The airline offers wide-body service between Muscat and Salalah, including the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Airbus A330 in addition to the Boeing 737, with eight flights per day in each direction, providing flexible travel and connecting flight options.

“Salalah is teeming with tourists from all across the Gulf region at this time of year,” stated Ahmed Ali Al Mahrouqi, regional vice president - Oman & GCC.  “Verdant mountains, cool drizzle and breathtaking natural settings serve as a magnet to tourists who wish to get away from hotter climes. Year after year, the number of people who are fascinated by the wonderful Khareef phenomenon that surrounds the beautiful city of Salalah grows dramatically.

"To satisfy this burgeoning demand, Oman Air has boosted its Salalah frequency, now offering 238,754 seats and convenient connections between Salalah and major destinations via Muscat. Salalah's reputation as a top tourist destination during the Khareef (monsoon) season is reflected by the addition of flights on the sector.”
