(BE2C2 Report): Oman’s first budget airline SalamAir has announced three direct flights to Multan in Pakistan, starting February 8, 2018.
Multan is SalamAir’s third destination in Pakistan; the airline currently flies to Sialkot and Karachi.
Return tickets can be booked at a price of OMR88 (approx Rs25,256).
The airline has secured final clearances from Pakistani aviation authorities, according to the Times of Oman.
Captain Mohamed Ahmed, CEO of SalamAir, said: “The Pakistani community makes up about 13 per cent of the local expatriates working in Oman, it is therefore no surprise that this route has been one of the highest in demand.”
Captain Ahmed added that the airline has worked very hard with the authorities to ensure that flight timings will allow guests to conveniently connect to other destinations including Dubai, Doha, Jeddah and Salalah via Muscat.
