Maiden flight of SalamAir to Doha

SalamAir has made its inaugural flight from Muscat Hamad International Airport (HIA) to Doha. The first budget airline from Oman, SalamAir will operate five times a week between Muscat and Doha, with connections to Salalah, Suhar, Dubai, Medina, Jeddah, and Sialkot and Karachi in Pakistan. Outside Oman, Qatar is the fourth country to be served by the new airline.

SalamAir chairman Khalid al-Yahmedi said that the company is so happy that they could operate between Muscat and Doha in the very second year of its operations. The new airline was launched last year.

The new route, hoped Yahmadi, would offer travellers convenient timing, affordable travel alternatives and connectivity to a wider network of destinations.

SalamAir plans to operate more flights and routes in the first half of next year as at least four more A320 aircraft would be joining its fleet.
