SalamAir to operate direct scheduled flights between Oman and the Czech Republic

Making one of the world’s most popular destinations accessible to travelers from the Sultanate, Oman’s value-for-money airline has announced a direct connection to Prague – the fantastic capital city of the Czech Republic from Muscat and Salalah.

Starting from the 4th of November, SalamAir will fly twice a week to Prague.

Prague’s historic center features on the UNESCO World Heritage List and is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.

The stunning city offers everything that makes a fascinating holiday, from unspoiled island destinations to enchanting alleys, gorgeous cathedrals, perfect art galleries, spectacular bridges, and much more.

A modern metropolis pulsating with life, Prague is considered one of the finest cities in the world.

Offering the perfect opportunity to take the trip of a lifetime to the ultimate “city of a thousand spires”, SalamAir flights to Prague departures are scheduled every Friday from Muscat and every Wednesday from Salalah.

The carrier, which operates a fleet of modern A320neo and A321neo, has selected the Czech Republic as its second destination in Europe.

The new destination in its network marks the airline’s further expansion into central Europe.

SalamAir is confident Prague will appeal to a broad range of leisure travelers looking to satisfy their wanderlust.

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 SalamAir, said, “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 nine thousand 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.”
