SalamAir will start its third destination in Pakistan to Karachi with fares starting from RO28 on certain days, the company said and added that bookings are open for the sector. The flight will leave Muscat at 12.30am and to reach Karachi at 3.25am. The return flight will leave Karachi at 4.15am to reach Muscat at 5.05am. Flights will be available on Sunday, Tuesday and Friday. Prices start from RO28.
According to Khalid al Yahmadi, chairman of SalamAir said, “While these services will facilitate increased travel flows, they will also provide important connectivity for enterprises keen to capitalize on Oman’s investor-friendly regulatory framework as they explore the wealth of commercial opportunities in the Sultanate’s diversifying economic base. The flights will also enable Oman’s ambitious business community to profit from the possibilities presented by Pakistan’s booming economy, particularly those of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor.”
François Bouteiller, SalamAir CEO added: “Sialkot and Multan are high-volume destinations and yet remain underserved routes despite Oman being home to over 220,000 Pakistani nationals. By introducing our services to these two cities, we will effectively open the skies for more guests to not only travel to and from Pakistan but also fly through to Jeddah and Madinah in Saudi Arabia, to Dubai, and of course to Salalah.”
