SalamAir to Launch Direct Flights to Five Indian Cities Starting December 2023

Oman’s budget airline, SalamAir, is gearing up to introduce direct flights to five prominent Indian destinations from December 2023. The selected cities include Hyderabad, Calicut, Jaipur, Trivandrum, and Lucknow.

Key Highlights:

  • Destinations: The direct flights will connect Oman to the Indian cities of Hyderabad, Calicut, Jaipur, Trivandrum, and Lucknow.
  • Boosting Connectivity: This strategic move aims to enhance connectivity between Gulf countries and the Indian subcontinent.
  • Support from Authorities: The entrance into the Indian market is supported by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) of Sultanate Oman, in collaboration with Oman Air. The CAA has played a crucial role in facilitating this expansion, providing travelers with more convenient and diverse travel options.
  • Excitement and Partnership: Dr. Anwar Mohamed Al Rawas, Chairman of SalamAir, expressed excitement about this achievement and highlighted the ongoing support from the Oman Civil Aviation Authority and the airline’s partnership with Oman Air.


  • Previous Shutdown: This announcement follows the reported shutdown of SalamAir’s flights to India around a month ago (from October 1, 2023). The limited allocation of flight rights to India was cited as the primary reason for the temporary halt.
  • Positive News for Expatriates: The resumption of SalamAir’s budget services to India is welcome news for Indian expatriates in Oman.
  • Flight Schedule: As of now, the airline is yet to announce the flight schedules for the new routes.

SalamAir’s expansion into the Indian market marks a significant step in providing travelers with more accessible and diverse travel choices, fostering stronger air connectivity between Oman and India.
