SalamAir takes delivery of the first A321neo aircraft in Oman Market

To cater to its ever-expanding network, SalamAir, Sultanate’s fastest-growing value-for-money airline, has taken delivery of its first A321neo aircraft.

The efficient A321neo delivers high levels of passenger comfort while expanding seating capacity through optimised use of cabin space.

The A321neo will complement SalamAir’s fleet of six A320neo.

The next-generation A321 aircraft developed by Airbus has a new engine option (NEO).

To elevate the passenger experience, it offers additional seating capacity while allowing augmented use of cabin space.

A redesigned cabin door configuration and supplementary exit limits lift the comfort quotient of the aircraft.

Captain Mohamed Ahmed, CEO of SalamAir, said: “We are pleased to introduce the newest A321neo aircraft into our fleet as we continue to expand our network.

“The induction of the A321neo aircraft marks another step towards meeting the needs of international, regional, and domestic passengers in the perpetually growing aviation market.

“The employment of this aircraft to our fleet with its additional range and extra 32 seats to our existing A320neo will support the growth plans of our airline’s network.

“We are honoured to supplement our airline’s fleet with a new aircraft that offers lower operating costs, superior eco commitment and greater comfort for our passengers.”

“We are also delighted that SalamAir is well-positioned to be part of and help accelerate Oman’s air travel growth and Vison Oman 2040, contributing to the growth of the country is one of the main goals of our company.”

Mikail Houari, President, Airbus Africa and the Middle East said: “We are proud of our partnership with SalamAir.

“The A321neo is a state-of-the-art aircraft that will help expand the airline’s network whilst bringing significant savings to the airline and optimum Passenger comfort.

“We look forward to celebrating many more successes and milestones together for years to come,” .
