Oman's Salam Air launches new flights to Phuket

Oman-based low-cost carrier Salam Air adds direct flights to global holiday hotspot to its network

Phuket boasts white sand beaches, deep blue waters, and lush green jungles.

Oman-based low-cost carrier Salam Air has launched direct flights from Muscat to Phuket, one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations.

The new link, launched earlier this week, initially operates three times a week on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, departing Muscat at 4am local time and arriving in Phuket at 1pm local time. The flight will depart Phuket at 1.45pm local time arriving in Muscat at 5.15pm local time.

Mohamed Ahmed, CEO of Salam Air said: “We are delighted to enter Thailand, a very promising destination for us, given the fact that Oman is a large tourism source market for this popular southeast Asia country.

“This new route demonstrates our commitment to continually expand our network. Expansion has been a top priority for us and we are proud to have recorded significant progress on this front this year since we have added several new destinations. We will continue with our network and fleet expansion in 2020.”

He added: “The sultanate has long established trade and people-to-people ties with Thailand and the country is a significant market for Oman. We believe the new services offered by Salam Air to Phuket will greatly contribute to the growth of tourism and trade of Thailand.”

Phuket boasts white sand beaches, deep blue waters, and lush green jungles. A major tourist destination, it is home to many high-end seaside resorts, spas and restaurants.

Salam Air also flies to domestic destinations including Muscat, Salalah and Suhar and international destinations to Abu Dubai, Dubai, Bahrain, Kuwait, Doha, Jeddah, Riyadh, Dammam, Tehran, Shiraz, Istanbul, Alexandria, Khartoum, Multan, Sialkot, Karachi, Dhaka, Chattogram, Kathmandu, and Colombo.
