Muscat: Oman’s first budget airline – SalamAir – will begin tickets sale soon. “The aircraft is being inspected by the authorities as we speak and we're working on changing the seats to leather. Ticket sales coming soon,” the airline announced on twitter on Tuesday.
It also said: “We’re on our path to be ready to be flying with you, we'll need a few weeks to finalize the remainder of the requirements.”
Fares for SalamAir — Oman’s first budget airline — may start lower than OMR 15, but it will depend on when you book and what you book and the periods (off peaks, etc.).
SalamAir plans to connect Muscat with Salalah with four flights a day, besides flying to Dubai and Jeddah, initially.
Awarded its air service operator licence by the Public Authority for Civil Aviation (PACA) in early 2016, SalamAir’s fleet of three Airbus A320s is scheduled to take to the skies soon.
The brainchild of ASAAS—a national investment and development company—SalamAir was formed to meet Oman’s rapidly growing demand for air traffic, which is expected to grow by 40 per cent by 2019.
