Kuwait City will become SalamAir’s sixth destination in the GCC, after direct flights to Doha, Dubai, and Jeddah, in addition to the recently launched routes to Riyadh and the direct flights between Abu Dhabi and Salalah.

Starting in June, SalamAir will fly daily to Kuwait City. Flights will depart from Muscat to Kuwait on Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday at 09:20 and arrive in Kuwait at 10:30. The return flight will depart Kuwait at 11:10, arriving in Muscat at 14:10. As for Mondays, Wednesdays, Friday and Saturday flights, SalamAir will depart Muscat at 16:10 arriving in Kuwait at 17:20 with the return flights departing from Kuwait at 18:00 and arriving in Muscat at 21:00.

Captain Mohamed Ahmed, CEO of SalamAir, said: “The GCC domestic and regional aviation markets have been undergoing a significant transformation over the last few years with an increasing number of travellers opting for cost-effective travel. This is a change in the dynamic of the travel industry in the region in which we welcome at SalamAir. Starting direct daily flights between Muscat and Kuwait City is in line with our strategy to offer both leisure and business travellers new flight alternatives at record low prices, while ensuring elevated levels of service, convenience and comfort.”

SalamAir has also opened its first office in Kuwait, and has collaborated with full-service travel management company, Boodai Aviation Group.

The new office, located at the Avenues mall, will offer a full range of services including reservations and ticketing, itinerary changes, purchase of value-added options, as well as provide guests with general information and support to better plan their travels.

Robert Hayek, group general manager of Boodai Aviation Group, said: “We are thrilled to be working with SalamAir to bring what it offers to the travel market in Kuwait. Whether for leisure or business, we will offer our clients more choice, more access and above all a one-on-one interaction to help them experience SalamAir. We are offering them a new option for cost-effective travel built around convenience.”

Today, the SalamAir network consists of 17 destinations including Muscat, Salalah, Sohar, Dubai, Doha, Jeddah, Karachi, Multan, Sialkot, Shiraz, Kathmandu, Khartoum, Dhaka, Alexandria, Riyadh and Abu Dhabi. - TradeArabia News Service
