The airline will launch two direct weekly flights to the Czech capital
SalamAir, a low-cost airline based in Oman, is set to launch two direct flights a week to Prague in the Czech Republic, from Muscat and Salalah, starting from 4 November 2022.
SalamAir’s flights to Prague are scheduled on Friday from Muscat and Wednesday from Salalah. The airline will operate its fleet of modern A320neo and A321neo on flights to Prague, its second destination in Europe, marking the airline’s expansion into Europe.
Speaking about the launch, SalamAir CEO Mohamed Ahmed said: "SalamAir is very excited to connect Oman with Prague. The new connection creates an excellent opportunity for the citizens of the Czech Republic to explore the warm weather in Oman and visit the popular attractions in Muscat and Salalah, which supports Oman's 2040 vision."
"Similarly, Prague represents a fantastic destination for travellers 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.
Ahmed added: "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."

SalamAir aviation business director Travel Marketing International, GSA Jaroslav Filip 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 SalamAir to transport up to 9,000 passengers in one direction between Oman and Czech Republic during the winter operational season. Until now, destinations in Oman have mainly been operated from Prague by seasonal charter flights."
