Muscat: SalamAir, the budget airline, is scheduled to operate three direct flights to Multan starting on February 8. Guests can now book their tickets on prices starting from RO 88 return. As SalamAir’s third destination in Pakistan, Multan will complement the airline’s current flights to Sialkot and Karachi. The new route will also further increase connectivity between the two countries, as well as the region. The weekly flights are set to take-off at 11:55 pm from Muscat, arriving in Multan at 3:30 am. The return flights will depart from Multan at 4:50 am arriving in Muscat at 6:35 am.
Captain Mohamed Ahmed, CEO of SalamAir, said: “The addition of Multan to our destinations will allow us to better serve our guests, and cater to rising number of business and leisure travellers. “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. In just a few months, we have flown over 30,000 passengers to and from Pakistan and that is only the beginning. We have bigger plans ahead.”
