Muscat - SalamAir, Oman’s first budget airline, has welcomed Pakistan to its fast-growing route network with direct flights to Sialkot beginning on May 16 and Multan on May 23. 



SalamAir services to both cities will operate thrice weekly with one-way tickets starting at just RO30, stated a press release.



Khalid al Yahmadi, chairman of SalamAir underscored the key role these new routes will play in promoting business and leisure travel between Oman and Pakistan.



“While these services will facilitate increased travel flows, they will also provide important connectivity for enterprises keen to capitalise on Oman’s investor-friendly regulatory framework. They will also be able to explore the wealth of commercial opportunities in the sultanate’s diversifying economic base. The flights will also enable Oman’s business community to profit from the possibilities presented by Pakistan’s booming economy, particularly those of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.”



François Bouteiller, SalamAir CEO added, “Sialkot and Multan are high-volume destinations and yet remain underserved routes despite Oman being home to over 220,000 Pakistanis.



“By introducing our services to these two cities, we will effectively open the skies for more guests to not only travel to and from Pakistan but also fly through to Jeddah and Medina in Saudi Arabia, to Dubai, and of course to Salalah.”



He added, “SalamAir has enjoyed tremendous success since its launch in January this year and we are steadfast on continuing our growth trajectory by consistently offering our guests reliable, affordable and quality services on ground and on-board.”



In addition to flying thrice weekly to Sialkot and Multan, the SalamAir fleet of A320s flies four times daily to Salalah, twice daily to Dubai DWC Airport, daily to Jeddah, and thrice weekly to Medina.



Bouteiller went on to highlight that in the next stage of its expansion, SalamAir will be introducing services to Karachi as well as adding select seasonal flights to its schedule. Accommodating the needs of Umrah travellers during Ramadan, the airline will launch flights to Taif in addition to boosting the frequency of its service to Medina. Tourists in Oman will also be catered to with the addition of more flights to Salalah during the popular khareef season, added the release.



All routes offer a choice of three easy fare options: Light, Friendly and Flexi. Always offering value for money, a cost-conscious menu of additional services is available to guests, which includes extra luggage allowance, seat selection, and priority check-in.

Published: May 24, 2017


LAHORE: SalamAir – a recent addition to Pakistan’s air carriers – seeks to generate business by transporting pilgrims for religious rituals.



The six-month-old airline has chosen second-tier cities like Sialkot and Multan as its target for transporting passengers to Muscat thrice a week.



Muscat will serve as a fast transit city for the final destination of Pakistani passengers in Jeddah as the airline believes that transporting pilgrims for Hajj, Umrah and other religious places from Pakistan could generate a huge business for the airline.



The airline’s decision to choose Sialkot as its first destination is due to the trade potential the city provides for Oman and the rest of the world.



Adressing a press conference Tuesday, SalamAir Chief Executive Officer Francois Bouteiller said, “We have introduced an innovative approach to travel on new routes to and from Pakistan as we offers affordable and quality service.”



He said Sialkot and Multan routes would also facilitate onward journeys through the airline’s regular service to Jeddah and Madina in Saudi Arabia, to Dubai and to Salalah in the south of Oman.



In addition to its existing route network, the airline will be launching seasonal travel options including flights from Muscat to Taif during Ramazan and additional services to Madina in the holy month. The airline will also increase its flights to Salalah during the popular monsoon season.



“I am confident the increased connectivity provided by SalamAir on these currently under-served routes will strengthen trade relations between Pakistan and Oman,” said SalamAir Chairman Khalid Al Yahmadi.



“The flights will promote business and leisure travel between Pakistan and Oman, serving in particular needs of the Sultanate’s vibrant Pakistani expatriate community, currently over 220,000,” he added.



Additionally, the new services will facilitate travel for Omanis keen to explore business possibilities in Pakistan’s booming economy, particularly the wealth of opportunities presented by the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.



“For its part, Pakistan’s business community will be able to capitalise on Oman’s investor-friendly regulatory framework and the many lucrative commercial options for Oman’s diversifying economic base, which include tourism, manufacturing, fisheries, mining and logistics,” Yahmadi added.



The airline kicked off its operations from Sialkot on May 17 and flights from Multan began on May 23. In coming months, the management will add Karachi as its third destination from Pakistan.



According to the management, one-way fares start from Rs9,900, but depending on demand the rates may fluctuate.



Launched in 2016, SalamAir is Oman’s first budget carrier. Initiated by ASAAS, a national investment and development company, SalamAir has been set up to meet Oman’s rapidly increasing demand for air traffic at affordable prices and generate further opportunities for employment and business creation within various sectors in the Arab nation.
