Salam Air Oman launches Flights

Oman’s new airline Salam Air has launched. Its flights between Muscat & Salalah 2 times a day are operational with an A320, while planned flights between Muscat and Dubai are to come from mid February.

Future routes are planned into East Africa, where there is also a carrier with the same Arabic spelling طيران السلام ; presumably this will be resolved if Oman’s Salam Air does launch flights to Zanzibar.

Salam Air has tickets generally less than Oman’s other airline, Oman Air.

The airline is managed by François Bouteiller as CEO who was previously with Flynas, the Saudi low cost carrier.

Ownership is directly by ASAAS (Muscat National Development & Investment Company – an Oman government operation.) who also own the Hilton Garden Inn Hotel to be built in Al Khuwair Muscat in Oman.
