities, offers great tourism potential. We aim to establish year-round connections to cater to the demand and not limit it to seasonal periods.”
In addition to these developments, SalamAir is currently an economic study of 20 new tourist destinations in Europe and Eastern Europe. The objective is to attract tourists to the Sultanate of Oman and invigorate the tourism industry. This initiative aims to enhance the movement of tourists through Muscat and Salalah international airports.
Captain Mohamed Ahmed also said that the following routes would be reopened: Muscat-Sarajevo, Muscat-Baku, Muscat-Bursa, Suhar-Trabzon, and Muscat-Beirut. He highlighted that the Muscat-Trabzon route had become a year-round direct connection due to its popularity.
SalamAir currently operates flights to 38 domestic and international destinations, including Suhar, Salalah, Duqm, Masirah, the GCC countries, and several Arab, Asian, and European destinations.
The airline is also excited to announce the addition of new aircraft to its fleet. Within the next two months, SalamAir will receive three new Airbus A321neo; by the end of the year, three more aircraft will join the fleet, bringing the total number of SalamAir’s aircraft to 17.
Captain Mohamed Ahmed said: “Since our establishment, SalamAir has transported over 7.5 million passengers, a remarkable achievement for an airline that has completed only six years of operation. This success has had a positive impact on the tourism industry in the Sultanate of Oman.”
