SalamAir Adds Bahrain to Its GCC Network

As part of its regional network expansion, Sultanate’s fastest-growing value-for-money airline SalamAir has added a new direct service from Muscat to Bahrain.

With the introduction of flights to Bahrain, SalamAir now flies to all Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries in the region.

The connectivity reflects the strong ties between Sultanate of Oman and the kingdom of Bahrain in a number of areas including culture, commerce and tourism.

Scheduled to commence from November 14, 2019, the new link will initially operate three times a week on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday departing Muscat at 19:05 local time and arriving in Bahrain at 19:50 local time. The flight will depart Bahrain at 20:35 local time arriving in Muscat at 23:10 local time. From December 2019 onwards, SalamAir will fly six times a week to Bahrain except on Fridays following the same schedule.

The Bahrain route is the airline’s tenth destination in the GCC, which includes DubaiDohaRiyadhJeddahKuwaitAbu DhabiMuscat, Salalah, and Suhar.
