MUSCAT, JUNE 19


Oman Air, the national carrier of the Sultanate of Oman, will ramp up flight frequencies on its Muscat-Salalah-Muscat sector to a total of 112 weekly flights from June 23 till September 11, 2022.


The airline offers wide-body service between Muscat and Salalah, including the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Airbus A330 in addition to the Boeing 737, with eight flights per day in each direction, providing flexible travel and connecting flight options. The first flight from Muscat departs at 02:05, and the last flight departs at 20:20. Salalah's first flight leaves at 04:50, while the last flight leaves at 22:45.


“Salalah is teeming with tourists from all across the Gulf region at this time of year'', stated Ahmed bin Ali al Mahrouqi, Regional Vice-President — Oman & GCC. “Verdant mountains, cool drizzle and breathtaking natural settings serve as a magnet to tourists who wish to get away from hotter climes. Year after year, the number of people who are fascinated by the wonderful khareef phenomenon that surrounds the beautiful city of Salalah grows dramatically." Salalah packages were also created by Oman Air Holidays, allowing travellers to see some of the most popular tourist attractions in and around Salalah. Each package is designed to give tourists a taste of some of the city's most popular attractions. Throughout its network, the airline has initiated numerous promotional activities aimed at travel agencies, tour operators, and the general public to unveil its new packages which are created with care for anyone in search of a bespoke, unforgettable holiday experience.


"To satisfy this burgeoning demand, Oman Air has boosted its Salalah frequency, now offering 238,754 seats and convenient connections between Salalah and major destinations via Muscat'', Al Mahrouqi said. “Salalah's reputation as a top tourist destination during the khareef (monsoon) season is reflected by the addition of flights on the sector.”
