According to the new airline, “SalamAir is the brainchild of ASAAS, a national investment and development company, SalamAir was formed to meet Oman’s rapidly increasing demand for air traffic, which is expected to grow by 40% by 2019. ASAAS has made a substantial initial investment in SalamAir, its anchor venture, with the ambition to advance the airline as a catalyst for Oman’s development and diversification agenda, and as a key component of the broader efforts to promote tourism and hospitality across the sector’s value chain.”
