Written by: Ivo Gračanin.
To cater to its ever-expanding network, SalamAir has taken delivery of its first A321neo aircraft. The A321neo will complement SalamAir's fleet of six A320neo.
With the induction of the A321neo, SalamAir has become the first airline in the country to introduce the aircraft to its fleet. The aircraft's extra range capability of eight hours meets the ambitious plans of the airline. SalamAir can now connect Muscat and Salalah further to Europe, Far East, and African new destinations. The new fleet mix will enable SalamAir to diversify its portfolio and support the Sultanate of Oman's tourism industry vision.
Masirah, the name of the new aircraft, offers a new “all-inclusive” fare class. The premium class cabin is a response to the passengers’ desire of having bundled inclusive services that cater to their travel needs. The seating capacity of the new aircraft will be 212 seats equipped with USB ports, HEPA air filtration system and leather seats.
