Oman Air increases services to Salalah

Posted 17 August 2021 · Add Comment

Due to the Khareef season demand for travel to Salalah in Oman’s southern Dhofar Governorate, Oman Air has gradually increased weekly flight frequencies from an average of 18 weekly flights in July to a total of 41 weekly flights at the beginning of August.

Both Muscat-to-Salalah and Salalah-to-Muscat reached a total of 41 weekly flights and 7820 weekly seats each way, for a grand total of 82 weekly flights and 15,640 weekly seats. The extra flights reflect Salalah’s popularity as a leading domestic destination during Khareef (monsoon) season, a time of year when the region is bathed in an abundance of rain, lush greenery, and cool air.

 

Adil Al Zadjali, Oman Air country manager (Oman) said: “Salalah remains an extremely popular domestic destination and our commitment at Oman Air is to provide travel flexibility for our valued guests with the convenience of extra flights when needed. Khareef season—and all the visual splendor it offers—transforms Muscat to Salalah into one of our busiest routes. By progressively introducing 23 additional weekly flights in each direction, visitors to the region have been able to book their seats with full confidence. As domestic travel rebounds, our aim now is to develop a revised flight schedule that lets us maintain exceptional year-round frequencies to Salalah.”
