Oman’s SalamAir to add 6 A320neos, plots route expansion

The airline will soon fly to Kuwait City and Riyadh and is plotting further expansion


Omani low cost carrier SalamAir has announced plans to add six Airbus A30neo planes to its fleet.

The plans include one jet due for delivery by the fourth quarter and five to be leased by the first quarter of 2019.

Each will be custom built for SalamAir with 180 seats.

The airline said it would use the additions to expand its network of 12 destinations with new routes from Oman to Kuwait City and Riyadh.

It is also eyeing Khartoum, Egypt, Iraq, Dhaka, Kathmandu and various cities across India for further growth and will increase flight frequencies on existing popular routes Salalah, Multan, Sialkot and Shiraz, according to the announcement.

“The Middle East is one of the fastest growing regions within the aviation industry today and we at SalamAir, want to open the skies for more guests, making it easier and more affordable to fly,” said CEO captain Mohamed Ahmed, who took the role last September.
