Muscat: Oman Air, the national airline of the Sultanate of Oman, has announced new lower fares for Omani nationals traveling between Muscat, Salalah and Khasab.
The new fares are intended to encourage domestic travel and generate economic activity for local communities, both of which will contribute to strengthening the level of competitiveness across the country’s tourism ecosystem.
Mr. Ahmed Ali Al Mahrouqi, Regional Vice President Sales - Oman & GCC, stated that the lower fares initiative reflects Oman Air’s commitment to local communities as the official carrier of the Sultanate of Oman, as well as its ongoing efforts to actively contribute to the revitalization of domestic tourism and economic activity. “Lower fares allow Omanis to discover (and rediscover) the geographical, historical, and natural richness that set the Sultanate of Oman apart from other places in the region as a distinct destination to be enjoyed year-round.” By planning and booking their travel in advance, Omanis can take advantage of the following special economy class fares.
Flights between Muscat and Salalah are operated by Oman Air’s wide-body fleet, including Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Airbus 330 aircraft (in addition to Boeing 737) and offer up to eight flights per day in each direction. This allows for flexible travel arrangements and better 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.
