Oman’s first budget airline Salam Air has announced that it will fly to Salalah, Dubai and Jeddah when it begins operations later this year.

According to the Times of Oman, the routes announcement was made during a brand identity event attended by government officials and shareholders.

It said ticketing facilities for the airline will begin in a few weeks, adding that the airline will begin operations with three aircraft.

Earlier this month, it was announced that François Bouteiller would be the airline’s launch CEO after previously heading Flynas, the Saudi low-cost carrier.

The airline aims to cater to the sultanate’s traffic demand which is expected to grow by 40 percent by 2019, a statement said.

The recently formed Salam Air board of directors held its first meeting in the end of September after securing private Omani investors to partner with ASAAS and TANMIA, both of which are owned by the State General Reserve Fund, Pension Funds and Muscat Municipality.

Salam Air has leased three Airbus A320s from South American-based carrier LATAM ahead of its launch.
