Oman’s value-for-money airline Salam Air has announced that it will become the first Omani carrier to operate direct flights to the Czech Republic.
Starting from the 4th of November, SalamAir will fly twice a week to Prague.
Captain Mohamed Ahmed, CEO of SalamAir, said, “we are very excited to connect Oman with the capital city of the Czech Republic.
“The new connection creates an excellent opportunity for the citizen of the Czech Republic to explore the warm weather in Oman and visit one of the most popular attraction sites in Muscat and Salalah, which support Oman’s 2040 vision.
“Similarly, Prague represents a fantastic destination for travelers in terms of beauty and culture.
“The city embraces its rich history and provides the perfect backdrop for a memorable trip.
“The city is known for transforming itself during the winter months.
“We are committed to opening every possible door to different markets, enabling travel, trade, and business while creating demand for new travellers looking to explore and experience unforgettable holidays.”
Jaroslav Filip, Aviation Business Director of Travel Marketing International, GSA for Salam Air, “The connection from the Czech Republic to Salalah in Oman clearly has strong tourist potential.
“Moreover, in the case of the direct Muscat route, we can also see its business potential, and the possibility of transfers to more distant destinations in the Middle East and Asia.
“We expect that SalamAir could transport up to 9,000 passengers in one direction between Oman and the Czech Republic during the winter operational season.
“Until now, destinations in Oman have mainly been operated from Prague by seasonal charter flights.”
