Salam Air appoints Omani aviation veteran as part of long term strategy

Muscat – Atheer

Budget airline Salam Air has set a long-term strategy to attract more Omanis to the aviation industry, as well as to build an Omani leadership team so to develop its operations and business growth, in addition to the customer experience.

That coupled with the country’s strategic geographical location at the crossroad of east and west, has set the Sultanate on a growth trajectory,” said Captain Mohamed Ahmed, Salam Air CEO.

He went on to add that with the new Muscat International Airport about to commence operations, it would serve as a modern portal connecting Oman with the rest of the world. “We have a responsibility as the country’s budget airline to help achieve the new aviation strategy targets hand-in-hand with developing our local talent to lead the airline as we grow.”

Since starting operations in January of last year, the airline has achieved rates of Omanisation in excess of sixty percent, operating a contact center that comprises of purely of Omani nationals. This comes in addition to the company’s leadership team, which is fifty percent Omani. The airline aims to increase the number of nationals working within its various departments and its management, so to serve its growing network of destinations.
