SalamAir has launched a new route connecting Muscat, Oman with Dhaka, Bangladesh. It is SalamAir’s fourth destination in the Indian subcontinent; the carrier already flies to Karachi, Multan, and Sialkot. At the time of writing, return tickets to Dhaka are currently available at special promotional fares.
SalamAir will operate its new service four times per week on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.
Being a low-cost carrier, SalamAir offers multiple fare options. Though a “bare fare” includes only basic services, passengers can receive extra luggage allowance, seat selection, and a meal for an additional charge.
“The new Dhaka route is another milestone in our regional expansion plans. We are responding to strong demand facilitated by the large volume of Bangladeshi travelers to Oman and other GCC countries,” said Captain Mohamed Ahmed, CEO of SalamAir. “We will continue expanding our network and connect Oman with direct flights to key new destinations, offering our guests exciting travel possibilities with competitive market rates. Above all, whether travelling for leisure, business or returning home, our guests will enjoy a flexible rewarding itinerary.”
According to Oman’s National Centre for Statistics and Information, there are close to 700,000 Bangladeshis working in Oman. Bangladeshis make up the largest expatriate community in Oman.
SalamAir’s network includes Muscat, Salalah, Suhar, Dubai, Doha, Jeddah, Karachi, Multan, Sialkot, Shiraz, Tbilisi, Baku, and Dhaka. At the Farnborough Airshow earlier this month, the airline signed an agreement for six additional Airbus A320neo airplanes.
