Oman’s budget airline SalamAir on Sunday launched non-stop flights to Dhaka. The new service is the airline’s fourth destination in the subcontinent, which includes Karachi, Multan and Sialkot.
According to the latest statistics issued by the National Centre for Statistics and Information, the number of Bangladeshis working in the Sultanate is close to 700,000, making them the largest expatriate community in Oman. Catering to their needs, SalamAir will operate four direct weekly flights on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday to Dhaka.
Speaking about the new operations to Dhaka, Captain Mohamed Ahmed, CEO of SalamAir said: “The new Dhaka route is another milestone in our regional expansion plans. We are responding to strong demand facilitated by the large volume of Bangladeshi travellers to Oman and other GCC countries.”
