ISLAMABAD - Oman's budget airline is set to begin flights to two Pakistani cities next month, in a major relief for the passengers.

The carrier -SalamAir - would start operating flights to Islamabad and Lahore on the 8th and 9th of July, respectively, providing travelers with extended options to travel between the two countries.

As per the announcement, SalamAir will operate five flights a week to Islamabad and three to Lahore, increasing the carrier's footprint in the subcontinent region. This fresh expansion brings the total number of destinations operated in Pakistan to six.

Commenting on the development, the carrier's CEO, Adrian Hamilton-Manns, said he was enthusiastic about introducing flights to Pakistan's capitals, Islamabad and Lahore, adding that these additions underscore the airline’s goal to improve connectivity and provide passengers with more convenience.

There have been multiple developments for Pakistan's aviation industry as Malaysian airline Batik Air also launched direct flights between Karachi and Kuala Lumpur recently.

Besides, American carrier, Ravn Alaska Airlines is also keen to start the operation of flights from Pakistan for which it has also got in touch with the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA).
