SalamAir Launch Doha Flights

Today the new Omani low-cost carrier SalamAir launched flights from Muscat to Doha’s Hamad International Airport. The airline operates a fleet of Airbus A320 aircraft featuring an all economy cabin of 174 seats.

This new airline commenced operations on 30th January this year and has welcomed over 400,000 passengers since that date.  “Since its launch, SalamAir has been committed to delivering on three key promises, to offer travellers in Oman and across the region a safe and reliable budget travel alternative, to represent Oman and promote its tremendous tourism potential and alternatively contribute to the economic growth of the Sultanate,” said Captain Mohamed Ahmed, CEO of SalamAir. “With the launch of our eighth destination, I am proud to say that we are taking one step closer to achieving what we envision for the airline by increasing connectivity to thriving tourism, commercial and economic hubs in the region.”

The airlines 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.

The new Doha service will operate 5 times a week and the inaugural flight was welcomed with a traditional water cannon salute followed by a press conference and warm friendly smiles!
