Operating five weekly flights from Muscat International Airport to Hamad International Airport, the new route will "offer travelers in Oman and across the region a safe and reliable budget travel alternative, to represent Oman and promote its tremendous tourism potential and alternatively contribute to its economic growth," said Mohamed Ahmed, chief executive officer of SalamAir.
