Peshawar’s Bacha Khan International Airport welcomed the inaugural flight of Oman-based airline SalamAir from Muscat on Monday. The flight touched down at 3:13 am, marking the beginning of SalamAir’s service to the city.
The airline has plans to expand its operations in Pakistan with seven weekly flights to Karachi and three each to Multan and Sialkot, offering increased connectivity to passengers.
The arrival of the inaugural flight was met with a traditional water salute by the airport’s fire tenders as it taxied on taxiway-B. SalamAir’s Managing Director, Mohsin Albalushi, and Director of Operations, Maaz Albalushi, were on board the flight to Peshawar.
Peshawar’s airport saw the presence of senior officials from SalamAir Group and Menzies-Royal Airport Services (M-RAS) who were there to welcome the aircraft. A brief celebration was organized to mark this special occasion.
The airline’s Muscat-Peshawar route, which operates on Mondays and Thursdays, is expected to provide a convenient travel option for both tourists and residents traveling between Oman and Pakistan. The addition of SalamAir’s services is set to enhance air connectivity and transportation options in the region.
