Salamair marks second anniversary

MUSCAT, February 11, 2019

SalamAir, Oman's budget carrier, recently celebrated two years of affordable travel to a growing range of exciting destinations.

Captain Mohamed Ahmed, CEO of SalamAir, said: “Our success so far has been built on the promise of offering a different proposition to travellers locally and regionally. We have been focused on providing guests with affordable, flexible and rewarding travel options across our expanding network. We have also been focused on optimising our operations, while looking into the future by investing in one of the most in-demand aircraft, the A320neos, a model that promises to improve our passenger experience and efficiency. With the first one already delivered and flying, we will be adding five more A320neo taking our fleet size to nine comparing to three when we started two years ago.”

Since its inaugural flight from Salalah to Muscat on January 30, 2017, SalamAir has carried over 1.4 million passengers. The airline enjoyed a steady rise in passenger footfall powered by its expanding route network currently standing at 14 destinations, competitive price offers, as well as the customer-centric loyalty programme ‘More on Air’ to meet the increased demand for affordable travel options around the region. The programme rewards guests with a one-way airline ticket in exchange for 10 boarding passes collected within a year. This stands in addition to its three easy fare options: Light, Friendly and Flexi; as well as the fairly-priced menu of extras, such as extra luggage allowance, seat selection and priority check-in options. The airline continues enticing different pallets after recently introducing a new meal menu onboard.

“With the arrival of the new fleet, we will open up new destinations, some of which will be the first time connecting through direct flights to Muscat like Alexandria in Egypt, plus some summer unique destinations. We will connect the rest of the GCC and increase the frequencies in many of our current destinations where we have seen increased demand,” said Captain Ahmed. - TradeArabia News Service
