Oman’s homegrown airline SalamAir has launched a thrice-weekly service between Abu Dhabi and Salalah, allowing travellers from the UAE to conveniently visit the popular holiday destination. The inaugural SalamAir flight will continue running until 7 September 2019.
Speaking of the seasonal arrangement, chief commercial officer of Abu Dhabi Airports, Maarten De Groof, commented, “Salalah is an ever-popular destination for those in the UAE seeking a cooler and nature driven destination during the summer months. With SalamAir, travellers looking to visit the Omani destination will be able to take advantage of three weekly cost-effective flights.”
“We also look forward to welcoming travellers from the south of Oman to the city of Abu Dhabi, and sharing with them the wide range of cultural, entertainment and retail destinations the city has to offer,” De Groof added.
Captain Mohamed Ahmed, CEO, Salam Air said, “Salalah is proving to be an extremely popular destination, with GCC residents in particular keen to escape the summer heat. Our new Abu Dhabi to Salalah flights will be a boon to UAE residents looking for the perfect staycation this summer, especially as Khareef season is now upon us.”
