SalamAir to launch Taif flights this week

SalamAir, Oman's first budget airline, has revealed that it will launch flights to Taif in Saudi Arabia this week with plans to add Sohar after Ramadan, said a report.

“We’re launching the Salalah-Taif-Salalah on June 8, 2017 and we will launch Salalah-Sohar-Salalah flights after Ramadan. We shall communicate on the exact date soon,” said Francois Bouteiller, chief executive officer of SalamAir,

The opening up of the Sohar airport will help the people of the Al Batinah North Governorate once again after Oman Air closed down its route, said a report in Times of Oman.

"These new flights will open new tourism, trade and investment opportunities, contributing to the Omani economy by attracting more tourists and business travellers and in turn spur the creation of employment opportunities in the sultanate,” said SalamAir chairman Khalid al Yahmadi.

SalamAir’s expansion to Saudi Arabia adds to the airline’s existing Muscat, Salalah, and Dubai daily flight services.
